Default Evo Root Only Apps.

So I just rooted recently and was wondering what are the best root only apps?
Or what are must have apps to make life simple?

IMO must haves:

Wireless Tether - free (but I donated) - Bye bye Sprint Hot Spot and the $30/month.

ROM Manager Premium - $5 - Download, backup, wipe, flash, and reboot in one click. Swap recoveries without having to boot into recovery, or reboot period.

Titanium Backup Premium - $4 - I've been hearing about recent problems, but dev is very responsive with fixes and updates; he'll straighten it out.

MyBackup Pro - $5 - Works differently than Titanium, and IMO they compliment each other perfectly.

Root Explorer - $4 - Works like ASTRO or EStrongs in the protected area, often saving you the hassle of ADB. Easily uninstall bloatware.

SetCPU - $2 - Great for setting up over/underclock profiles.

Quick Boot - free - One click reboot into recovery, fastboot, or back into Android.

Optional:

ShootMe - free - Shake your phone for a screen shot.

JuiceDefender - free (Ultimate $3) - Helps extend battery life.

CacheMate - Frees up RAM by clearing out your caches (not as important for Evo as it was for Hero).

Wireless tether says it requires a netfilter enabled kernel. I'm using netarchy 3.7.5, how do I find out whether or not this is?

When I run the app it says unable to tether, I'm just guessing that its a problem with the kernel.

What ROM and which version of WT are you using?

I was on stock rooted 2.1 with what ever version of WT is on the market, but I just finished flashing the 2.2 rom, once I flash the netarchy kernel for 2.2 I'm going to try again with WT.

I discovered through the WT FAQ that it wasn't a problem with the kernel, it would have given me a different error message, not the "unable to tether" message it was giving me. Hoping the 2.2 rom will make it work

Edit: Using WT with 2.2 rom works =)

Baked snack came with WT205pre8 and I had FC issues. I backed it down to pre7 and everything is fine. Point being, if you run into another glitch, trying out versions can help.

Okay so i got the premium version of rom manager..
i just flashed over to a rooted 2.2 deodexed stock sprint rom(xda-developers - View Single Post - ♠♠♠[ROM]♠♠♠ UPDATED 8/28 HTC Froyo 2.2, *FINAL*, v3.26.651.6 │Rooted│ DeOdexed RevE3) (did this so i can give themeing(xda-developers - View Single Post - [THEME] Update 8-25 NEW FROYO2.2 Riptide9's ColorNClear, White, or Glass) a try) and it came with a couple surprises ( Car Home, and Quickboot as well as the updated gmail with floating bar)

Another app that i found that was kinda a big thing to me personally is the WiMax indicator(xda-developers - View Single Post - [App Project][Update 08/28/10] WiMAX SMS Notifier) for recieving text cause it uses the other led in speaker grill to alert of new text.. its a big plus if your phone is on charger you can tell if you recieved a text.. i love it!!

well i hope more people have some more input on ROOT only apps
That will help make our life easier!!!

Check out the app "Roam Control". It can force your Rooted phone into Roam Only. Very useful if you live in a weak Sprint coverage area. It does cost $3.99 but it is well worth the money to me!
