TF300T Gets First Custom ICS ROM Courtesy of CM9

It was bound to happen sooner or later. With the Asus release of the unlocker tool for the TF300T, everyone could probably guess that development on the modest, yet still awesome tablet would start picking up, as developers now have no obstacles blocking their path. And now thanks to the official release of experimental CyanogenMod 9 builds, Asus Transformer TF300T owners now have access to the popular AOSP-derived, multi-device aftermarket firmware.

XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD of Team Hacksung has released an experimental build of the popular ROM for users to try out. And frankly, for a ROM labeled as experimental, it’s surprisingly functional and doesn’t have a lot broken.

Currently, at least as of experimental build number 2, the worst users can expect is that MTP is broken. This means you cannot place files from the device onto the computer, although the developer will note that users can apparently still transfer files from their PC to the device. This is, of course, a big improvement over the first build, which had camera and WiFi issues. However, these issues were fixed in build 2, so they are a thing of the past. With no indication that anything else is broken, users who can live without MTP might as well call it a daily driver, as it appears to be pretty stable for such an early release.

To get started, head over to 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...
