Article on Missing Libraries

>> Saturday, August 10, 2013

I submitted this post without fully examining OpenCL on the Android. Please see the next post.

I have a high opinion of Rahul Garg, but his article conflicts with my experience. I just installed the 4.3 factory image for the Nexus 10, and using adb, I verified that libGLES_mali.so was still in the system/vendor/lib/egl directory. When I launched my OpenCL testing app, it told me the GPU supports OpenCL 1.1. For the Nexus 10 at least, it appears that OpenCL development is still available.

I don't own a Nexus 7, so I can't answer as to whether its libraries are still available or not.

Hi Matt. My understanding is that the OpenCL runtime is still available but the compiler has been disabled. So it is now not possible to compile OpenCL kernels on the device.

Oh no... you're right. Damn, I'll write another post in just a second.
