How to enable 4x MSAA in OpenGL ES 2.0 Android apps & games?

I love to enable 4x MSAA in most of the 3D games that I play. Anti-Aliasing will make the games graphics look great. And the good news is that you can enable 4x MSAA in OpenGL ES 2.0 Android applications and games for free now. No Chainfire3D Pro driver is needed. However, here is the catch ~ you need to have at least Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and GPU hardware that support MSAA. NVIDIA Tegra 3 GPU does not support MSAA, so no luck on Google Nexus 7. But all Android devices which loaded with ARM Mali-400 MP GPU support it. Therefore, devices like Samsung Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 support MSAA.

How to undervolt Nexus 7?

Want to increase Google Nexus 7 battery life? Undervolt Nexus 7 NVIDIA Tegra 3 Super 4-PLUS-1 Quad Core CPU is one of the ways to do so. Besides Nexus 7 7″ HD WXGA IPS screen, Tegra 3 Quad Core CPU is another big battery eater. Undervolting helps to reduce Nexus 7 battery usage, and will make Nexus 7 cooler (generate less heat) too. Unlike underclock which may not be so efficient in performance / walt ratio. Undervolt surely will improve battery life because it maintains the overall performance speed while lower the battery usage. As usual, you need to install custom kernel for Nexus 7 in order to undervolt. Stock Nexus 7 kernel does not support it.

How to overclock Nexus 7?

Overclocking is the easiest way to improve overall performance on Google Nexus 7. NVIDIA Tegra 3 Super 4-PLUS-1 Quad Core CPU is clocked at 1.3 GHz by default on Nexus 7. However, you still can push its limit and improve overall Nexus 7 performance by overclock up to 1.7 GHz. Official Nexus 7 kernel does not support overclock feature. So you need to install custom kernel for Nexus 7 in order to overclock.

Note – overclock will reduce NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, GeForce GPU and other hardware components lifespan because it will overheat easily. Do it at your own risk.
