Google introduced a revamped Recents interface with Lollipop in the hopes of making it easier for users to jump between tasks. But is Recents the best method of switching tasks? Let us know if you actually use the Recents button as a task switcher and why.
Just a brief announcement: Yesterday, we published our 4000th article on XDA Portal we want to thank all our readers and collaborators! Now, let´s go for another 40000!
Deep within the core of XDA, previous to the big bang when Android arrived, you can find a thread filled with valuable information regarding this piece of technology that we love so much. Essentially, you will find a full pictured guide explaining how to dismantle your beloved device.
You will find guides for devices as old as the glorious HTC Alpine, and as new as the HTC Incredible S. One could argue that the Incredible S is not the latest and you are right, but you have to think of all the work that was put on this valuable document and that only a few people are actually working to make the collection even bigger.
Here is where the super big community that we are comes into play, linking great minds around the globe, so if you are doing a similar work or think you can help, please contact XDA members lvsw and OyKC who are actively involved on making this thread grow.
We beg you to keep this thread clean and stay away from posting stuff like “Hey nice work!”.
Thanks for reading.
