    After examining the GPU Driver Updater application, XDA developers figured out the distribution scheme for graphics drivers. The documentation says that the OEM gets an empty preliminary release of the APK file from Qualcomm. After that, it makes a number of changes to it based on its own firmware, adds new supported games, and changes the package name. Then each OEM manufacturer must deliver the update to its users.
