Make Your Transformer Prime Home Screens Look Like Xbox 360

With the Asus Transformer getting a little home screen love, it was only a matter of time before someone would figure out an awesome way to modify the home screens of its younger brother, the Asus Transformer Prime. Since tablets bridge that gap between mobile devices and computers, their screen size is ideal for not only mobile operating systems like Android, but they can also be skinned effectively with UI’s designed for full sized TVs or computer monitors. An example of this would be the Xbox 360 Dashboard.

The example is not a coincidence, as Transformer Prime users can now make their tablets look and feel like the Xbox 360 Dashboard. XDA Forum Member Charlos_OOO has written up a very nice tutorial with a list of all the software required to make the Transformer Prime look very much like the popular gaming console. To be frank, this process takes some time so don’t start if you have pressing engagements in the near future. The software list required to make this all work is quite long as well. According to Charlos_OOO, you’ll need at least:

ADWLauncher EX
DesktopVisualizer
DesktopVisualizer ImageCrop (Trial)
Multipicture-LiveWallpaper
FolderOrganizer (light) … to get a text-style app-launcher-Pop-up
A 2D-graphics-tool of your Choice

From here comes one of the longest three step processes on XDA, which each step being broken down into many sub-steps. Don’t be alarmed, however, as Charlos_OOO has written out the instructions beautifully so even those who aren’t as Android savvy can understand them. It just takes a long time.

Additionally, Charlos_OOO has put up a few pieces of opinionated information for discussion, such as the ideal Android launcher that would improve over all the current Android launchers. While not a part of the tutorial, it is an interesting set of fun and awesome features that were suggested.

More information, the full process, screen shots, and more can be found in 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...
