I'm a newly rooted user. I have never rooted a device before. I decided to root my G3 D850 to remove bloatware and to install the G3 Tweaksbox.
In addition, I've added a copule of modules to the Xposed framework and downloaded Adaway. So far all is well. But, upon further research, asking questions etc, I realized I needed a few more apps to complement the root.
I have also downloaded, (in addition to SuperSu and Titanium Backup)
Better Battery Stats
Online Nandroid Backup
I'm a casual user who doesn't have much of an understanding of code, programing, & development.
I'm not sure what Busybox does, or if I truely need it.
Better Battery is OK.
Nandroid Backup is not working properly, the backups are not appearing in the Nandroid Manager.
CatLog has come in useful to report a bug to the developer of the Tweakbox.
Why I am considering unrooting my phone, Battery life.
My G3 battery life was out of this world before I rooted. Now, it is not so hot.
The only culprit according to the BBS is an Audioln Wakelock caused by the Google Hotword detection, but honestly, I have always had the hotword detection turned on and haven't had battery issues before the root.
The only thing I am really interested in, is removing bloatware, and customizing the phone slightly using Xposed Framework Modules and the G3 Tweaksbox. I am not installing custom ROM's or anything like that.
Do I NEED the above mention apps? If so, could someone expalin in laymans terms why? Also, any idea's on the battery drain?
I love the xposed framework and the tweaksbox, but if the battery drain continues I may unroot my phone.
Thanks for any feedback.
