Android for MSM patches (kernel-EDID-Chnages-for-the-ADV7533)


#1

I downloaded the latest Android Board Support Package here:
https://developer.qualcomm.com/download/db410c/android_board_support_package_vla.br_.1.2.4-01810-8x16.0-3.zip

I noticed that it in its build script it grabs the following patch archive (Modified Jan 20 2016 8:55 PM):
https://us.codeaurora.org/patches/quic/la/PATCH_8x16_129905_410c_LA.BR.1.2.4-01810-8x16.0.tar.gz

This patch archive includes the following patches:

Is there any way I can learn more about some of these changes?

In particular, I noticed that EDID support was added with the following patch:
├── kernel
│ ├── 0002-msm-kernel-EDID-Chnages-for-the-ADV7533.patch

I would like to know how the display will be configured in the event that EDID is not present.

Thanks!

Hello,

if the display that you use does not support EDID it should default to 1080p as the default resolution.
