    HELP with recently rooted Merc

    Ok I've just recently rooted my merc through fast root with the CWM recovery. Well, now that's its rooted, I have no idea what to do. I was told of all the wondrous things that could be done to a rooted phone, but I'm not sure what exactly I CAN do. Can someone tell me the cool things I can do with my merc now?

    I've got the revokster rom installed by the way. I wanted to over clock it but I'm not sure if its worth it. Will it just help with lag or will it help browsing speed as well? I want to also remove cricket bloatware and get the ics lock screen. I'm aware of the changing to ".bak" method but don't know how to access the file via root explorer

    You see them apps in your phone you DON'T want to see? Delete em. Is your phone not running at full speed? Tweak the ram! .basically install a custom rom. Try oriax revokster rom. It works great.! Also you can get rid of them ads the free apps have. Change your boot animation so instead of "Cricket" it can be something you like!. Read and you will be addicted to doing these things

    Thanks Salas but can you explain how to do these things? I already have the revokster rom..however when I went to root explorer, it told me I couldn't delete them..when I attempted to install the .zip for the boot animation using the CWM recovery, it said install failed. I updated the firmware a while ago so could that have any effect? And as far as my phone running full speed, I have SetCPU installed and its running at Max. But I was under the impression that if I OC'd it...it would not only reduce lag, but also increase browser speeds. In sorry for all of the questions everyone.

    PAE3D, ICS Merc



    titanium backup
    --- freeze those apps you don't like (even delete them if you wish)

    rom toolbox pro
    --- as with titanium backup, you can freeze/delete apps
    --- has a built in ad stopper (but i use adaware, so i dont know how the rom toolbox adblocker is)
    --- change fonts and other yummy good stuff
    --- properly set up with rom manager, rom toolbox pro can become your one stop tool for customizing your phone
    --- also has an overclock utility (i didnt play with it much tho)

    adaware (theres also another one by bigtincan that is pretty good as well)
    --- block those pesky ads from ever popping up

    use oriax's revokster ROM + v6 supercharger + iCe themes = awesome merc
    OR
    v6 supercharger + holo launcher (for that ICS goodness everyone likes) = another awesome merc

    search thread to thread, forum to forum for the combination you like and tweak to your personal specification

    BUT: anything you do to your Merc is at your own risk, YMMV. ALWAYS keep a backup just in case things go a lil' haywire (and it does if you tinker a lot)

    best of all---- ENJOY your phone the way YOU want it to be

    on that note..... i need a new project phone, lol
