Vivante GPU Profiling on i.MX6 Quad+

I'm trying to measure the application performance on i.MX6 Quad Plus SoC with Vivante GPU. 


From the NXP website, found the toolsuite provided by vivante for profiling the GPU operations for an specific application. I'm using the Boundarydevices board running Ubuntu 14.0.4. 


I'm not able to enable the profiling options with my i.MX6 board. My unfortunate thing is, I'm not having the kernel re-compilation option for my board. I understand without re-compiling the kernel, I cannot enable the profiling options. 


I tried recompyling the kernel with the steps provided in the Vivante tool, but its not helping me. 


Is there any profiling tools available which doesnt require me to recompile the kernel? Any suggestion on simple tools would be helpful. 


In other end, if you know the steps to enable the profile options would help me a lot. 


Any inputs on the profiling would help me.
