Halium on ASUS ZenFone 5

Halium is a hardware abstraction layer developed collaboratively by multiple open source communities (KDE, UBPorts, Mer, LuneOS) to enable Android devices to run GNU/Linux distributions.

I had posted this news on Twitter some time ago, but I’m still happy that my port got mature enough to deliver hardware-accelerated graphics:

This port is quite special as the phone has an x86 CPU, a PowerVR GPU and a closed-source HWComposer. To make it possible, I authored a number of patches to Libhybris and Halium; as of now, most of them have been merged. I am going to continue my work on the device.
