i.MX7 Android Browser

I am testing android on the i.mx7 sabresd platform. The built-in browser is not built when building for sabresd_7d-eng. I noticed that one of the patches excludes the browser because it relies on OpenGL, and the i.mx7d does not have OGL support (or a GPU). I have removed the check in packages/apps/Browser/Android.mk, and was able to include the browser in my build.

 

The browser unfortunately crashes with the error :

"chromium: [FATAL:gl_surface_android.cc(58)] Check failed: kGLImplementationNone != GetGLImplementation() (0 vs. 0)"

 

Is there a way to include a OGL software renderer on android? I realize that without a GPU, this could be painfully slow performance wise.

 

Thanks,

Ryan
