Rooted, sd write as mentioned, carrier iq, dpi, ads...hell, same reasons as everyone else. I don't mind it stock with root but I am hoping for AOSP builds honestly as I just prefer it. I should have got a nexus but knowing the 5 was nearing the point that one way or the other goggle would update it or go silver I just couldn't justify it so went with the g3. Now if only the locked bootloader gets defeated I feel confident this phone will fly.

If I could trade the tweak box for Dirty Unicorns, I'd do it in a heartbeat lol

I rooted just because I can. Aside from a few minor tweaks from tweakbox, I'm still completely stock. Haven't flashed any roms or mods, although the WiFi tether mod has peaked my interest. This phone is nearly perfect right out the box. Haven't felt the need to install a custom Rom. Most of them are stock roms anyway.

I rooted in order to use TWRP recovery and various xposed tweaks. I can honestly say that after rooting and applying some xposed mods, I don't even miss the AOSP experience on my previous Nexus devices. This stock ROM (with the right tweaks) absolutely flies and has some nice features that I'd miss with an AOSP ROM. I think my days of flashing AOSP ROMs are over.

I want to root but I don't know where to begin and how to get stuffs like ads block, dpi changer ... Do I need to flash new ROM to get those?? Could someone please show me to the right direction?

Many will be running stock, but it wont be the op definition of stock (aka no root) this is after all...xda development, according to the vote, 87% are here just for that lol

I pretty much always root, but I couldn't stay stock since I found the UI to be unresponsive at times. I'm currently running the SkyDragon ROM and kernel along with Nova Launcher and other mods.

I went ahead and rooted my phone in order to get rid of the lag/stutter and to get rid of bloat and Carrier IQ. Of course, as I've gotten farther down the rabbit hole, I now have TWRP Recovery and have downloaded (not installed yet!) Skydragon's ROM and Kernel to take advantage of further optimizations.

I had a One (m7) and a G2 and never felt the need to root as T-Mobile's footprint on them was pretty limited. But, getting back in the saddle on XDA and using these amazing developers' work has rekindled my interest in the details!
