    Changes the color tint of your screen when it's getting dark. Like F.Lux on PC, it's makes looking on your screen in the evening much easier on your eyes.

    Unfortunately this app only works for the Nexus line. But if you have a Nexus and are rooted, this app is essential. It is able to lock or unlock the bootloader without wiping data. Also the Tamper flag can be modified. I use this app to relock my...

    Access your phone faster. Whenever you're connected to a trusted WIFI or bluetooth network this app will unlock your device. If you're rooted, pattern and face unlock can be toggled, for non rooted users only pin works. For me this app is way more...

    Need to flash boot.img and don't have a computer available? No need for fastboot, flashify does it for you. You can also add flashable tips to recovery script, and automatically boot and flash in recovery. It never failed for me, fantastic.

    Apply icon themes system wide. So even the stock launcher can use them (or launchers that don't support themed icons like Aviate). Requires Xposed framework.

    The Faux Kernel really brings the best sound out of Nexus (and many other) devices. With Fauxsound on my Nexus 5 sounds just so much smoother.

    If you wanna convince someone to root his device GMD Gesture Control is a great app to do so. The multitouch gestures GMD introduces make navigation on your device much smother. For example, you can switch between apps with a swipe. Or define...

    If available for your device (google is your friend) you should run the Franco Kernel on your Nexus. Amazing battery life. You don't need the app to run it, it ships with recommended settings, but you can update it, tweak it and support the dev.

    Root allows you to quickly change GPS, reboot, enter airplane mode, and do much more. Even unrooted phones can toggle everything they can think of using this tool, but root makes it even more useful.

    This is a super app for Root users. Includes most everything you need. ROM management, Root Browser, CPU control, DNS changer, you name it. Even fonts or boot animations can be changed by this app.

    Tired of apps which uselessly run in the background, waking up your device, cutting short performance and battery life? Greenify helps you. Hibernates apps so they only get resource when running in the foreground. Don't hibernate your alarm clock or...

    Oh what a blessing this app is. Backuped all my apps + settings w/ Titanium, flashed the magnificent Nexus 5 Cataclysm Rom (look for it on XDA developers), restored the apps and almost everything was just like before. Just had to refresh my widgets....

    Nandroid backups are one of the sweetest goodies when rooted. A custom recovery allows you to backup your whole device, which can be saved and restored later. This is the best app I found to manage these backups on your Android.

    I use this together with Tasker to automatically start GPS when opening Maps. Can control many more phone settings, but I need to dig in deeper.
