Windows 95 Emulation on Himalaya – Done!

Over the years we have seen emulation of many different computer operating systems running in our devices. This time, it is the turn of the Himalaya to shine. Thanks to xda member aeroflyluby, this five year old device just got a taste of a new operating system running on it, showing that because a device is old, doesn’t mean its useless. There have been many projects ranging from running Windows 95 all the way to Windows XP and even Vista (that is without accounting for the Ubuntu emulation running on the Rhodium), but QEMU seems to be far easier to run. The only requirement that you will need is an image of Windows 95, which you will not find in this site (so don’t ask ;)).

No NYDIOT REQUIRED! NO OTHER CABS 

I found somewhere QEMU compiled to windows mobile, and it works well!
You must find somewhere windows 95 (or something else) qemu image and put it in emul/96 folder, then edit cmdline in emul/96 to change name of image 
I can’t provide you working windows 95 copy because of warez.

You can follow the rest of the guide in 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...
