    Default Question about rooting my m8

    Can I keep sense if I get my phone rooted? I really like sense but not the bloatware from AT&T.

    Absolutely. Would you like to take your phone to a dev edition. That's what I did. After flashing stock recovery and dev edition firmware you can also receive OTA updates. I came from stock AT&T and basically converted to a dev edition. Are you S-Off?

    Ok. Thanks for your reply. I'll read more about rooting before I do anything. I had a rooted my touch before but I didn't do the rooting.

    Yeah, no problem at all. XDA is a great resource if you're looking to get into rooting. I began 3 years ago with the HTC Inspire 4g and have rooted every phone since. Everything has gotten much easier as well.

    What benefits did you get from rooting? Besides being able to remove bloatware

    A few other things.
    #1-Sixaxis controller. I get to play my favorite android games with my ps3 controller.
    #2-SD card fix for KitKat. Huge time saver.
    #3-Recently I downloaded an app that allowed screen casting to a chromecast that requires root access.(this function will be supported in the future without root requirement)
    #4-Titanium BackUp. This has saved my app data quite a few times when I decided to try out a couple custom roms. Ultimately I just ended up sticking with the stock DevEd.
    #5-Orbot App. Enable transparent proxying for ultimate privacy.
    #6- I really like tinkering!!!!!!
    #7-and last but not least.........drum roll please...........UPDATES WITHIN 90 DAYS OF BEING RELEASED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*!!!!!**!!!!!!!!!***!!!!!!!!!

    Hahaha. Thanks for the info. What about battery life? Does rooting improve it?

    Rooting alone, no. But root access allows you to use apps like Greenify to help improve battery life.

    I've also found that the ElementalX kernel took my screen time to near nine hours when I had it flashed. I found it unnecessary because I put my phone on the charger every night anyway. I was also unable to receive OTA updates with the kernel flashed as well so I ditched it!
