>>52405718 You still download torrents and put them on your phone through adb because the quality is higher and there's no DRM and you're in control and it always works offline and it will never consume data.
>>52405068 forget these ricer faggots. root has better uses, like degoogling your phone and using foss alternatives. go ahead, 'brick' your phone. you can always recover and ive never hard bricked anything. first off get fdroid. you will have to install it with apk. then install ghost commander, and root around your disk, deleting bloat preinstalled. adw is a great foss launcher, as opposed to nova launcher, and titanium backup is a meme app used by people who usually dont have anything to backup anyways.
also check out lucky patcher if you just want to play pirated games or turn off ads in apps
>>52405754 actually i want to mention something, if your phone is relatively popular it very likely has custom roms. complete replacements for your os. think of it like linux distros, which is pretty much exactly what it is. cyanogenmod is the most popular one but there are plenty others
>>52405068 Hi anon, one of the great things about Android is you can make it look how you want- there are autists in rice threads n' shit but it's worth for everyone with Android looking at things like Nova Launcher (it has more options than stock) and UCCW (custom widgets that look cool) as well as icon packs (there's loads of these- see what you like)
>>52405688 Adb >Not just using (Bitttorent) "Sync" (Cable or wifi) But yes, rooted "adb over wifi" exists too.
>>52405754 Hardbricked, usualy just reflash bootloader or recovery and reflash stock and jump from there - Always been my saver (Takes high amount of skill tho)
Root Supersu.apk Titanumbackup Xposed (hardcore more) Nova Lyckypatcher (Remove ads, ingame free pay, patchings) Amplify if you are battery addicted autistic like me XPrivacy (Like Android 6.0 permissions, but even deeper) Adaway (if xposed) Cyanogenmod based roms should do the heavy trickery tho, no stock please
>>52405731 Oh so funneh m8tey ;^) >Inb4 carrat nose...
It really depends what you want to do with it. If you don't care too much then just use it as a normal phone, but there are some interesting things you can do.
>root This will open the door to so much more for your phone. Ad blockers, root only apps, etc.
>xposed Think of this like an app store for root only apps. It's pretty cool and offers a lot of things like performance tweaks, customization, and other shit only available after rooting.
>custom roms You can flash different roms (think of them as slightly different operating systems) on your phone to keep it up to date on android updates. Some will also have better privacy, have more control over app permission, battery saving, less resource intensive, and allow you to customize the hell out of them.
>Home screen launchers If you're interested in ricing download Nova Launcher and a few icon packs from the play store. Play around with those things until you create a good looking home screen, and then you can try posting it in the home screen threads for suggestions.
>KLWP Another app meant for ricing - works best with nova launcher or other launchers. This will let you create really nice live wallpapers. There are some premade ones available on the play store, but after you have some experience you should try making your own.
>F-droid Open source app store, if you're into that kinda stuff
Some good xposed modules >Gravity Box >Greenify >Lucky Patcher >Youtube Adaway
Also, since this is your first smart phone I'll give you some general tips about them. NEVER download any "cleaning" apps from the play store that claim to "speed up your phone by clearing junk" or some shit like that. It's all bullshit and is basically just malware.
Also, I would recommend going into developer settings (tap build number in settings a bunch of times to unlock dev settings), and then checking off Force GPU Rendering and Disable HW Overlays. Might as well check off USB debugging as well.
I think that's a lot of information that you can sort through. Go look on xda for information about how you can unlock the bootloader, root, and install a custom recovery.
Oh and one last thing OP, I don't remember where exactly the setting is, but you're going to have to enable app installs from unknown sources. I think it's in dev settings or under security or something like that, but you'll find it.
F-Droid is a marketplace alternative to the Play Store, but what makes it so much better is that all the apps are 100% open source which means the apps are 99% less likely to require insane permissions. unlike the Play Store where the most downloaded apps for things like flashlight steal your identity...
>>52405731 >>52409605 >>52408597 >>52408548 >>52405903 I have a vibrator app like he said and it's god like if your phone has good vibration. Sometimes i'll just leave it on under my balls while jerking, other times i wrap it up in plastic and put between my ass.
