What's up team,
still getting used to things around here and I apologize for the stupid questions in advance! However, you all have been amazing and helpful to me thus far and I appreciate it.
So, I finally decided to root my Sprint GS4 thanks to the helping hand of the great QBKing77
I was trying to go even further and be able to do the free hotspot which QBKing77 had a video for as well. However, I noticed that the download links that he had supplied us folks with did not include baseband version is MK2 - which is what I am currently running (whatever that means.)
So among several other questions, first and foremost; what can I do to get the free hotspot/tether with MK2? Should I simply download one of the other links instead or will this damage my device?
Also, as said, I am new to this. I just rooted my device for the first time and am unaware what the difference is between odexed and deodexed? What does this mean, what is the difference, and how do I know which one I am?
Leading in to that, I installed TWRP custom recovery. I tried to click on back up then select "boot," "system," and "data." However, it is saying that the attempt was failed. I am going to assume that this is because the whole back up would be roughly 3gb's and it says that I have only 502mb's available on my phone.
I read somewhere a while back that I could delete stock apps from my phone after I route. How can I do this? I am guessing that this would free up a significant amount of storage and thus could accomplish the back up. Is it safe to delete stock apps? How can I know which apps I can safely uninstall?
Thanks guys! Any other tips or tricks or words of advice...even constructive criticism are welcomed!
