AcDisplay Update Brings Fixes and Less Motorolish Look

Under Google’s influence, Motorola did a great job with their recent devices. Both the Moto X and Moto G are great options in their respective price points. The Moto X has no notification LED, so they developed Active Display to bring the notifications to the OLED panel. This feature then found itself ported to some well known ROMs like Chameleon OS and OmniROM. There are also applications available that ran with the idea and made it even better.

Back in February, we talked about AcDisplay by XDA Recognized Developer AChep. Since then, the project changed a lot (mostly due to Motorola’s interference) and a few new features was introduced. The list of improvements includes the ability to set a wallpaper rather than just a solid black background. There are also some minor fixes, updated translations, and compatibility with Xposed Framework. Also, users will no longer receive notifications from Android when entering KitKat Immersive Mode while using AcDisplay.

The application is distributed in two ways. The stable branch is available in Play Store, and the beta is hosted here on XDA. If you want to try out some active notifications on your KitKat-powered device, you should consider visiting the application thread and giving a new version of AcDisplay a shot.

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...
