    Thats not true! Your friend should not be giving advice when he doesnt know what hes talking about.

    I develop and use root apps on a daily basis. 90% of trhe time they are better built than any other kind of app, simply because the kind of people who understand android tend to write better code.

    I finally took the plunge and rooted last night. I had an option while in superuser or revolutionary to do a back up (which I did) and which I think I found in a folder named clockwork mod on my sd card and copied that to my PC. Is that the nandroid backup? If not, what is a nandroid backup.

    While I am at it .... can Rom manager really do everything right from there to flash say, cyanogen? Anbd when I click "wipe " does it wipe the SD card too? Thanks in advance ......

    Tasker - Too powerful for words. Can automate nearly anything you think of on your phone in nearly any way. Can also automate things you can't think of.

    Screen Filter - Dims the screen to however low you want it. Perfect for late at night. Has a Tasker plug-in so you can set it to run at specific times

    Keyboard Backlight Controller - Turns hard key backlights on or off. Can be set to run at startup. I really like it because at this point in my phone's life, I know exactly where the keys are, and for some reason do not like the backlight. Especially at night.

    Combine all 3 of the above apps, and you just might be able to look at your phone in bed without it killing your eyes

    One of the most fun root programs I like to play with (yes I said play with! ) is Boot RANDImations, because you've got over 130 boot animations to choose from, you can even add your own! The beauty of this app is it randomly displays the animations that you have chosen, its real easy to add your own custom sounds or recordings in mp3 format by putting them in the same folder labeled as android_sound.mp3. Its just plain old fun to run this root app.
    Do you have a link to this app? I looked in the market but did not see it.

    Hi,

    here's a couple I use on a regular basis

    Total Commander for android http://ghisler.ch/board/viewforum.php?f=22
    a fine alternative to root explorer

    LBE Privacy Guard
    https://market.android.com/details?i....security.lite
    It's good to see what my apps are up to and block them if I don't like what they are doing. Now all I need to do is get LBE to report on itself!

    If your running stock rooted GB and want to take the new upcoming .621 GB update without losing your precious .su capabilities, then this app is for you(as long as the Market says so)....

    Voodoo OTA Root Keeper

    https://market.android.com/details?i...b3RrZWVwZXIiXQ..

    Some folks on the soak update for .621 have confirmed this works when used properly. I just can't find that certain forum at the moment. I am tired. But the rest of this post I assure is accurate lol
    Yea, I'm still rockin' a Gnex. The signal strength/quality sucks, but hey, it's not two years old yet.

    I used to use shootme. I can't find it now on the market. I also used Drocap2. Try that one. Or get a nexus and just hold down power and volume down

    Yeah, I checked out drocap2 and a lot were complaining about how that when it takes a picture, the "has been granted superuser permissions" notification always shows up in it. I ended up trying it out and got the same result.

    Any other suggestions guys?

    GMD GestureControl - iPad like gestures, just much more flexible. You can create your own gestures, execute Home, Back, etc, start any application or shortcut. Also has some unique actions like recent applications bar on the bottom, launch pad (docked to border or in center), keyboard switcher, media control, etc.
