Things to do after Rooting your Android Smartphone

Check Root:

Yes, this is definitely the first, in case you have actually rooted your Android Smartphone. So in the things you need to do after you root your smartphone, the first one is, make sure that you have actually rooted your Android Smartphone. You can do that by a number of ways, there are plenty of root checker apps that available in the Play Store.

Install CWM :

CWM is abbreviated form of Clockworksmod Recovery. Now this recovery is a custom recovery and it would replace the stock recovery that is pre-installed on your Android Device. A Custom Recovery would allow you do various tasks and really make your life simple. It allows you to flash “Zips” right from the phone itself, there would be no need to use a PC Tool to do that in case. Wipe and manage cache partitions and also it allows to manage NAndroid Backups. So installing a CWM recovery on your Android Smartphone stands second, in the list of things to do after you root your Android Smaertphone.

Flash Custom ROMs:

Being able to install and flash custom ROMs is one of the biggest reason that today so many people are rooting their Android Smartphones. Why stick to the old and monotonous interface of the device, when you can get much more interactive looks as well as much more great tweaks with custom ROMs. You can flash custom ROMs and just sit back and enjoy the interface on your Android Smartphone. Actually that is one of the most entertaining advantage of rooting an Andriod Smartphone.

Play HD Games:

Yes no matter what handset you got, when you root your device, there are many advantages and things to do with android after rooting, it and one of them is enjoy HD and heavy games on your Android device, even if it low end smartphone. By rooting you can play some heavy games on your android smartphone even if you smartphone did not support them before you rooted it.

Increase RAM of Android Device:

Yes with Android Smartphone you can do a number of tweaks, and one of them is you can increase the RAM of your Android Smartphone. There are many ways and apps with the help of which you can increase the RAM of your rooted Android Smartphone. As you increase the RAM you can speed up your Android Smartphone. Some methods include using apps, other include partitioning your SD card, and then make your phone use that partition as  your phone’s additional RAM which in turn speed up the device. So if you have a slow android smartphone, increasing the RAM is definitely a must thing to do after your root your Android Smartphone.

Increase Internal Memory:

Also some Android Smartphones have really low internal memory like some low end smartphones from Smasung, HTC Etc, which only have around 300 MB of internal memory, and in that case installing apps becomes a pain in your arse. As after installing the most required apps like, Facebook, Whatsapp, etc the memory is almost full and it won’t allow you to install any further app. But do no worry, if you have rooted your Android Smartphone, there is no problem. You can simply increase the internal memory of your Android Smartphone, and it definitely a must thing to do after you root android smartphone, if you specifically have a smartphone with very low memory.

Overclocking:

Overclocking your Android Smartphone is another great thing to do after you root your Android Smartphone. Overclocking is a process by which you just increase the clocking speed of the processor in your Android Smartphone. And in turn the processing speed of the phone will increase and then the phone will perform much faster. But this is not a thing which you must do right after you root your Android Smartphone. As overclocking is not for beginners, and I would suggest if you new to the rooting arena, you should skip this thing as off now. You can get back later when you have enough knowledge about what is really is. As overclocking your android smartphone requires skill, and you should have full knowledge about what you are doing. overclocking can give rise to many issues like heating defects, and also it can decrease the life of your processor, and even brick your device if not done properly. So if you’re a beginner stay from this overclocking thing.

Install themes for Android Smartphone:

Android themes are one great way to increase the productivity and enhace the looks of your Android Smartphone. You can make personalized changes that suit you the best and also change the looks according to you. Just with a few taps, and this is another cool thing to do after rooting android smartphone. Themes are basically free, but some are paid too. You can get the KitKat look, iOS look just by installing the theme on your Android Smartphone.

Install must try apps for rooted phone:

There are many apps that are must try after you root your Android Smartphone. Like there are many apps that you weren’t able to install previously on your Smartphone, as it was not rooted then. Like activating the LED Notification lights after rooting your Android Smartphone, off course your handset needs to support that feature firstly. There are many apps that you must try, and we have made a list of those apps, you can read it from the link below.

Delete Bloatware:

Cleanup all the bloatware from the device. Bloatware means the unwanted stock apps that come pre-installed on the device, and then they cannot be deleted without root. You can delete these kind of apps using various app from the Play Store like the “Root Explorer” or “Uninstall Master”. Also deleting the bloatware from the phone, speeds it up, so it is must thing to do after you root your android smartphone.

Unroot your Android Smartphone:

Well this one is pretty unorthodox. yes you unrooting your Android Smartphone is one of the things that you should do after rooting your Android Smartphone. Sounds funny but yeah, I’m pretty sure on that. Well that actually depends on you. Everything comes with a price, like when you root your android smartphone, you will actually end up voiding your smartphone’s warranty.

So if in your case the unadvantages seem to have more impact, may be you should unroot your Android Smartphone by installing stock rom. To decide between the facts, Read:
