UPDATE: good news some good news for Sony Bravia Engine and Samsung Galaxy S2
i started to doubt about the Bravia stuff after i posted it days ago, i asked myself some questions:
- how can the engine work with the properties in prop file alone?
- without any library files or apps, what makes the engine to load the be_movie and be_photo file?
- if this trick really works, then the engine should be known by the Android system in advance or being part of it. does it?
unfortunately, it looks like we were all misled by the brand name - Sony, we believed their technologies in display units are better ... i must admit that i was one of them
I searched for the Sony Bravia Engine thing and found that we need at least two more lib files to start the engine: libswiqibmpcnv.so and libiwiOmxUtil.so, which should be come with Android devices made by Sony
moreover, it is likely that, without an proper application, these lib files wont be loaded into our Android system
as a result, it means that, the Bravia Engine was not working with our SGS2 before, at least for now
please accept my sincere apologies
PS if you followed my installation steps, it is safe to remove the files with the instructions stated in my previous post and it should not do any harm to your system
