Use Root Apps When Unrooted?
Basically I need to stay unrooted because certain apps don't work with root. On 4.1.2 I used an OTA Rootkeeper app to toggle root when need be. Now on 4.3 I rooted to remove bloat and install a couple apps, then unrooted again by deleting all the su stuff with root explorer. OTA Rootkeeper and other apps to toggle root do not work properly with 4.3.
Basically I am enjoying the Viper4Android mod even though I am unrooted, and on 4.1.2 I noticed that mods such as the xposed multiwindow would work even if root was toggled off. I tried installing it on 4.3 but got a bootloop and had to start again. Right now I have set up everything I wanted on root and have unrooted my phone and everything is fine. However, I am curious if I can root again, install this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...smanager&hl=en
and then unroot again? Bear in mind that Viper works fine even though I have removed root, and the xposed multiwindow worked fine with root toggled off on 4.1.2... I just don't want to end up with a bootloop again and have to start all over.
I'm also wondering if it is possible to install a custom recovery and keep it even after I unroot. I'll only need to use it for backup purposes.
