Emoji Support in AOSP MMS App for US Galaxy S III

A while back, we brought you a small XML fix to let your Android device see Emoji characters. Emoji is pretty popular, and many people use them—especially on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. Now there is a way to get Emoji support on the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III.

XDA Senior Member amiblindyet has released an APK file that gives Sprint Galaxy S III owners Emoji support on the MMS app on AOSP-derived ROMs. This is not the first time such support has been given. However, now most common issues are fixed. This includes errors with portrait photos, force closes, and other miscellaneous errors. Some of the other features include:

[FIXED] MMS works
Increased MMS picture size
Dark theme with ICS blue to match AOKP, etc.
Emoji support

To install, simply download and flash the zip that amiblindyet has provided in custom recovery. It has been tested on AOKP Jelly Bean and CM10, and should work on any AOSP ROMs based on those. Given that the US variants of the Galaxy S III can share practically everything, expect this to work—or at least get ported—to the other three variants soon enough. In fact, this may even work on other devices running AOSP-derived Jelly Bean ROMs as well.

For additional details, 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...
