Xoom WiFi Only 3.1 Update – Flashable, No Wipe Necessary, External Storage Enabled
If you’re the owner of the WiFi US Xoom, you’ll be pleased to know that XDA forum member publicanimal has put together a flashable, no wipe, external storage enabled update file for the 3.1 Honeycomb update.
The XDA member has incorporated a modified version of stachre’s updater-script into the official WiFi 3.1 update from Google. Also added was the kernel and all of the files from bigrushdog’s HC3.1 zip, except for the system.img file, meaning that the the WiFi only software gets installed on your WiFi only Xoom.

If you want to find out more and to download the file, head on over to the forum thread.

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...
