SSHake Your Way Into Other Devices With Honeycomb-Modified ConnectBot

Have you been longing for a Honeycomb-friendly SSH client for your shiny, new Honeycomb tablet? Never fear, as XDA forum member arctu has the solution with his Honeycomb-friendly modifications to ConnectBot.

Building off of the popular open source phone application by Kenny Root and Jeffrey Sharkey, this modification makes full use of both the fragments and ActionBar APIs. In the words of the developer:

Posted this on my Twitter (@ruqqq) yesterday. Not sure how many people use ConnectBot (like I do). But anyway, I took a whole day to learn Fragment API and decided to use ConnectBot as my “test subject”. Below is the result:

Features:

  • Standard ConnectBot features
  • ActionBar UI
  • Fragments UI

Known bug:

  • While a console is open, if you click the EditText on bottom right, the console will lose focus. When that happens, click the list item of the current console to regain focus.

Be sure to continue to the application thread to get some Honeycomb-friendly terminal action. The growing prevalence of apps that play nicely with Honeycomb sure makes now a better time than ever to be rocking an Android tablet!

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...
