First of all, read my post, where I made some modifications of OGRE v1.9 (rev. 7423) for TEGRA 3
Post: "No depth buffer attachments on FBOs on Nexus 7 (Tegra 3)?" ( ... 53#p519467)

My version with these modifications work well on many devices (!!!):
- LG x-145 (Mali400)
- HTC One X (Tegra3)
- some Samsung (maybe Adreno 225 :?: )
- some Lenovo
- some Chinese Android smartphone (maybe Mali400 :?: )
- etc...
But in this device - Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 (SM-T331) - does not work as expected!!! :cry:

I was most interested in an sample - Character.
Dear developers, please explain what is really happening or could happen.
I think the problem in the depth buffer.
Maybe if you run it without my modification (clean OGRE v1.9 (rev. 7423) ), it will work fine, but then you can forget about support for TEGRA3

My steps: (see screnshots)
1. Run OGRE
2. Choose and run a Character Sample
3. See "big black shadow" under the Ogre "Sinbad" character ( :cry: :cry: :cry: ):
4. Press "Home" button
5. Return to OGRE
6. See and enjoying good rendered shadow under character ( :D :D :D :D :D ) :

7. Stop Sample
8. Start Character Sample again, and see "big shadow" again ( :cry: :cry: :cry: ):

(Sorry for the Russian voices in the background :D)

NOTE: running my modification of Ogre v1.9 rev.7423 (Tegra3 fix)

My test VIDEO of HTC One X (GPU Tegra 3) and LG X145 (GPU Mali400) : (good & almost OK)

NOTE: running my modification of Ogre v1.9 rev.7423 (Tegra3 fix)
