    its very simple -
    1- setup your phone and enjoy it.
    2- It is not necessary to root the phone.
    3- as for security apps, I dont use any. I use common sense when it comes to installing apps.
    4- as for maintenance - not sure what maintenance you need.

    For my SG2 I used;
    1: Applications; Launcher- Go Launcher EX, SMS- GoSMS Pro, Beautiful Widgets for my home screen, Dolphin- web browser, Lux- screen brightness management, K9 mail for email, Tapatalk for forums, Tunein for online radio, Veetle to watch movies, FoxFi for teethering, CraigsNotifica for craigslist...

    a: security; Lookout- it scans for malware and it can help you locate your phone if lost, Wifi Protector to protect you when on wifi at a cafe shop, AirPush Detector to let you know what apps are pushing you ads,

    b: maintenance; cachemate to clean cache


    Root if you want to unlock features or improve performance:
    1. To improve your 3g speed, lag issues and want a more faster respond- check out Zeppelinrox's V6 Supercharger on XDA Developers

    2. Titanium BackUp to freeze apps or back up apps

    3 AppMonster to backup apps and move apps to SD card

    4. Root Explorer to locate files on your phone

    5. GL to SD- move your games folder content to your external sd card

    6. AdFree- reduce or take away ads from apps

    7. Juice Defender- helps you with getting more out of your battery.

    I have two extended batteries that give me extra power...

    Hope this helps...
