    Hi all,

    I have just purchased Apex Launcher and find I have to rout my phones, any advice on how I should do this on my international (UK) Samsung Galaxy S3 phone. Never routed before.

    Thanks

    I think it only needs root for widgets.
    CF-root is the way to go

    It installed but widgets couldn't be placed on home screens. I have rooted it now and the program works fine.

    Thanks so much for the support.

    You can add widgets on apex without root, you just long press on a home screen and select widgets from there instead of the app drawer.

    But now you're rooted you can do other cool stuff like custom roms and root only apps :)

    Don't know a lot about ROMs other than receiving a taste of official releases early. Is there more to it?

    Depending the ROM, there is loads of added extras... Such as themes, "kitchens" to downloads extra content/apps, bloatware removal etc...

    read the rom description (usually post #1) and you'll get an idea off what each ROM offers...
