HTC Desire HD Firmware Downgrade Guide

When HTC released their 1.72.405.3 OTA update for the HTC Desire HD, it could not be rooted and many people got stuck with the stock ROM. Now, thanks to XDA member CuBz90 we have a downgrade method. After this process, you can use any root (+ S-OFF) method you want, your device will be just like any other Desire HD with older build version. Downgrading will completely reset your device to factory defaults, so remember to back up.
The whole process is delicate, so be sure to know what you are doing before proceeding.

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.
