Sony Ericsson handsets are known for great quality cameras for snapping pictures and recording HD videos. Apart from that, most of Sony Ericsson’s smartphones under the Xperia line also feature the exclusive Sony Bravia Reality Engine.
The Bravia Reality Engine is actually software that basically runs a post-processing engine that enhances the quality of pictures and videos that have been taken by the phone’s camera. Sony Ericsson may no longer hold that sense of exclusiveness, as the guys at XDA-Developers have managed to port the Bravia Reality Engine not just to the Xperia X10 but also to other Android devices, as well. This is certainly good news, as the Bravia Reality display has been reportedly known to bring true-to-life images in superb clarity.
First on the line to feature the Bravia Reality Engine port are lucky owners of the Nexus S. However, those using the Nexus S with Super AMOLED display won’t probably need this engine because the device’s Voodoo kernel already has an option for enhancing video and image quality. It’s a different story for users of the S-LCD model of the Nexus S. Such users may want to try the Bravia Reality Engine to improve the display on their handsets.
To be able to use the Bravia Reality Engine on your Nexus S (S-LCD variant), you need the following:
#Sony Bravia Engine Service
set_perm(0, 0, 0755, "/system/etc/be_movie");
set_perm(0, 0, 0755, "/system/etc/be_photo");
set_perm(0, 0, 0644, "/system/build.prop");
busybox chmod 0755 /system/etc/be_photo
busybox chmod 0755 /system/etc/be_movie
busybox chown 0.0 /system/etc/be_photo
busybox chown 0.0 /system/etc/be_movie
Congratulations! You have successfully installed the Bravia Reality Engine into your device.
