    I am planning on rooting my Samsung Galaxy S3 and I was wondering when I am done rooting it, what are the things I should do first to ensure maximum performance and security? :thinking:

    After researching online, rooting causes your phone to lower secruity so I highly recommend you install this free anti-virus program on Google Play: http://bit.ly/Ok3sMB As for performance, you install this apps to manage running apps and close the ones you rarely use. http://bitly.com/AmtswQ

    P.S. You can't recover your phone after you root it! If your phone just jacked up, you will need to purchase a new one.

    Hey, TimeAndroid!:)

    I have moved this thread into the 'all things root' section of this forum since this discussion involves rooting.

    This is one of the most stunningly ill-informed posts I've ever seen.

    Rooting your phone allows you to modify system files that yes, can screw with your phone. But every time an app requests superuser access, you'll be prompted to allow or deny. Rooting does not automatically open your phone to a flood of viruses. It's no more dangerous than logging into Windows using an Administrator account.

    Installing a task manager hasn't been a good idea on Android since Cupcake. Jelly Bean will do a far better job of managing background processes than any app. The running tasks pop-up window is more than enough to close any misbehaving app.

    And buying a new phone if something goes wrong? Are you serious? I wish I had

    I am sick of constantly having to re-root my phone every time Verizon pushes out a trivial update. I wouldn't mind if it was something significant like Jelly Bean :) It's still rather painful to root this phone. Can anything be done to either: 1. Prevent the unrooting? 2. Make re-rooting easier? I do have the ClockworkMod ROM installed, which seems like it may be designed to make this easier, but I'm not quite getting it. Sure, I can create a nandroid backup on my SD. But if I get pushed a new update from VZ which unroots me, and I restore the backup, I lose the update, isn't that right? So I have just rewound and get to play the stupid game all over again? It seems as though VZ is deliberately pushing frequent updates to keep people's phones from staying rooted. Very annoying to discover that my regular Titanium Backups have once again stopped occurring because I lost root. -Bob
