    I'm enjoying my new Maxx only issue I'm having is since I've rooted my Maxx I get 10 to 30 of these lil stars in my notification bar every day and also I get like these fake app store apps that just appear on my screens ...so how do I get all that to stop doing it? Is it an app I've downloaded or is it cause I've rooted it or what does anyone else ever get this . Thanks to anyone for their help

    Sounds like airpush ads. Something you downloaded is causing this. Download something like airblocker from the play store.

    It is not because you rooted your phone. Like tennvol said, it is being caused by an app that you have downloaded and installed on your phone. I have no idea which app that might be but there are apps in the PlayStore that will filter those adds from getting to your phone.
