First AOSP ICS for Thunderbolt With Working Data Released

Getting AOSP working on a device is always a big deal. In fact, we we mention AOSP-based ROMs quite frequently on the Portal. It’s vanilla Android at its finest and many users prefer it to Android that’s been flavored by OEMs. Now, the HTC Thunderbolt has some AOSP ICS goodness, and this time you can even use data!

For Thunderbolt owners, data has been the big struggle with AOSP ports and, it is finally over. XDA Senior Member [SP]JESTER, along with some others, have released an Ice Cream Sandwich AOSP ROM with data, call signal, and MMS all working. This makes it the first ICS AOSP ROM on the Thunderbolt to have working data.

The ROM itself seems to be very close to being in perfect running condition. Here is a list of the only things left that are wrong with it:

Video Camera still Broke
Netflix is dead
Wifi Tether may be broke for now, Use the Internal version in settings

So unless you like to video record things, are addicted to Netflix, or use your phone as your WiFi router, this is almost certainly daily driver material. For additional details, head to 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...
