so I finally decided to root and I must say it was definitely worth it. I have root explorer and autostarts and managed to remove the bloatware and configure autostarts so only the stuff i need started up with the phone. So now that the major stuff is done, i have read about doing a factory reset to sort of start fresh with root. Does this make sense? Do certain apps need to be backed up? Is it necessary? Dangerous? Anyone ever do it? Ok so those are all my questions lol. Any help would be much appreciated!
