How to Root OnePlus One!

For those of you who want to root your OnePlus One (Why root?  See Why Root Android?) to run rooted apps or want to install a custom ROM, here’s a step-by-step tutorial guide you can follow for all Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. Rooting the OnePlus One requires the user to unlock the bootloader.  Unlocking bootloader will ERASE EVERYTHING ON YOUR PHONE, so make a backup of everything including your personal photos, videos, etc beforehand!  YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!!!

How to Run Apps that don’t run on Rooted Android! [RootCloak]

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.

How to Fix 3G/4G LTE Data by Manually Setting APN on Android!

Many users have told me their 3G/4G LTE data network connection is broke after installing a custom ROM.  Well, in most of these cases, it can easily be fixed by manually setting the APN (Access Point Name).  This applies to any GSM networks such as AT&T or T-Mobile.  For CDMA networks like Sprint or Verizon, they also use APNs but you don’t have to set them and should work out of the box.
