If your Android device is rooted for using a cooked ROM, you should install 2 useful apps, Root Explorer & Titanium Backup, for backing up data and deeply accessing the device system.
1. Titanium Backup
This app helps us backup and restore apps and their settings. We can backup manually or automatically by setting a backup schedule. This app also provides other useful functions:
- Freeze apps that are installed but do not work properly.
- Uninstall system apps and installed apps .
(Note: the batch backup/restore functions are only available on Pro version).
- Version 18.104.22.168: http://www.mediafire.com/?0e4pc4zuejgcx4s
2. Root Explorer
This app is used to access to the storage and sd card of your Android device. We can modify the device system with this app, such as overclock, copy files *.apk, and delete system apps.
Note: if you copy any file into system, don’t forget to set permission for it. If you don’t set the permission, errors may occur during the booting process. For example, if you copy file “framework-res.apk” and forget to set permission for it, you device can not start.
Access to “system/app” folder where the apps of the cooked ROM are stored. Now you can delete apps or copy new apps into this folder. To copy or edit apps, you must change Mount R/W to Mount R/O as follow:
- Set permission for apps before using. Touch on the app that you want to set permission in 2s to display the Option dialog and choose “permissions”.
- Check all boxes and click OK. Reboot your device.
