So I have started from the ground up on the resolution switching. There is now no need for x11, this removes the overheads. Currently it’s in early stages.
This will be compatable with all distros, including Lakka. I am sending data directly to the firmware (VCHIQ).
Here is a short teaser of it running, the resolution for the menu switches to 1920x240@60.
@hunterk I am using an old biuld for testing. It seems that the menu options for CRTSwitchRes have been removed for arm in the latest build (1.7.5). Can you confirm this.
