I've chosen to root my phone. I really don't even know all the benefits and I will likely never see most of them because I'm a basic user but it sounds easy to do so I will. My main intention is to clear all the bloat and crapware the phone came with. I'm all about the minimalistic installations. so I have a couple of questions. 1. I root using the "almost one click root" thread/files/instructions right? 2. Then I will have what? the same exact thing I have now with the only difference being that I can uninstall factory apps like amazon? 3. then before doing anything, I do a backup. a backup using titanium or a backup using that bootstrap/recover thread on this board? what's the difference or is there any? 4. then what? just go into application manager and now the uninstall button will be available for said applications? 5. What about roms? is it easier to just flash with a minimalistic/extreme performance rom? are there any? 6. last but not least, is there a definitive list (updated) of everything I can uninstall that most people don't want like trials (cityid) and stuff like amazon mp3? sorry for all the questions. like I said, I'm not a power user. I just use this phone for text and gmail. sometimes browse the web, but I can't stand having uneccessary garbage on my computer so why would I be ok bogging down my phone with it?
