What to do after Rooting your Device?


One of the many questions we get is what to do after rooting a device? Most users expect root to be this magical solution to all the problems on their device, which is not the case at all. Root is just access to almost all the features of your firmware and the ability to change anything on your device. Of course you need applications to be able to change things.

So, what should you do after achieving root? Well, the first thing we recommend is deleting most of the unused stock applications that come with your phone. This process is called debloating, and this alone is quite often enough of a reason to root your device. In order to do this, you can use an app called System App Remover. Just remember not to remove any system apps (the app would tell you which apps you shouldn’t remove) if you are unsure about it. As you may end up bricking your phone.

Another cool thing to do after getting root is to get various specific mods for your device such as ad blocker etc. Most of them can be downloaded as specific apps but there are some which are Xposed Framework modules only. So it’s better to get Xposed Framework on your device, IF it is supported by your device.

Apart from that, you can always install a system file explorer to be able to change certain files, if required. You can also get cool root apps such as Greenify which monitors your battery life and tries to improve it by a factor.

One thing which people confuse with root is the ability to install Custom ROMs. The thing to remember here is that you need a custom recovery to be able install a custom ROM. Sure, the process of installing a custom recovery becomes easier after rooting but you don’t necessarily need root to be able install a custom recovery or ROM to your device.

These were just some generic instructions on what to do after achieving root. Obviously, there are surely a lot more things you can do after root but you DO need apps to be able to do so.
