Hiya everyone. This type of thread isn't new to XDA as it's on almost every device fora, but I decided to bring it over here aswell.

I'm going to share the most useful applications to have on a HTC Butterfly and would like you to share your must have apps. If an app gets mentioned by numerous people, that isn't on this list, I'll be sure to add it.

Rooted apps Section

  2. ROM Toolbox Pro - ROM Toolbox combines apps like Titanium Backup, Root Explorer, ROM Manager and others. A must-have root app *ROOT*
  3. AdAway - AdAway is an open source ad blocker for Android. *ROOT*
  4. Rom Manager - Must have app for any root user. Make backups, flash ROMs, and own your device. ROM Manager is THE MUST HAVE APP for any Android root user.
