CHT 2.0 Widgets by ZaxXx Finalized and Awaiting Release.

Not too long ago, we saw the release of Cookie’s Home Tab 2.0, which among the multitude of options, improvements, fixes, and more, also came with the option of adding custom widgets to the already feature rich UI addon. XDA member ZaxXx has started development for this and just finished the first version of his first widget, which is a calculator. Those of you who use HTC widgets in your Android devices will agree that having the calculator in the home screen can indeed be quite useful.

Due to some technical knowledge in cab generation, the dev is yet to be able to release this widget. So, if you know a way to help the dev create the cab for easy installation of this widget, drop by the thread and give the dev a hand. This way, the next widgets will be released much faster than this as he will not be running into such issues.

Hi all,

I’m a huge CHT fan and I’m very interested in creating custom widgets. There’s very little informations about widgets development, but after hours of playing with sources and restarting Sense many times, I’ve finally created a simple (but working) calculator widget.

Unfortunately, I have some problems with creating a CAB, I don’t know which tool to use (they all seem too complicated for my needs), I don’t know what to do with the setup.dll file and I don’t know if the .mode9 file needs to be renamed to something unique. Therefore there’s still no release from me, but I hope some CHT developer will give me some hints as Co0kieMonster is not responding to my PMs (he seems to be really busy as I’m waiting for a reply for more than week). I’ll release the calculator widget as soon as I get enough info about how to create a CAB properly!

You can find more information in the widget 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...
