Independently Updated Draw9Patch Offers New Features for Themers

This is the quintessential XDA experience story. Someone comes onto the site looking for something they need. They make a thread about it and find out that others need it too. Then, one day out of nowhere, someone comes in and says, “Hey, I got that, here you go.”

This is the story of XDA Senior Member raider3bravo . Last month he posted that he would really like a new Draw9Patch that was updated with a few new features to make it a little less time consuming for themers.

Almost a month later on the nose, XDA Member Elex_kr brings that want to a reality with an updated Draw9Patch with the features that raider3bravo wanted.

In the link above, you can go check out the original thread. The original post has been updated to show that the program has been released. Elex_kr’s new Draw9Patch program can be found in the 11th post .

The thread is now dedicated to the testing and bug fixing of the improved app so if you are a themer and want to check it out, someone who wants to help with finding or fixing bugs or even a beginner who wants to get the latest software to learn on, the thread features everything from download of the new Draw9Patch to a quick, but effective tutorial on theming for beginners by raider3bravo. The only thing the thread doesn’t have is the lottery numbers for this week (drat!).

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...
