Hello to all, I am a newbie to the forum and to rooting the Proclaim and was wondering if I might get a few questions that I have cleared up in my mind? I want to root my proclaim to get rid of some of the junk that was put on it that uses my battery up in a hurry. I have turned everything off that I am allowed to turn off. But there is a bunch of stuff left that just sits in the background running all the time, whether you are using the app or not, like Accu Weather, email ( which I don't even have configured), and I can not use Samsung Kies unless the phone is unlocked. I don't really have any real reason to root other than these. I have lots of storage and memory for what I do with the phone. As a matter of fact if I could get rid of the junk, I wouldn't care if the phone was rooted or not.
Anyway, here are my questions:
1.) what to expect after rooting, provided everything goes as planned ? Do the menu's change, do I have to re-install any apps that I have downloaded ? Will the phone act any different than it does now.
2.) Can I ever restore my phone back to normal condition like it is now?
3.) Will I have to install any apps even if I don't plan on playing with the ROM.
I have been reading for about 2 weeks on the forum, trying to learn all that I can learn by piecing bits here and there together and have got enough knowledge to root without much problem. But in all my reading I have not found how to un-root the phone, or what to expect once the phone is rooted.
Any honest and truthful advice, suggestion, urls, or pointer are appreciated. I want to learn as much about this subject as I can and I don't need a paper weights for my desk.
Thank you for reading my post.
