Lately my battery felt like it was dying even faster than usual. Also the music players have been choking and stuttering which is unacceptable. That’s why yesterday I was doing some research for android apps to create a whitelist for what apps have permission to use the cell signal to connect to the mobile network. I found one, but I needed to root my phone in order to do it.

CUT TO: Me still at my desk playing with my phone at 3:00 AM. Thankfully I had no problems at all. The only problem was that I couldn’t stop. I seriously opened Pandora’s box, but already I’m seeing the benefits of rooting my phone. The new custom ROM I flashed my phone with has some pretty sweet options and I haven’t even had time to play with it much.
