Increased Sense 4 Multitasking and 16 Recent App Panels for EVO 4G LTE
We’ve brought you multitasking tweaks before. While most of them involve simply editing minfree values to a more desirable number, the main difference has been the ease of doing so. Until now, that is. A new multitasking tweak has been discovered specifically for Sense 4.0 and Sense 4.1 ROMs on the HTC EVO 4G LTE.
XDA Recognized Developer zeppelinrox found the first tweak for the Sense 4.0/4.1. And now, it doesn’t involve just minfree tweaks. Before the tweak, the app limit for Sense ROMs was a mere 8 applications. After the tweak, it can go as high as 50. If that’s too much, zeppelinrox suggets using one of the many methods to tweak minfrees to rectify the problem. The tradeoff is that a higher minfree value frees up more RAM, while a lower value allows for more multitasking.
Additionally, XDA Recognized Themer and Contributor steal25 created a mod to give users more recent app panels for the EVO 4G LTE. Given that there’s a new way to have even more apps open on Sense ROMs, it makes sense to make more panels available as well. Unfortunately, the tweak has to be done manually. This means decompiling the SystemUI.apk and making some edits manually. It probably won’t be long until ROM devs start using this mod in their work or a flashable zip is produced. Until then, best to brush up on your compiling and decompiling skills.
