Are you rooted? This app is amazing. Puts all others to shame. I'm blown away.

    I just heard of this app via one of the Android podcasts I listen to and had to try out the free lite version. After using it once, I paid the $3.99 for it. I always buy the pro or paid version of every app I think is good (whether I keep it or not) to support the developers. If people need to pirate 69p / 99¢ apps, they shouldn't be buying a tablet or smartphone. Anyway, I digress.

    If you use ROM manager, goomanager, titanium Backup, terminal emulator, Ad blocker, flash a a lot, like to customize the look of your status bar icons, change kernels, speed up or slow down your cpu, etc... There is one app that does everything, and very easy to use. It does everything for you. No coding needed. You just have to root your device.

    Get it. "ROM TOOLBOX" / "ROM TOOLBOX PRO" by jrummy

    As usual make a Nandroid copy of your phone/tablet, if you used titanium Backup, take that backup and file it on your pc, then dump rom manager, goomanager and titanium Backup. Seriously, this app does all of those functions and does them better.

    Interesting never heard of it. I've only ever used Titanium. Saw way to many complaints about Rom Manager, heck think even most of the Rom devs don't even recommend it.

    Yeah, I had never heard of it either, but it really amazed me. Shocked actually. This just made flashing, changing kernels, over clocking and underclocking a piece of cake.

    Changing the boot animation, boot logo and status bar icons was a bonus too.

    Snapshots of the app.

    Lets you pick which UI for individual apps. I have it set to use the phablet ui for apps and the launcher but use the tablet status bar which saves room especially in landscape.

    I really like the look of that weather app. That is a custom ROM isn't it? Know if I can get that weather app without it?

    I guess I could check it.

    I just loaded paranoid 2.0 onto my S3 and it's awesome. Jelly bean is just terrific.

    Well, even with this app, you still have to do some manual configurations to change the boot animation. In System/Media folder are two .qmg files that Samsung is using for boot animations. These are what need to be altered.

    Also found how and where to change system sounds like the keyboard tap sound, at&t boot sound, etc. System/Media/UI

    I kept searching on XDA and other places and seems many still prefer Titanium, but then there were others that said they stuck to Rom Toolbox. I'm so used to Titanium' slick setup and use, not sure how I feel switching to something else lol.
