Sense Haters…. CM7 Arrives For The Sensation

If there is one thing that is real about Android is that there is enough variation to please most people out there. Some people just flat out refuse to use Sense in their devices and prefer lighter roms such as AOSP. As many of you know, the most famous one in this category is CyanogenMod, which works with a wide variety of devices. Thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer persiansown, the HTC Sensation has been added to this ever growing list of devices. The rom is still in initial stages but it is quite usable according to the dev. There are, however, some bugs which could potentially put some people off from it until the bugs are fixed.

Please ensure that you have a rooted device and that you read the entire OP to avoid any potential difficulties. Last but not least, please leave some feedback for the dev just in case you run into bugs.

The current buglist:
-Recording 1080p video for a couple minutes causes a soft reboot

-Misc minor scaling issues
-Skype requires a speaker toggle for audio to work correctly
-Small issue where wifi calling FCs on boot for EU Sensations. This will be fixed.
-Bluetooth headset is untested because no one on the team has one. I don’t know if it is a bug or not.

You can find more information in 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...
