    abhibnl , Nov 14, 2018 :
    Before starting, all credits goes to the following XDA thread. I am merely sharing it here in case maybe it will benefit someone in anyway possible. It's not my work and i will take no responsibility if you did something other than instructions and resulted in a bootloop. Also, don't expect me to provide any dev support. I am just sharing someone else's work in case anyone isn't on XDA or not aware of this mod.

    Original Thread:

    Things to Remember:
    Snapdragon 820/821 = msm8996

    OS Compatibility:
    Android 8.0 : V@313
    Android 8.1 : V@313
    Android 9.0 : V@313 | V@319 | V@328 | V@330 | V@331

    Instructions for MSM8996 only:
    1. Download the zip file. Rename file in the zip file with name "vulkan.xxx.so" in system/vendor/lib/hw and system/vendor/lib64/hw to "vulkan.msm8996.so". You can use a zip app from play store to do this easily.
    2. Boot into TWRP
    3. Make sure your SYSTEM and VENDOR partitions are not read only. (OP3/T by default has no vendor partition as we don't have treble support.) Just in case, mount SYSTEM and VENDOR partitions before flash the zip file.
    4. Flash the modified zip file, wipe Dalvik Cache and Cache.
    5. After flash, boot into system, and check if your GPU Version driver has changed (you can use AIDA64). and you can test benchmark if you want (i suggest 3DMark or Antutu).

    File Downloads (Provided by XDA Thread, Not me):

    Note: You can use AIDA64 to confirm if driver version has changed. Open app, go to Display and then check GPU version. I am currently using 313 R23 on OOS 5.0.6.

    This is only a mirror of the original XDA thread so there's no point asking this question here.

    Though, I already know the answer and currently it's a no not available.

    Considering they are 2018 devices and being actively developed, there will no point for custom updated drivers as both devices shall have them already. So i don't think we will see any mod like this for those two devices. This has helped me a bit with the lags in PubG but that's about it. And yeah, it's merely a mirror and i wanted the OP3 community here to know that something like this exists. :)

    I'm pretty sure Adreno 630 already has drivers. That's the reason the phones running on that GPU exist.

    For the love of god, please suggest where did I say or the original thread says, that this is supported on OP6? You are in OP3/T section. if that wasn't an indication enough, the title says that its for Adreno 5XX gpu, and you have Adreno 6XX gpu
    I don't understand how a person can be so idiot that they can't properly read and yet try to play around with custom mods/drivers/ROMs/Kernels.
    Please don't anymore, you will damage your device eventually.

    I didnt say that you suggest us to flash this on OP6 a friend of mine tried before just for testing purpose. I own a Poco F1 and if you name idiot a tester for many years now ok then

    Then I would call you a tester with no brain at all and i am not sure what and how you were doing this "testing" all these years. Don't mind the words as i am not this harsh always but it's in the title "Adreno 5xx GPU Driver"
    Why would you even test a product made for a 5 series GPU when your Poco and OP6 both have 6 series GPUs?

    Brother @Jole7
    All I am saying is, these custom drivers, and even this thread isn't meant for OP6/T. Why would you want to "try and see if it boots anyways"? It's like trying to boot 1080's drivers on 2080 GPUs. They are completely different and it makes no sense to try and flash things like that. These drivers don't improve any performance. These are simply updated than what your stock firmware comes with. That's all!

    It's working great on my 3T running OOS 5.0.8 + Magisk v19.0 + FKr46.

    It's not available as a Magisk module, it's in flash-able zip format. Thoroughly read the OP section of the XDA thread and follow the installation instructions correctly.

    Yes, I am using it for months now. No issues so far. You need to carefully follow the instructions. Especially the part where you have to rename a file inside the zip. Before flashing, make sure /system is mounted in recovery and you are good to go!
