America is probably one of the best places to live in my opinion (why I live here) but also worst place to get wifi tether working, especially on the four major carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.

Recently, I’ve noticed there’s more apps that check for root on your Android smartphone/tablet device and won’t let you run the app because you have a rooted Android device. Usually, these are safety precautions that companies take in case of hackers stealing your private information but I honestly think they are going overboard as Android is built on Linux, which is not susceptible to viruses like Windows. Most rooted Android devices are in fact probably safer because the user has full control over the phone, not the other way around.
I know many of you don’t have a Nexus 5 and can’t enjoy the latest and great Google Keyboard that will supposedly be on the next Android 5.0 BUT if you have a rooted Android smartphone/tablet, you can install the latest Android L Preview keyboard easily by following tutorial below.
For rooted Android smartphones and tablets, sometimes you may need to flash IMG files (files ending in .img). Whether you are flashing recovery image such as CWM or TWRP recovery or flashing boot image, it’s always a complicated task involving fastboot command with a computer OR terminal emulator with dd commands.
For those of you with a rooted Android smartphone or tablet, you probably want to know that there’s an awesome audio app that’s free and you can install on any rooted Android device. This app is better than anything on the Play Store and it’s free.
Here’s a really cool app called Hovering Controls App, that allow you to add hovering shortcuts to any Android smartphone similar to the Air Gestures found on a Galaxy S4.
For those of you with a Galaxy S4, Note 2, S3, Note 10.1, or Note 8.0, there’s an easy way to enable all apps for multi-window now using the Multi-Window Manager App. Before, the user had to install a custom ROM or a multi-window MOD to make this work but with the app, all you need is root.
