Compile Android 4.2 for the At&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket

As many may have noticed, we here at XDA have spent quite a bit of time over the last couple of weeks talking about Android 4.2. It’s everywhere now, including the SDK and its release to the AOSP. So now comes the time when ROMs should start appearing. For AT&T Galaxy S II Skyrocket users, you could have one sooner than most.

XDA Senior Member sk8erwitskil released a tutorial that helps users compile the newly released revision of Jelly Bean. However, instead of making people start entirely from scratch, this tutorial is more of an add-on from the popular method to compile Android 4.1 for the Skyrocket. As sk8erwitskil explains:

Im in the process of compiling android 4.2 for the skyrocket right now. i wanted to share the changes i needed to make to get it to keep compiling.

With that said, the overall process isn’t complete yet. That means you can’t follow this and have a perfectly running ROM. However, it is fairly close to being completed, and members of the Skyrocket community have been helping figure out the problems and fixes. It shouldn’t be long before fully functional source-built Android 4.2 ROMs start churning out for the Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

For more details, or if you would like to help out, check out the original 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...
