Help A Noob Out
I need help.
I've never owned a smartphone before, nor even handled an Android. I just bought this Huawei m835. I'm smart enough and savvy enough that I knew I'd have to root it, etc. to make it work how it should. (I understand the concept of bloatware, etc..)
So right out the box, armed with the knowledge of lurking this forum, I rooted it with gingerbreak. I installed Superuser. I installed Estrong file and task manager. I bought Root Explorer. I got Titanium Backup. I downloaded SDK and tried messing with adb commands, which only gave me a headache.
Eventually I somehow managed to change things to r/w and started moving things to the sd card.
Long story short, I ended up with a REALLY slow phone that hung on just about everything I tried to do with it.
I just factory reset it and it seems to be ok.
My problem was I cobbled together a bunch of bits of info I read from various threads. There is no "for noobs with no familiarity, start here" thread.
Can someone PLEASE give me a simple, concise, Step 1., Step 2. way to get bloat off my phone, free up internal memory, overclock the cpu, etc. etc.? And maybe customize it further?
I'm completely new to all of these terms like ROM, etc.
Thanks a million in advance.
I'm a noob, but I'm also very competent. Just need someone to get me started.
