Prevent Windows Phone 7 from Relocking when connecting to Zune

If you have an HD2 or any other HTC device running Windows Phone 7 unlocked via Chevron or Cotulla ROM, this may be of your interest. XDA member thesecondsfade posted a nice guide on how to prevent your device from being relocked every time you connect with Zune software. This easy guide includes links to download the applications/fixes you need to make it work. Be sure to know what are you doing as this will void your warranty. Some members reported working and others had some problems, so please leave feedback whether it´s working or not.
Important note: Only working on HTC devices.

[HTC] Prevent WP7 from Relocking

This is discussed elsewhere, but deep within other threads, so I wanted to give it it’s own thread to help people in finding out how to prevent Zune from relocking WP7 devices. It only works on HTC devices for now because TouchXplorer only works for HTC devices.

  1. Install TouchXplorer
  2. Install HTC Connection Setup
  3. Download and extract this zip file to your PC.
  4. Deploy the extracted XAP to your device
  5. On your device, using TouchXplorer, copy \My Documents\My Ringtones\CustClear.provxml to \Windows\

Continue to 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...
