A New Android Communications Library: JDroidLib Java

Over a year ago, we talked about AndroidLib, the .NET assembly library written in C# that easily handles communication between a connected Android device and your program. It’s a great and innovative project, but it is unfortunately limited to Windows systems, as .NET works only with C#, F#, Visual C++, Visual Basic, Visual C++, and Visual C++, rather than the cross-platform Java.

Inspired by the AndroidLib idea, XDA Senior Member Beatsleigher started a project to rewrite the project in Java. The idea is simple. This project can now be used with Unix-like systems such as Linux or MacOS. So far, this projects allows users to easily install ADB on every supported platform. The same thing can be done with fastboot. It can ease the efforts for some less tech-savvy users, as installing ADB and fastboot manually isn’t exactly the easiest task. The developer plans to add tons of handy features, and we wish him good luck with the project.

The binary is not distributed, but it can be compiled from source. More information regarding project can be found in the original thread, so make your way there and give it a try.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
