Win a CuBox from Solid-Run

Today is Valentine’s Day! To all those celebrating, we at XDA would like to extend wishes for a day stuffed sappy heart-shaped objects, loved ones, and much mobile development.

Many of our more hardware-focused community members have heard of the Solid-Run CuBox computer. CuBox is a small, fan-less computer measuring in at approximately 2 × 2 × 2 inches. It comes with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed, but the device also supports Debian and Android, among others. It is a low-power ARM-based computer that can stream and decode 1080p content, use desktop-class interfaces such as KDE or GNOME under Linux, and do all of this in under 3 watts, with less than 1 watt standby consumption. Those interested can learn more on the CuBox product page.

In order to help promote development for the device, Solid-Run is looking to give away 3 CuBox units to Recognized Developers who come up with interesting and unique development ideas for the device.

How do I win a free Solid-Run Cubox?

Simple. First, visit the contest thread! Next, tell us what you intend on doing with the device if you are one of the lucky winners. Share with us your development ideas, provide ample details, and remember to keep things feasible. Winners will be determined by myself and XDA Elite Recognized Adam Outler.

Now for the technicalities: This contest will run from today, February 14, until next Thursday, February 21. Due to previous difficulties we’ve encountered when mailing internationally, this contest will be open to US residents (or those with proxy US shipping addresses) only. Please only submit one entry per Recognized Developer. Those with multiple entries will be immediately disqualified.

Thank you for your contest entries and for being a part of the development community! Good luck!

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...
