How to Run Ubuntu on Your Vibrant

And we keep on going with this barrage of cross breeding devices and platforms that we have had lately.  This time, XDA member jzero88 brings forth this easy to follow tutorial to have a full Ubuntu version running on your Vibrant. Android devices are no strangers to running this OS and this device seems to not be the exception. The dev wrote up the tutorial with a very simple to follow step by step and provided all the files needed to make this guide a one-stop shop for all of you Ubuntu enthusiasts.

If you have any feedback regarding the guide itself, or maybe if you see any inaccuracies, make sure that you post them in the thread. Make sure that you follow the steps carefully since there is always a chance that you may end up ruining your device.

Ok, so for those who like to push the limits with their phones I don’t think it gets better then this 

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to making this possible. We had gotten a lot of good posts.

But a big thanks goes out to danielmid84, he provided me with the link http://nexusonehacks.net/nexus-one-h…us-oneandroid/ and a custom modified script to work with our phones, thank you!!

You can find more information in the guide 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...
