Gingerbread SDK Released Earlier Today

People seem to be getting more and more anxious about the upcoming update for Android. The good people at Google have released the Gingerbread SDK for devs to start playing with it. Threads have erupted throughout XDA as people feel that XDA devs will get working roms for each device within hours of the announcement. There were even rumors earlier today that the Nexus One would be getting an OTA, but those turned out to be false. In either case, excitement is building up as devs have already started getting their hands dirty with this new OS. There were lots (and I do mean lots) of rumors surrounding this new installment, but many of these seem to be reserved for Honeycomb, which will be the next version of Android, rumored to be out sometime next year.

Some of the biggest devices (in terms of user base) already have major talks regarding this and ports will definitely start coming out once the leaks start rolling in. So, please be patient… there will be Gingerbread for all soon enough.

You can find discussions about Gingerbread herehere, and in several other places throughout the site.

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...
