    Default Samsung s5 root ideas?

    Basically this is my first time rooting. Just rooted my s5 with towelroot and installed supersu, titanium back up and rom toolbox pro.

    Basically I would love to have ideas, suggestions and your personal preferences on what root apps to download to really get the best out of my s5 and what settings and adjustments you made.

    Especially with titanium back up and rom toolbox root. I have no idea what to do and instead of playing around with it, I'd love your recommendations on everything that will help me benefit from rooting.

    Also what things should I delete that came with the s5 (bloatware). I'm assuming most of it is not needed but I'd really appreciate details and specific things to do from your own experience.

    Thank you.


    Additional information:
    I am also running nova launcher. Plus I'm a heavy user of this phone so battery life is very important but I also love speed and perfect performance so I need the right balance between the two

    Nova uses root access for a few things like to hide the clock.

    Easiest way to root is towelroot it's made by Geohot same person to unlock the iPhone for the first time I came from iPhone as well and jailbreaking and rooting aren't the same root just gives you access to the root user so you will be the admin and you can get rid of bloatware and install custom roms but in my opinion Cydia is way better lol but I still love Android hope this helped

    Xposed Framework will allow you to do tons of customizations. Also, in the Playstore, do a search for "root" and you'll find plenty of apps (and ideas). If you're not apposed to tripping your knox counter, you should also install a custom recovery so you can back the entire phone up.
