Necessities for Root Users

Android Channel

Finally rooted your phone? These apps are all must-have apps to fully take advantage of your new root privileges. Any paid apps are worth the price, and more, but don't take my word for it: try the free version first.

    Currently the best Superuser app on the market. If you pay for the full version, you will get things like OTA Survival (attempts to keep root through an OTA update).

    Memory Locker

    If you have an app that you use frequently, and it always is slow to start up, you need this app. It basically tells Android's process manager "keep a part of this app running so that when we need to open it, it doesn't take forever." It doesn't...

    This app works off Android's built-in App Ops (disabled in 4.2.2; if you are root, search in Google "re-enable app ops android 4.2" for a root-only method of getting app ops back). The app will show you which apps request certain permissions, and...
