Lollipop’s memory leak has been plaguing Nexus users since Android 5.0 was released late last year, and despite several updates since then, Google has failed to fix it. Fortunately, third-party developers have stepped in with a patch.

The tweak is intended for devices running AOSP ROMs based on Android 5.0 and up, and it’s available on rooted devices running the Xposed framework.

The nasty memory leak that has plagued Lollipop since the platform’s debut last fall is still lingering in the latest Android 5.1 release, according to some reports, but Google says it already has a fix for it.

The only problem is, it doesn’t yet know when it will be available to the public.

Yay!

Yay!

Google Messenger, the default SMS client for Nexus users and those with pure Android operating systems, now supports animated GIFs, allowing you to send awesome images like the one above to your friends. It also just got a great new widget.

The Nexus 6 isn’t even half a year old yet, but already the rumor mill has begun turning its attention to its successor. Sources in China claim that Google has chosen a local manufacturer to build one variant of its next smartphone, and it seems Huawei best fits the bill.
