First Sense 4.1 ROM Hits CDMA EVO 3D

It’s always good to see newer software gets ported to older devices with enough functionality to actually use. It can add new life to older devices and make them more tolerable for at least a little bit longer. Now, the HTC EVO 3D has a working Sense 4.1 port, and it comes not long after the official update to Ice Cream Sandwich.

XDA Senior Member chubbzlou is credited for having created the original port of the Sense 4.1 ROM to the device. From there, XDA Senior Member gruesomewolf turned it into a mean, lean, and mostly functional ROM. So far, the ROM seems to be very stable and usable as a daily driver. There are, however, some issues that still need to be worked out. The current issues include:

-3D
-4G (duh!)
-Effect in Gallery will FC
– For data roaming to work the data roaming widget must be turned on.
-Camera will FC if you choose any option but auto (I will fix this asap)
-Choosing smooth options in tweaks will cause a sense fc

So yes, some kinks need to be worked out, but there’s nothing overly terrible or obtrusive. On the good side, there are a number of enhancements to boost performance, sound, and other parts of the ROM so users will have an overall decent experience.

If you’d like to know more, take a look at 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...
