Root and First ROM for the Nextbook Premium 7

Getting first root on some devices is quite a big deal—the kind of news that everyone hears about. However, first root of smaller and more obscure devices can sometimes escape the notice of even the most observant. Such is the case with the Nextbook Premium 7 tablet. XDA Forum Member Dochoppy has taken care of those who own the spunky little 7″ tablet by not only providing a root method, but also the first custom ROM that fixes a few of the short comings of the original tablet OS.

The root method is a little different, but involves the basic concepts of usual rooting. You basically connect the Nextbook 7 to your computer and install a few things from the computer. As usual, be very careful and be sure to follow the instructions exactly, as doing it wrong could end up doing some damage to the device.

The root process also installs one of the two custom ROMs. The features are very similar and include:

Complete and correctly working market. It now correctly associates the tablet to your gmail account allowing purchases from market.
Launcher 3.0 as well as Go launcher ex. Launcher 3.0 was pulled from an rk2918 firmware3.0 update and put into this rom.
Google Calendar is now back and working correctly.
Original Email is back and working correctly.
Included Kindle App
Included Estrongs file explorer.
Both have SU though the Cramfs version cannot write to SW.

Removed Apps Added in last release and return to more of a original rom state.

So for those Nextbook Premium 7 users who were looking for a way to play with their tablet, your time has arrived. Simply head on over to the original thread for additional information, the full method and all the download links.

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...
