Default List of Apps for Rooted Phones

Since more and more users have started rooting their phones, I thought I'd throw together a list of some commonly used, useful apps that are specifically for rooted phones. If anyone has any other apps to suggest, please feel free to add to the thread (try to include a link if possible).

(Remember, these are apps for rooted phones only! If you are interested in rooting, please visit our rooting forum and make sure you read all of the stickies first! Know what you are doing and what you are getting into before you start.)


Rom Manager Manages ROMs. Installs many popular ROMs from the SD card or OTA, manages and restores backups.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

BusyBox Not sure what this is/does but many apps that require root also require BusyBox.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

Titanium Backup Backs up, restores, freezes and uninstalls apps (including stock/system apps) and data.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

MyBackup Root Backs up and restores apps and data.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

CacheMate for Root UsersClears cache for all apps with one click.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

Quick Boot (Reboot) One click to do a regular reboot, reboot into recovery mode, power down or bootloader mode.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

AdFree Addon Removes ads from apps and browsers. (Note: many/most developers rely on ad revenue, especially on free apps, to continue developing ads and use of this app will deny them said revenue.)

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

Move2SD Enabler Allows you to move all apps to the SD card, including apps not specifically programmed to be moved automatically upon download/installation.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

SetCPU Use for overclocking/underclocking. Make sure you know what you are doing before using this! (Costs $1.99, no free version)

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

OverclockWidget Widget to monitor overclocking.

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

Root Manager Shutdown, reboot, recovery, bootloader (widget); remount /system; wipe your data; remove system apps/data; backup sys app; manage data connection; manage sd card mount; build.prop editor. (Costs $2.73, no free version)

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

Root ExplorerFile manager, gives access to internal files including data folder. (Costs $3.95, no free version)

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________


Wireless TetherAllows tethering “via wifi or bluetooth and get access to the internet using the mobile connection (4G, 3G, 2G) or (in case you are using bluetooth) the wifi connection which is established by the handset.”

__________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

Hi
One thing I did not see in your list of Apps for rooted phones in my opinion deserves to be in the top is called,
NinjaMorph http://www.appbrain.com/search?q=ninjamorph

Stephen (Stericson)
"NinjaMorph was made so that we could more easily make changes to the system apks and jar files from our phones without needing to apply a packaged theme or hook our phones up to the computer."

I am in love! This is only my 2nd day of tinkering with NinjaMorph on my daily driver, Myn’s Warm TwoPointTwo rom its been fun adding my personal touch to the already excellent rom! See pics!

[Mod note: edited to remove quoted text and fix url. No need to quote the entire OP if you want to suggest an app. Thanks.]

Battery Calibration (also available on AppBrain or in the Market). I never realized that its a good idea to clear the existing battery stats when flashing new ROMs in order to recalibrate the battery data, which will help insure the actual battery use. If you've had inconsistent battery results when switching ROMs, you might want to give this a try to help determine whether or not the ROM is performing well.

Edit: just to clarify about this app, it doesn't actually calibrate/condition the battery, which we know doesn't need it. What it does is removes the old batterystat file and replaces it with a fresh file to get more accurate readings of how the battery is currently performing. So its not one of those drain dry and refill several times kind of thing.

From Team Win, the group that brought us Full HDMI, we now have Kernel Manager Lite and Kernel Manager Pro ($3.99).

Quote:
Kernel Manager Lite:
  • -Includes ads
  • -Cannot use the kernel filtering menu (which helps users find a kernel that best suits them)

The app:
  • -Allows you to browse a list of custom kernels with ease!
  • -Downloads custom kernels
  • -Flashes the kernel automatically!
  • -Clears your device's caches
  • -Reboots your device!

_________________________________________________

Kernel Manager Pro:
  • -Lets you flash a kernel straight from the SD card
  • -Will soon have the ability to flash the official nightly CyanogenMod kernel for every device
  • -No ads!
  • -Easy-to-use kernel filter menu, which helps users find a kernel that best suits theim

The app:
  • -Allows you to browse a list of custom kernels with ease!
  • -Downloads custom kernels
  • -Flashes the kernel automatically!
  • -Clears your device's caches
  • -Reboots your device!
I'm trying the free version. There are comments regarding the app causing FCs when clicking More Info but thus far, I haven't had any FC issues at all. Haven't tried installing a kernel with it yet since I'm happy with the one I have, but I may try it just to see how well it works.
