Re: HTC ONE S just rooted (newbie user here)
First thing is first.. I know rooting sounds nice and fun (which it is) unless you dont know what you are doing. It unlocks your phone not only to you (the user) but also others (third party apps) that can be malicious.
But what is done is done.
Rooting your phone means you are now able to change the OS and the initial ROM. in your case you are running stock Sense ROM at the moment. I would HIGHLY recommend you downloading and buying Titanium backup. You can back up apps/ data/ and even system information. You have to buy the unlock key so you can restore all your information.
Titanium Backup (TB) also allows you to delete whatever you want... including bloatware and System apps... (be very careful and dont delete something unless you can make a backup)
Also since you have not downloaded anything yet you can unroot the phone... Id recommend looking on XDA-Developers.com for more information. (I rooted my HTC one S and decided to unroot)
The rooting community does not like to put all that time into ROMS and apps to not get paid... So its going to be hard to find a quailty app without buying it.
If you continue to keep it rooted... Download a recovery from a developer Tool kit from XDA (that is free) and MAKE A BACKUP FIRST!!!!!!!!!!
If you feel comfortable you can start downloading different ROMs and be sure to READ ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS.... (downloading different ROMs will automatically get rid of most of the bloatware, only what the developer puts in the ROM)
Please be advised. Im not responsible for anything going wrong with your phone.
