You can download the PowerVR SDK for Android on the Imagination Technologies website. I don't know how to create drivers from them.

Sorry to bump this pretty old thread cuz I had a peek at the OpeniBoot's working status table and found GPU project is almost blank which really made me sad.
I'm a newbie here so maybe do not know how hard to port the GPU driver, but I have something in my mind and  if you guys could accept it maybe it's an idea.

Humm....as I know Apple's A4 and A5 are from samsung, which has the similar core with samsung's own chip S5PC100( or S5PC110 ),  they all based upon 'Hummingbird', so it' pretty clear now, is it possible to grab the GPU driver from those devices using samsung's chip, like for example Samsung i9000 Galaxy S or Google Nexus S ? is it gonna work ?

Dunno... I'm not familiar with the Galaxy S or Nexus S hardware components.

But if they are running PowerVR MBX (for iPhones 2G, 3G and iPod Touch 1G) or PowerVR SGX 535 (newer devices) then that would be most helpful...

They are SGX, which is what is in the A4's & 3GS, we suspect that we can use the drivers, but wont know for sure until we get that far

You dont need to reverse anything for the SGX, the stuff we need already exists for that

The  SGX is for the newer devices such as iPhone 4, 3GS etc.

The iPhone 3G uses the MBX... this needs reversing.
