Add a Taste of Carbonite to Your CyanogenMod 7
In case you haven’t noticed, here at XDA-Developers, we like hacking and modifying our devices. A big part of this, which many often look past while installing countless ROMs and kernels, is that we appreciate customizing the appearance of our devices as well. Sure performance improvements can be seen in benchmarks and frame rates in games, but even dramatic performance gains are often quite subtle compared to basic themes.
Luckily, there is no shortage of theme creators in our community. XDA forum member Trock79 has taken it upon himself to create a highly integrated theme with a blue carbon fiber motif. The aesthetic certainly won’t appeal to everyone, but that’s the beauty of it. It’s daring, and those who like it almost undoubtedly love it. This theme, while originally created for the Google Nexus One, works with the CyanogenMod / T-Mobile Theme Chooser application, and should work with any WVGA device.

Getting an upgrade is a big deal to us power users: it’s our little Android Christmas, where after a long time (for plenty of us, at least)...
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...
