Battery Icon Mod Just Released for Android

Yesterday, we published an article of some custom battery mods for the Epic that were being prepared by XDA moderator theimpaler747. XDA member appelflap has decided to team up with impaler747 and are working together in a one stop shop for battery mods… for as many devices as possible. The app seems to be rather simple to use with a very simple UI. Needless to say that if you are not that into heavy modding and hacking, this will give you a tool to change the look on your device easily.

The app currently supports the Epic and the Galaxy S and it is rom specific, meaning that you have to make sure the mod you are applying is for the rom that you currently have. The dev is working towards making this more universal, so if you have any tips or would like to help out, make sure that you drop a post or a pm for the dev.

(Joint project by me and theimpaler747)

Battery Icon Mod is a general app for turning the standard battery icon into something more useful and more sophisticated.

The (ambitious) goal is to serve mods with this app for as many devices as possible. Right now, only the Galaxy S and Epic (thanks theimpaler747) are supported.

You can find more information in the application thread.

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...
