CobaltController: Use your PS3 Controller for Your Windows Phone!

This is a very cool new application made by XDA developer Cobaltikus. It lets you control your Windows Phone games by using your Playstation 3 controller.
Many games, mainly emulators, are capable of working with this new application, which connects your Sixaxis/Dual Shock 3 controller with your Windows Phone using Bluetooth HID.
Although it is still in beta stage, the developer even plans to add WiiMote support to the application, which would be even more awesome!

Use your Sony Playstation 3 Controller (Sixaxis/Dual Shock 3) as a Bluetooth HID device on your Windows Phone. It’s great for games, mainly emulators.
Tomorrow a friend is going to let me borrow his Wiimote for a while so I can add support for that controller as well.

Version 0.1 Available NOW!!!
I’m not done. but I’m done enough to use it. It’s stable and runs fine, but just limited in functionality relative to it’s capabilities. Nothing is configurable at the moment and there is no user interface.

So as we hear from the developer, it’s still in very early developing stage. No user interface, not very user friendly. But I think it’s already great to see what the developer has already managed to do!
Unfortunately, your phone needs to have a WidComm stack in order to get it running. This means that devices older than the Diamond2 probably will not work with it (Touch Pro confirmed to not be working). Luckily, the developer is working on getting the Microsoft stack to work too (will be released in v. 0.2).

The installation instructions are not straight forward, so I suggest that you read the first post very carefully before you proceed.
Please go to the application thread for download and more information!

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...
