Rhobuntu Updated to v9.04
The ‘Rhobuntu’ project, which works on porting the popular Ubuntu Linux distro to devices including the Touch Pro 1 and 2, the Diamond and similar devices, has recently been re-energised with a bunch of updates. The most important part of these updates is the Ubuntu update to version 9.04, making the project almost up-to-date with the latest stable release for full-sized machines.
In addition, the update makes establishing a WiFi connection much less hassle-free, while also reducing some of the bloatware found on earlier builds. Setting up a 3G internet connection is now also easier than ever, and the system as a whole is substantially faster.
Functionality varies between devices, and users of phones other than the Rhodium should find the Rhobuntu thread specific to their device in their own respective forums. Continue on to the original thread for the Rhodium for more information on this update.

Getting an upgrade is a big deal to us power users: it’s our little Android Christmas, where after a long time (for plenty of us, at least)...
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...
