TWRP 2.1 Touch Recovery Now Available for Aconia A100

With Team Win updating their new recovery to include a touch interface and new features to what has been dubbed TWRP 2, developers for devices that weren’t initially supported have been working on making the new touch recovery a part of their device’s repertoire. While most haven’t received the touch enabled awesomeness just yet, those carrying the Acer Iconia A100 have, and they can flash it immediately.

XDA Senior Member ZeroNull has ported the now popular touch recovery to the Iconia A100, which makes it the second Iconia tablet to receive the touch recovery after its cousin, the A500. The recovery, which is actually based on the A500 version, is relatively easy to install. However, users do have to be running certain firmware first. Says ZeroNull:

Before anything make sure you have the latest ICS leak C/O Vache, Root, and Unlocked Bootloader.

So if you don’t fulfill those requirements, you should steer clear of this for right now, as it’ll probably won’t work. For those who meet the prerequisites, the installation instructions are a cakewalk. Simply download the included package, unzip and run the install.bat executable file on a Windows PC, and wait for everything to settle down. Once it does, you’ll have TWRP 2 on your A100.

For additional info, the full instructions, download links and more, hit up the original thread. Touch enabled recovery for the win.

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...
