    Smile Just Rooted...

    So- hello everybody! I was a member on the other Atrix site, but lost the link and am here!

    So I rooted my Atrix. What can I do with it?
    How do I keep my phone safe?

    Any pointers/info would be great!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Atrix Forums!

    With Root you have full access to your phone. Remove/freeze any app or file, Backup your apps with Titanium Backup, change bootup animation and more.
    The human brain is amazing. It starts as soon as you wake up and stops as soon as you get work.

    Welcome, welcome!

    Try to keep our link in a safer place, huh?

    Actually most of the biggest reasons the general public rooted their phones has started to go away.... AT&T has now enabled non-market apps and most screen shot apps now work without root.

    As ROCer stated TiBU is a big one... lots of backup options, freezing bloatware, and more.

    I use Root Explorer daily for a file manager that can see root files.

    If you wanted to get into editing system files (be careful!) to theme you own phone you can do so with root.

    Thanks for all of the replies!

    How do I go about getting a cool theme or a cool start up sequence?

    I have noticed that there is not a whole lot of extra features since rooting/


    Question: if I ever need to send my phone into the company, how would I get it unrooted and back to factory state?

    Thanks!

    You would need to flash a SBF to your phone, which would wipe out the root, apps and settings. Once you're on 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) just be sure to not flash to an earlier version. If you ever have to do it just let us know and we can help.

    You can start with a few of these for boot animations:
