Paranoid Android Ported to More Devices

Recently, we brought you news of Paranoid Android being ported to the Sony Xperia Play. Well, we are happy to report that the list of ported devices is growing fast. For the uninitiated, Paranoid Android is a hybrid ROM that allows users to scale and project every app, every widget, even system components individually. As described in the Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean port by XDA Forum Member molesarecoming:

To be honest, this is not tablet mode at all, it has nothing to do with silly build.prop hacks. This is the first and only Android rom to feature true Hybrid mode. This rom lets you scale and project every app, every widget, even systemcomponents individually. Remember, android is modular, everything is an app: Lockscreen, navigationbar, dialogs, popups, keyboards, widgets, and your regular apps of course. Apps have the capability to switch into various designs or layouts according to the device they run on. This can result in a complete new experience as many apps will transform to the better.
Now for every element that you like chose a mode (PhoneUI, Phablet/Nexus-7UI, TabletUI) and/or a size. You are 100% independent of the system DPI which runs nicely in whatever value it has been assigned to. You do not need to boot your phone into a certain DPI. Neither will most of the changes you apply require a reboot. You will not suffer from the myriads of troubles which normally haunt you under build.prop tablet mode. Your market, phone, etc. will all work, apps won’t shrink on you unless you shrink them yourself. This project will entirely transform your device, but retain the aesthetics and the feel of your phone.

In addition to the Galaxy NexusT-Mobile LG G2x owners now can enjoy a port thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor tonyp. I personally own this device, so I can speak from experience that it is stable enough to be used as a daily driver. Check out the ROM thread for more information and download links.

Other devices that have received ports include the HTC EVO 4G and EVO 4G LTE thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor mazdarider23. To get in on the action, visit the HTC EVO 4G ROM thread and EVO 4G LTE ROM thread. The list is growing very fast and is already quite large, check this page out to see if your device has received a port yet.

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...
