I didn't really have to see that link to know that the X10 does not share the same hardware as the Arc,
but thank you anyway, it is quite clarifying.
Still, even though X10 display is sub-par, that does not change the fact that the Bravia Engine library
is software-compatible to the X10 and can enhance the photo representation.
The grep I posted proves it.
The link refers to the hardware specs of the phones that come with Bravia Engine bundled.
Nobody ever said we can get the Arc hardware in an update zip. :lol:
Just some cool enhancements...
So let's all just stay cool, shall we? :)
That's why Bravia Engine isn't working.
You still have that option in the Settings though, right?
In that case, flash this zip through xRec
(it will not affect any of WB's tweaks, as I have removed the build.prop file and only left the libraries that you are missing).
Then repeat the tests and enjoy! ;)
The screenshots on XDA are... screenshots.
It means that they represent the output of the display.
The actual image is not affected, so the image will look on your PC the way it was captured,
but on your mobile it will be enhanced by the Bravia Engine.
I hope this made things a little more clear to you. ;)
You are right, your screenshots indicate that it is not working for you.
But this doesn't mean that it isn't true and, frankly,
it's you that should check things out before spamming threads or insulting other members.
Start by checking if the libraries for Bravia Engine are installed, by using Root Explorer and
going to /system/etc looking for those 2 files: be_movie and be_photo, with permissions: rw-rw-rw-.
If they are there, check again that Bravia Engine is actually ON (ticked) by going to Settings > Display.
It's not about admiring or insulting anybody. It just works.
Here's yet another comparison, made by me:
The difference is not massive -it's not supposed to be- but you can clearly see that the 2nd image is crisper,
with deeper blacks and more vibrant colors.
And please don't think even for a minute that I would spend my time photoshoping screenshots just to prove something to anyone. ;)
