NOT COMPATIBLE WITH HONEYCOMB

About
Chainfire3D is an intermediary OpenGL driver. What does that mean? It means that Chainfire3D sits between your apps and the graphics drivers, and can intercept and/or change commands between the two. It has some built-in functions, and can be further extended with plugins to provide extra functionality.

Features
- CF3D OpenGL driver

- NightMode (inspired by Jeff Sharkey, more info

 here)
--- Handy shortcut to toggle on/off
--- Supports red, green, blue, amber and salmon modes

- Global OpenGL manipulation
--- Reduce texture size
--- Reduce texture quality
--- Unroll textures
--- Load plugins
--- (Pro) Disable Chainfire3D detection

- (Pro) OpenGL manipulation on a per-app bases
- (Pro) Fix market settings

A bit more detail about some features

NightMode
NightMode reduces the number of colors on your screen, which on OLED screens saves a lot of battery. The various modes (especially red) are also great in low-light conditions, as they have less effect on your night-vision than a full-color screen

Generic note about textures
The features below are only used if a texture format is supported. Natively Chainfire3D only supports raw textures, but these can be extended through plugins.

Reduce texture size
This essentially cuts (supported) textures' resolution in half, which usually reduces memory use (4x) and improves performance, at the cost of slightly reducing texture quality. This is not compatible with all apps! For many 3D apps, this works, as the GPU stretches the graphics, but it does not work for many 2D apps.

Reduce texture quality
This converts 32-bit textures to 16-bit textures, reducing memory use (2x). This will lower texture quality, but for many games the difference isn't even visible. Whether this is actually faster or slower depends on your hardware.

Unroll textures
Converts non-32-bit textures to 32-bit. This should not influence texture quality, but it does use more memory. On some hardware this is faster than using 16-bit textures.

Disable Chainfire3D detection
For compatibility reasons, Chainfire3D announces to applications that it is being used. Using this feature you can turn that off.

Fix market settings
Plugins may add support for various features not normally supported by your hardware. Market, however, only reports the functionality your hardware provides. Using this feature, Chainfire3D will adjust Market so it also shows apps that require the features provided by the plugins. This is not useful without the plugins :)

Plugins / API
At the moment, the Plugin API is rather limited, but it does allow for some rather interesting plugins like Tegra2 / PowerVR / ATI texture emulation (see the API docs a post below). The idea is to further improve Chainfire3D so Plugins can manipulate the entire OpenGL data stream.

Pro version
As outlined above, the Pro version adds a little bit of functionality. Purchasing it will support my efforts.

Pro version - warez
Chainfire3D Pro is available from some warez sites, if you feel like ripping me off :) However I should warn you that none of those versions actually work as the real Pro version does.

Requirements
- OpenGL ES 2.0 (every 1ghz+ phone has this)
- SuperUser / Root
- Writable /system (it will try to remount system as read/write when needed, but the changes need to stick between reboots)
- S-OFF ?
- Having root access from recovery is a big plus to solve problems if you run into them (run "/system/lib/cf3d_uninstall.sh" as root to remove the driver and restore the old one)

CF3D driver installation
There is some risk involved, so you should have either root access in recovery, a CWM backup, or a firmware to flash handy. Nevertheless, the driver has been tested and found working on the following devices:

- HTC HD2
- Samsung Galaxy S
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 7"
- Samsung Galaxy S II
- Samsung Epic 4G
- Motorola Atrix 4G
- Motorola Droid 2
- LG Optimus 2X
- Google Nexus S

It's likely to work on far more devices. So far nobody has reported a failed install, so that's good. Doesn't mean problems can't happen.

Note: If you were running the "CF3D :: NightMode" application earlier, you should uninstall it before installing this.

you have download these Plug-ins





then extract in the root of the sd card.

after open the chainfire and then go to install plug.

Then go to default opengl setting then go to use plugin then click nvidia. This will make your phone be seen to have a tegra 2 GPU.

Also i recommend download the apps from applanet or droidappz.org to test them out if they run smoothly on your phone.

U can try. I haven't tried with of droid I have lying around yet. I felt the bottle neck on the Powervr will make not work as good as the other phone.
