Rooting an Android device opens a whole new world of possibilities. However, you might not know where to start. Here are our top 5 root apps for Android.
The name of the app speaks for itself. Root Essentials combines all the tools you might find useful on your rooted device. From a build.prop editor to a handful of interface tweaks, this app has you covered. Everything works seamlessly and the app is undoubtedly one of the most best programs if you want to make the most out of your rooted device.
Let’s start off with the best app to remove all those annoying advertisements – AdBlock. This free and open-source tool will block almost all ads including pop-ups, banners and even Facebook like buttons. It can also protect you from malware and disable tracking. All features can be easily toggled via the app settings. AdBlock Plus is not available on the Google Play Store but you can get the APK file from the AdBlock website by clicking on the button below.
Background apps and processes can severely reduce battery life. This is where Greenify comes into play. This free tool allows you to select apps which should be hibernated after you turn off your screen, thus greatly improving battery life. Additionally, the app offers a few useful tools like an option to make Doze mode enable faster and while Greenify works on non-rooted devices, the feature set is much bigger when your device is rooted.

Flashify is a tool which lets you download and install a recovery on your Android device and then integrates with it, enabling you to easily create a queue of files to flash including kernels, ROMs, apps and more. Flashify also comes with built-in backup functionality. The free version of this app limits you to 3 flashes per day but the restriction can be removed via an in-app purchase.
System App Remover
One of the biggest advantages of rooting a device is the ability to uninstall system apps. While you can do this through the file explorer, System App Remover will make it easier and faster. This tool will also let you move apps between internal storage and an external SD card, search for the specific APK file on the web, view app details and more. This is definitely a must-have tool.
