Default [Q] Favorite Mods and Apps for Rooted Note 2?

Is there a list of Favorite Mods and Apps for Rooted Note 2?

I just swapped from CleanRom (old phone) to Jedi-X-ROM (new Note-2 b/c broken antenna) ... it seemed to be highly rated.

These are my favorites so far:
What are some other popular apps?
LuxDash for display light control
MX Player for video
AlarmClockExtreme
Data ON/OFF widget (I was surprised that Jedi-X did not provide a data switch)
CleanMaster
SuperSU-root things
TitaniumBackup

No problem. There's a lot more out there but these are the ones I always put on my phones.

look em up man! if you dont know then you probably should. super helpful apps.

Ad-away - ad blocker
Greenify - hibernates apps so they dont run all the time basically the apps you hibernate thru Greenify only run when you tap on them to run. Example maps. Helps with wakelocks.
Root Explorer - my personal favorite file manager.
TiBU = Titanium Backup. backs up all your apps. Think it requires root.

Those are the ones I use and I install everytime I flash a new ROM.

I'll add in the rest:

Quickboot - Not really necessary anymore but I use it to go to recovery or reboot without using the power button. I use the Free version.

GMD SPen - Gives gesture control and is similar to what the stock ROM offers. Only needed on AOSP ROMs. Paid app.

Note Buddy - Gives you some more spen functions. Only used on AOSP ROMs. Free.

Seeder - This reduces lag on my phone. YMMV. Free if you use the XDA link. Paid in the Play store.

Wakelock Detector - Tells you what is waking up your phone. Free.
