    Default Just rooted my phone,now what?

    Just went through the process of rooting my first Android device, and wow the adrenaline is pumping now

    So my question is: what now?

    Any special apps I should try now or anything?

    In not quite ready to rom as yet, but would like to try some new things with my new powers

    Already did one thing: I now have the ics dock

    On my Samsung galaxy s3 running android 4.0

    Because unlike ios, i keep my apps in app drawers, and not in infinite cluttered homescreens

    well with a root it allows you to make you phone more customizable like you said with roms but you also can do things like download and use rooted required apps and if you ever have any problems check out this site they give you roms unroots roots all types of stuff for any carrier.

    No problem man. Glad it works well.

    I forgot a big one though... titanium back up

    Back up all your apps, data, and settings

    And root explorer so you can read your storage and edit files.

    Thanks but where exactly are these backups going? I've backed up apps before but can never find the file on my sd card

    Dont get rid of it forever just freeze or else if u unroot and need to bring it into sprint if u have a problem they will know u dont have some bloatware and not honor a warrenty replacement.

    Oh ok, thanks for the info.

    I assume that titanium backup pro is the only way to freeze an app? Or are there free apps that allow that as well

    Also :

    Can I still receive normal ota updates from sprint?

    How can I find my backed up apps on my sd card? I made backups but can never find them on my sd

    What is the importance of backups to a rooted non rommed user?

    Thx in advance

    I use titanium to freeze and u should still recieve ota updates as long as you dont flash a rom...i highly suggest tho to unroot before u update

    Also i dont backup unless im going to flash and im not the best with flashing so i dont know where u can find the backups i believe they should be under the titanium folder when u look at the contents of ur sd...or maybe ur saving it to ur internal card..not sure

    back ups save to a titanium back up folder on the sd card. I like it, it saves WiFi passwords or if you like a game you can save the data and start where you left off even if you break your phone and get another one. Your data is always saved for you.

    It's beneficial if an app you have isn't in the play store and you want to save it (like flash player isn't there but if you had it backed up you could easily put it back)

    As for ota updates I believe you'll be fine since you have no rom but Idk. SkunkApe talks about it in various threads in the Sprint section. So check those those out

    Oh ok, I didn't know I would be looking for a titanium folder, i always kept looking for the name of the app I backed up

    systemapp remover used to be free.
    yeah people are right, youre best to back up to ext sd with Titanium then delete them

    EDIT actualy would backing up non playstore apps (the bloat) and recovering them work?

    I havent rooted my gs3 so im unsure but i have rooted my other phones and was really easy to unroot...as far as ota updates i would unfreeze then unroot then perform the update just to be safe.

    as far as ive read, you get the updates but they remove root permissions so you gota root again.

    That doesn't seem bad at all, because rooting today was pretty simple after following a video, im sure I could pull it off again

    Hey guys, is titanium backup pro the only way to do a batch backup?

    Also, would it batch restore as well?
