Tweak WM6.5.x Start Menu Easily With JWMD Armids

Many chefs know how hard it is to please the crowds, particularly with the small details. Number of columns in the start menu or WM roms is a big one. Many people like to have big icons in their Start Menu and really don’t mind the scrolling, while others would like to have all (or at least as many) possible shortcuts upon going into said menu. To make chef’s lives easier, XDA member Nullstring brings us yet another app of his infamous series JWMD. Armids 1.0a enables the end user to easily change many things in the graphical appearance of the Start Menu in WM 6.5 and above. There are several options that include changing the number of columns, change text under the icons, and even modify the background used in the Start Menu.

The app is still in early stages, but the dev promises to add extra features soon, such as Landscape support. This is not resolution specific, so it will work on most devices.

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...
