Presenting XDA-University

You may recall a while back that we mentioned a new project we’ve been working on behind the scenes here – XDA-University. We’re proud to announce that the first version of XDA-U is now available at XDA-University.com.

We listened to your feedback, in that you wanted it to be easier to get started with development, and learn more about how to make your own ROMs, kernels, and other tweaks for your phone. As such, we set about getting some of our users (to whom we are incredibly grateful) to share some of their knowledge about Android development. While they’ve tried to make this as easy as possible to get going with, we’re sure you will still have questions, so we have also opened an XDA-University forum where you can ask any questions you may have, and get help.

The key thing about XDA-U is that it’s never going to be finished! If you’re a developer, or someone who wants to get involved in helping more people to learn about Android, and getting the chains off their device, we’d love to hear from you – please don’t hesitate to get involved!

Finally, we’d like to extend our thanks to everyone who was involved in getting XDA-U to where it is today. We’d also like to thank everyone who gets involved in future as well, and helps to make XDA-University even more useful for everyone to learn from!

Want something on the XDA Portal? Send us a tip!

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...
