Freezing those applications keeps them from loading even as cached apps freeing up space in RAM to cache other apps that i frequently use.

In addition I uninstalled all Knox related apps.

For other mods I'm using Xposed Installer to do things like per application DPI settings to render things in smaller fonts, block ads, disable nag screens (location consent, modify share menus, modify complete action windows etc.), control what starts at boot (boot manager) as well as a few other tweaks.

Cool, thanks for the info. Did you use towelroot, and what ver of the note pro do you have?

SM-P900 Wifi, 32GB and no I had used CF Autoroot which was the only available method at the time.

So far two of us have tired the towelroot in the other thread on the P900 with no success. It seems to be working though on the P905.

But no harm was done if towelroot failed? I might give it a go when I get home from work tonite. Just got my Note in the mail on my lunchbreak, wooohooo!

It seems to have literally just failed to do anything for me. No root, no trigger, it's like I never ran it.
