    how do you setup a rooted phone? aka, what do you do with a phone immediately after you root it?

    id like to start by saying that i do not need the classic "if you dont know what youre doing, dont bother" root lecture. im looking for someone to inform me, not brush me off to feed their tech-ego. people tend to get really snotty when it comes to rooting, and dealing with people who do not know as much as they do on the topic. we all have the right to learn and obtain information.

    i am posting this because i would like to understand more about rooting. feel free to verbal diahrrea and show off your knowledge in a helpful way! i have the following questions:

    -Does it speed your phone up?
    -Does it cause problems that normally would not occur using stock rom?
    -Does it REQUIRE extensive knowledge of using command prompts and things of that nature? If so, are their tutorials and guides and sites you can refer to online to help you with this stuff?
    -Once you root your phone, literally immediately after, what is the next step? "Flash" a rom, what does that do? And then what? And so on......

    These questions may sound noobish, but I've read up a decent amount on rooting, yet its hard to truly understand whats going on without physically seeing it, but obviously I cant see it cause I dont want to do it unless I know EXACTLY what it entails. And their are no videos on this, just videos on how to root, but never any videos on what to do AFTER you root.


  2. To root your phone enables you the opportunity to have a better phone overall. Yes it speeds your phone up. If their are problems they are noted in the changelogs. No it does not require extensive knowledge of ANYTHING. After you flash the rom(the option will be in the custom recovery you will install with the command listed) you just let it load and everything is already setup for you.
