LLVMpipe Ported To Android x86 For Running Android Apps Without GPU Support
Chih-Wei Huang of the Android-x86 project who has partnered up with Remix OS / Jide Technology posted the LLVMpipe Android support patches today. Jide Technology, the company behind the Android-powered Remix OS, is responsible for these patches.
It took around 600 lines of code for enabling LLVMpipe to provide software rendering support on Android. Chih-Wei Huang commented, "This is a series of patches developed by Jide Technolody to enable the llvmpipe for software rendering of Android. It makes a device without a Mesa supported GPU could run most modern Android apps."
Hopefully these patches will be worked into a state that they can be merged into mainline Mesa, but until then you can apply them against stable Mesa with this patch series.
