9 Things to do After Rooting your Android Phones
Following are the things to do after you reboot your phone-
1. Checking if Root is Successful
Before you proceed, the very first thing you need to do is cross-checking if the phone is rooted properly or not. If you have rooted your phone on your own you need to do all the required testing in order to avoid further consequences.
There are many android applications in the Google Play Store helping you to find that out. Root Checker is a popular application that can be used for this. Once you are sure that you have successfully rooted your phone you can go ahead with the next things otherwise you need to work on the rooting again.
Android manufacturers ship the devices with Google’s recovery environment i.e.“ stock recovery.” CWM is an abbreviation for Clock Works Mod Recovery. This recovery is a custom restoration, and it replaces the stock recovery when you root the device. This makes your life easy by allowing you to do many tasks, like a flash installs right from the phone itself, without having to use some fancy PC Tools. Moreover, it cleans and maintains the cache and allows managing NAndroid Backups.
3. Backup Data
Backup of Applications data, media, messages, contacts can be easily stored using a memory card, or you can take cloud back up as well! Since you have rooted your device, system data like app data can be available. An application named Titanium backup can be used to backup your applications. This app can also help in removing bloatware, all of the extra software applications that come pre-installed on your Android.
4. Flash Custom ROMs
When you root a device, you are free to install a custom ROM, which is famously known as ‘Flashing the Custom ROM.’ That is one of the major reasons to root the device. Android OS runs on top of the instructions given in the Android ROM.
Flashing enables several features like changing the boring user interface, getting new Android updates before their official release. With such a great flexibility comes an important responsibility. You should find a stable bug free ROM. A ROM full of bugs might mess up your entire device.
5. Increase RAM of your Phone
Once you root the device, increasing the RAM of your phone is just around the corner. Rooting Android device is highly recommended for slow Android phones. Once you increase the RAM, your phone breathes new life. You can increase your phone’s RAM using various methods like using different applications and partition of RAM. The partition can help you expedite your phone’s functionality and its overall working.
6. Privacy Protection
After rooting, a user has all the freedom to install unknown apps and programs. This exposes the user to the leakage of private information and resulting in a high-level security breach. Thus it’s important for device owners to protect their data like the messages, contact list, emails and applications data. Application to protect privacy: PDroid Privacy Protection.
7. Install Incompatible Applications
Those incompatible and unreachable applications, once you just wished, could be installed on your device, can be easily installed and run seamlessly on your phone post rebooting. Quick Reboot is a recommended application that will fix weak sauce by allowing you to boot to recovery, and boot to bootloader. It is simple and quickly makes finding an advanced power menu for your device a little bit less of a priority.
8. Play HD Games
Rooting a device is a boon for the hardcore gamers out there. Now you could enjoy those HD, heavy games on your low-end smartphone after you root it. Just a few taps and swipes and you are all set with your favorite game, which you had once dreamt of.
9. Increase Internal Memory
Imagine those early Android phones, which had the internal memory as little as 300 MB and that frustration you would have got after looking at that message which says ‘Not Enough Space.’
Well, rooting is the key to that problem. As you root your phone, you can free up the memory by removing annoying bloatware that you would have got. Thus, you can best utilize the internal memory and installed as many apps, as you can.
You feel like a Ninja with some subtle skills after rooting your device, as you can turn and twist the capabilities of the whole Android OS and the device that you have.
