MantaMod is an intermediary graphics driver for your android device that sits between your game application and your device's graphics driver. By dynamically operating on the graphics stream to insert, change, or enhance graphics, you can control your game's graphics as desired.
What You Can Do With MantaMod
- Enable a Free-Camera view perspective independent of the player view
- Play games in Stereoscopic 3D on your 3D TV
- Mod Textures
This MantaMod app allows you to easily install or uninstall the MantaMod driver as well as drivers for supported game via a single button.
Screenshots here show the 'free camera' view perspective with two games, 'Fast and Furious 6', and '300: Rise of an Empire'.

What to do if this soft-bricks your device:
Given the highly varied nature of android devices out there, there is a chance that your device may not be fully compatible with the MantaMod driver yet. If so, you may see your boot screen looping over endlessly after the reboot. This is due to the OS attempting to load the MantaMod driver repeatedly. If this happens, you can easily revert back to your original graphics driver via running the following commands from your PC. (This assumes you are familiar with the adb tool):
- adb shell
- cd /system/lib/egl/
- mv egl.cfg.mybackup egl.cfg
And that should be it; after running these three commands, if your device is still looping in the boot screen, you should see it recover right away.
We will appreciate if you can drop us a note at [email protected]
, letting us know your device model and OS version. If you can also send us an 'adb logcat' dump that will help alot. We'll be sure to investigate further and build in support for it in subsequent app updates.
