    Got bored and made an app to help me manage certain root options. It's still in its early testing so the usual warnings: Make a backup. I'm not responsible for any damage caused. You've been warned. Anyways having said that the app is in its early developmental stages and I need testers to help me find bugs/to let me know if it is working properly. I would appreciate any help and I would really value input as to what other features should be added. I would like to release it to the market but I feel it's too early. I have only tested it on an original Motorola Droid running cyanogen mod. Since the app is still in testing there isn't a lot of explanation in the app about what things do. I'll break that down now:

    - Startup Scripts:

    Lets you enable certain scripts to run during start up. The first script is the SD Card Speed Fix to increase sd card read performance. The second script is one to remove logging. I've noticed a performance increase when logging is disabled. More scripts will be added in the future and maybe I'll make the option to make custom scripts.

    - Application Management:

    Shows all installed applications. Gives you the option to enable or disable them. If an app is highlighted in blue it is currently frozen. I have disabled the delete app feature for now until I can properly set it up.

    - Reboot Options:

    Nothing too special just certain ways to reboot the phone.

    To install download the attached file and use a file manager to remove the .zip at the end. Then install using a file browser from the phone.

    I think u should build on this but keep it very simple. I like how u open the app and it's very straightforward. The RAK selection should probably be more defined. I'll play with it a bit and put it thru the tests. Very good job for a boredom project!
