You can just turn them off. If you go to settings>general>application manager, you can click on the app and turn it off. It won't completely get rid of it, but it will make it so it's not really effecting anything. It's basically the same as freezing it with titanium backup. ...

When you unlock your screen and look at the screen, or swipe to another screen, that is your launcher. Basically your home screen(s). You are currently using the touchwiz launcher, but there are a ton of other launchers out there that you can use instead. In most people's opinion (mine included) ...

No, it just allows you to gain root access. But once you have root, you can get a custom recovery and possibly unlock your bootloader without wiping your device, depending on what type you have. I have an att note 3, and the bootloader is loc...

The Kitkat update doesn't make your SD card stop working. You can still do all of those things with the update. All the update does is make it so that apps can only interact with only their folders on the SD card. That's it. If you have your camera set to save pictures on the SD card, it still w...

Usually the "games and apps" that can't be deleted are in the system partition of your phone. If you delete them, you are deleting them from that partition, which means you won't be able to use that freed space. ...

I have one. I'm just rooted with the Xposed framework on it. I'm using the Google Experience Launcher with XGELS(allows you to customize the GEL)

If you go into settings>controls>one-handed operation, you can set the phone up to go to one-handed operations. Like if you swipe onto, then off the screen it will shrink to screen making it smaller, thus easier to perform one-handed operations. You can also change the setting so that the keyboard...

If you are thinking about it, know this: The bootloader on ATT and Verizon is locked the frick down and probably won't ever be exploited or unlocked.

Now that I have my library uploaded to Google, I was wondering if I should make the move ...
