Default [Q] first time rooter

hello title kinda says it all.

Ive been thinking of rooting phone mainly to get rid of all the bloatware in the s3 mini. besides that i really dont know what all the roms are capable off.

essentially i want:

eliminate bloatware

improve battery life (if possible)

have greater control over app notifications (sounds etc)

nicer looking gui is a plus.

also is it possible to do this without losing my already installed apps?

Here you go!
I will make a tutorial on how to install custom roms. I also have a review of a custom rom.

Basicly customs roms will give you a very smooth and fast experience without any bloatware(stuff that are unecessary which uses lots of ram).
Roms also give you some extra features that you won't get on stock roms.

"best rom" topics is not welcome here. you need to try it for yourself and choose one. all i can say is start with novafusion's roms. like cyanogenmod cm11, 10.2. carbon rom etc. i use novafusion's cm11 and pretty cool. but try them and choose
