Stericson Presents the Root Tools Library for Root App Dev

We’ve already talked about four great app development presentations, including Ubuntu Touch development from XDA:DevCon 2013. However, the presentations from Mark Murphy, Daniel Nazer, Ariel Shimoni and Michael Hall were not the only app development presentation at XDA:DevCon 2013, and this one is especially close to XDA’s heart.

The presentation was given by XDA Elite Recognized Developer Stericson. Being involved in the Android community since the pre-release of the T-Mobile G1, He started out learning how to create themes for Android. Stericson developed Android applications and the RootTools library to assist others with creating applications for root users. These were discussed in his presentation “Root Application Development with the RootTools Library.” As a developer, creating root applications for rooted users becomes extremely trivial with the RootTools open source library. Stericson focused on how to use the RootTools Library in order to create root applications that your users will love and appreciate.

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...
