Devs get HDMI mirroring working on AOSP for HTC EVO [Updated with video]
Hot on the heels of the beta release of FullHDMI, an app that enables HDMI mirroring on rooted HTC EVO 4Gs running Sense-based ROMs, comes photographic and tweet evidence that the team working on full HDMI for AOSP ROMs is celebrating a few victories of its own.
Last week, Shinzul and crew got HDMI mirroring working in CyanogenMod 7, generally regarded as the king of vanilla Android-based ROMs. Then just a few days ago, they got it working on AOSP straight from the video drivers at an astonishing rate of 80+ frames per second! Shinzul says in another tweet that it "won't need to run that fast [when it's released] because [they] want it to be smoothly mirroring the panel," but knowing that it can be done is nothing short of amazing.
There's no word on when the new functionality will make its public debut in a CM7 nightly, but what's another day/week/month of living without HDMI mirroring?
Update: Video teaser now available below.
