CM7 for Samsung Epic 4G now with WiMAX
A constant plague on Sprint users who want their ROM cake and eat it too is whether or not the ROM supports WiMAX. Now, mere days after the CyanogenMod 7 XDA forum for the Samsung Epic 4G became a reality, WiMAX is now a part of the package.
Forum Member UberPinguin updated the Epic 4G forum post earlier today with all of the details for RC0 of CyanogenMod 7.2.0 for the Epic 4G. For those unfamiliar with CyanogenMod, this ROM does not contain Samsung’s infamous TouchWiz UI, and is instead now an AOSP UI.
All of the usual warnings apply, especially considering this is a RC0 ROM. WiMax works, but the toggle widget to turn it on and off does not, and native tethering doesn’t work with WiMAX. Head on over to the forum post for installation instructions and the full buglist and changelog.
As always, happy flashing.

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...
