15 best root apps for Android

Best for easy flashing: Flashify

Manually flashing your files could brick your device and will certainly give you more work to do. With Flashify you can sit back and let the app automatically do the flash lifting for you. This is a great app for those who really like to have a lot of customization and don’t want to spend endless hours getting get.

AndroidPIT best root app

With Flashify, you can flash your boot.img, recovery.img and zip files with ease. If you want to backup these to your local or cloud storage, the app automatically syncs them. You get automatic cloud synchronization between backups of devices and your desktop. The app allows you to restore kernel and recovery using an SDcard as well.

The app is free to use but you should be aware that you can only do three free flashes per day. If you have a lot of flashes you might want to consider purchasing a few more. If you want to spread them out so you don’t have to pay, you can add them to your queue and they can be flashed the next day.

If you’re rooted you need SuperSU. The two go hand in hand and while you can avoid SuperSU, there’s no reason that you would want to. It’s by far the best root assistant around, to the extent that many rootable kernels have you install SuperSU by default.

Essentially Super SU manages the apps you give superuser permissions to, but there’s a bunch of other cool stuff to discover as well.

AndroidPIT root apps SuperSU

Best app for removing bloatware: System App Remover

The second thing any rooted Android user should do is remove those pre-installed system apps – also known a bloatware – that come with most new phones and waste precious internal storage and system resources.

Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to recover the memory they’re occupying but you can remove them to stop the drain on your battery and CPU. System App Remover is a great tool for this.

Best app for audio control: Viper4AndroidFX

If you’re serious about the audio output of your rooted Android phone then Viper4Adnroid FX is the root app you want. It has too many features to list here, but you can go nuts with EQ mode settings, get near-lossless sound quality, optimize your speaker output, get Hi-Fi sound on your headphones and manage system audio settings to work on any third-party or system app.

Get the latest supported version from XDA Developers.

Best backup app: Titanium Backup

Backups are an essential part of any rooted phone owners repertoire. And backup solutions don’t get much better than Titanium Backup, especially once you’re rooted. Before you start delving into system mods, ROMs and other tweaks, it’s always a good idea to do a full backup before you proceed, just in case things go haywire. Titanium takes the pain out of making and managing backups.

AndroidPIT root apps Titanium Backup

Best app for battery optimization: Greenify

Greenify is pretty fantastic even without root, but with root privileges it really comes into its own. Greenify is an app-hibernation tool. It essentially lets you take control over when apps are awake (and consuming system resources) and when to put them to bed. The latest update even includes a ‘Shallow Hibernation’ engine for Android Marshmallow.

AndroidPIT root apps Greenify

Best app for system automation: Tasker

Tasker is the Lord of the Rings of root apps. It’s big, it’s complex and a little daunting, but if you can commit yourself to it fully, you’ll be repaid in full. Tasker is a full system automation app that can automate anything you do regularly with your Android phone, from setting up scheduled activities to automating tasks in apps.

AndroidPIT root apps tasker

Best app for recovering lost files: DiskDigger

We’re huge fans of recovering lost SMS, photos, files and data, and once you’re rooted there are even more solutions to the problem. If you’ve accidentally deleted photos, files or something else off your phone, DiskDigger can instantly recover it without losing a second (which is important in these situations).

AndroidPIT root apps diskdigger

Best app for battery management: BetterBatteryStats

Who doesn’t love a good battery stat? OK, maybe not most people, but I’ll assume that if you’re the type of Android owner who wants to root your phone, you might have an above-average interest in critical system things like battery consumption.

Better Battery Stats offers just that: a much more detailed and informative breakdown of what’s using your battery. A lot of this comes stock in Android Marshmallow but if you don’t have that update yet, this is the next best thing.

AndroidPIT root apps Better Battery Stats

Best root file manager: ES File Explorer

No root user should be without a quality file manager. There are a lot of solid file explorers around, such as Total Commander and Cabinet, but my personal favorite is still ES File Explorer.

You can also invest in a root-only file manager, but most file managers have a root explorer included. It’s really just a case of finding one that you like the look and feel of.

AndroidPIT ES File Explorer device system

Best app for multiple device owners: DataSync

DataSync is one of those voodoo features that you wouldn’t have believed existed a short time ago, but it’s a root ability that’s been around for a while. DataSync lets you sync your devices together so you can put one down and pick another up at exactly the same point.

That means that you can pick up your tablet when you get home and continue reading that book you were into on the train, plus a whole lot more.

AndroidPIT root apps DataSync

Best app for managing custom ROMs: ROM Manager

If you’re rooted and you want to start delving into the wonderful world of custom ROMs and kernels, then ROM Manager is a must-have root app. It’s basically the one app to rule them all, helping you manage recoveries, ROMs and kernels: basically everything a rooted tweaker could possibly need to keep track of.

There’s also a premium version with even more advanced features.

AndroidPIT root apps ROM Manager

Best app for screen recording: Rec

Screen recording may not be useful for the vast majority of Android owners, but for some, it’s critical. If you’re a gamer, bug-catcher or general go-to-guy for all your friends with Android problems, then being able to screen record is a real bonus. And Rec is the best root app for that.

Watch your descriptive language skills disappear as you say everything with recorded actions rather than words.

AndroidPIT root apps Rec

Best app for CPU and kernel tweaks: Device Control

If you’re rooted you now have the ability to over-clock or under-volt your Android. These terms basically mean pumping more power into your CPU or limiting the amount of juice your battery uses. Device Control gives you these options and plenty more, including sound and display management, a build.prop editor and Tasker integration.

AndroidPIT root apps device control

Best app for managing internal storage: SD Maid

Internal storage is always going to present problems, especially for those of us with a rather obsessive relationship to new apps and modifications. With root access, SD Maid takes control of any ghost files or folders left remaining after you’ve deleted data.

It also comes with a file browser, search tool and app management options to help you free up every inch of internal storage without wasting a KB.

Common Google Play Store error codes and how to fix them

androidpit play store 1

The solutions for the errors described below are based on the experiences of the editors as well as readers and moderators from the forum. Some of these solutions also come courtesy of a very helpful XDA Developers forum thread. If you encounter any other problems with Google Play, feel free to share your experiences in the comments and forum.

Google Play Store Error DF-BPA-09 ‘Error Processing Purchase’


Google Play Error Processing Purchase DF-BPA-09 happens quite often when trying to download an app. This problem won’t go away if you simply try downloading again, so you’ll need to go into the settings.


The problem is not due to individual users, but to Google Play itself, so we’re hoping it will be fixed in the near future. In the meantime, here is what you can do:

  • Go into the Settings of your device
  • Tap on Apps or Applications Manager (the name varies depending on your device).
  • Swipe to the All column.
  • Scroll down until you see Google Services Framework
  • Finally, choose Clear data and then OK.

If this doesn’t work, go on to the Google Play site on your PC and install the app that is giving you issues on your smartphone or tablet from there. When you go back to your device, the install should work.


Google Play Store Error Code 194


Error caused when trying to download games or apps from the Google Play Store.


One fix for this issue is to clear the cache data for Google Play Services and the Google Play Store.

  2. Scroll across to All and then down to the Google Play Store app.
  3. Open the app details and tap the Force stop button.
  4. Next tap on the Clear data button.

Now repeat the process above but replace Google Play Store with Google Play Services at step two and then attempt your download again.

If that doesn’t work, don’t worry, the issue has now been resolved and a fix is being rolled out in the next version of the Play Store app. Just make you have the latest Google Play Store APK and you shouldn’t experience this error again.

Best keyboard apps for Android: type faster and more accurately

androidpit best android keyboards 1

Best for maximizing screen space: Minuum

The Minuum keyboard isn’t your typical QWERTY keyboard. Although the positions of the letters are similar, the entire alphabet appears on the same line. This means that Minuum is one of the smallest Android keyboards, but it’s also deceptively simple to use.

While it may not be the fastest – and it’s quite easy to make mistakes – Minuum is a great keyboard for those who want to be able to see more messages from their conversation on the screen while they type a reply. Because the keyboard is so close to the bottom of the screen, you are able to see more above and can get more out of your conversation because you don’t have to scroll up as much to answer a question or address something.

The keyboard is in one line at the bottom of the screen and is staggered so there are less mistakes made. It comes in the familiar QWERTY style with all letters reading from left to right as they appear on a normal keyboard and not alphabetically.

androidpit best android keyboards 3

Best for speed: Fleksy

Fleksy delivers a large keyboard and simple gestures to provide record-breaking typing speeds. With a swipe up or down you can correct words from a list of recommendations, while a back swipe will delete a word, and a swipe forward will add a period.

It’s an efficient system, which makes Fleksy our top recommendation for fans of standard typing rather than swiping. This flips the normal narrative about standard keyboards being replaced by the next generation of swipe keyboards. This one performs quite well even with words that are difficult to spell.

There’s also a surprisingly capable ‘invisible’ keyboard plugin, which is cool to show off to friends. You can also create a custom keyboard to be more elaborate in you messages by sending GIFs. You can customize your personal keyboard experience with over 40 themes.

androidpit best android keyboards 2

Best for artificial intelligence: SwiftKey

Possibly the most well-known keyboard app on the Google Play Store, SwiftKey has one of the finest typing interfaces available on Android. Like Swype, you can type in the traditional manner or use swiping (which SwiftKey calls ‘flow’), and both methods function equally well.

SwiftKey didn’t become so popular for no good reason, it has many features that make it stand out from other apps. The app uses artificial intelligence to learn your writing style and adapt your suggested words. This includes emojis as well. The interface is also quite clean.

There is a variety of size and layout options including an intriguing “thumb” mode which creates a space between the left and right half of the keyboard. In addition, SwiftKey is excellent at managing multiple languages and is one of the only keyboards on which you don’t need to manually swap between them. Just choose the languages you want to use in the settings, and text prediction and special characters will work for all languages automatically. It’s very clever.

AndroidPIT best keyboard apps 1629

Best for simplicity: Google Keyboard

Google’s Keyboard has a simple and clean interface that just works. Material design themes, a ton of languages, text-to-speech, gesture typing – it has a lot to offer. You can download this keyboard for free in the Play Store with no in-app purchases. It’s compatible with devices running Android 4.4 and up, so there’s no good reason not to give Google Keyboard a go.

Google Keyboard uses its special speech-to-text system to make voice dictation a whole lot easier. It’s able to take advantage of the Android advancements in voice recognition. You can still run into some problems with the keyboard recognizing some of your words but most of the time it’s correct.

Like with SwiftKey, Google Keyboard learns from what you write. This is not just in the messages you write but across Google services. That means when you use other apps Google Keyboard gets plenty of information on how you write and what it can do to make further suggestions.

AndroidPIT best keyboard apps 1625

Best for emojis: TouchPal

TouchPal is heavily focused on emojis/emoji art/smileys/pictures, but it also features over 85 languages, swipe/glide functionality, cloud prediction and contextual prediction. Don’t let its cutesy Play Store description and branding put you off, there is far more to TouchPal than colors and themes; it’s a straight-up keyboard for messaging quickly and comfortably, and should easily make its way onto any best keyboard list.

You really have to love emojis to enjoy this keyboard. Your recipients will also need to really have a tolerance for the ridiculous amount of these that you send. They come in blocks sometimes 10 x 10. These texts are quite expressive as well as being funny at times.

You are able to put huge amounts of emoticon art with some really neat themes but despite the complexity of these it is really easy to use. You can quickly find a block with about 100 emoji characters that really expresses what you’re trying to convey.

AndroidPIT best keyboard apps 1626

Swype is a popular keyboard which employs the swipe (or glide) method for character input. Swype learns from your messaging habits, automatically updating its dictionary with new phrases that you type. It creates automatic spaces between words to speed up your workflow and adapts to common mistakes you make.

Though swiping is an acquired taste, if you want the best example of it, you should look no further than Swype. You might want to try it out in a blank Google Doc before you get started messaging your contacts. It could take you a few hours to get proficient enough to send messages at a decent rate.

While swiping is great for Swype, the normal keyboard works quite well also. There is a decent auto-correct and the keyboard is simple enough to use if you get sick of swiping. If you permanently get tired of swiping you should probably try one of the other apps on this list.

AndroidPIT best keyboard apps 1621

Best for GIFs: Go Keyboard

Go Keyboard is an excellent all-around keyboard with great functions from many of the apps on this list. You can easily swipe if you so choose. There are some intuitive suggestions for auto-fill and auto correct. The keyboard is also very stylish with a minimalist approach.

The GIF keyboard is the real strength of Go Keyboard and shows great foresight by the company. GIF language is becoming popular and could replace many elements of our written language within messaging. This is a similar trend to emojis replacing large chunks of written expression of emotion. GIF language contains subtleties that text doesn’t capture, and in a much more entertaining way.

With Go Keyboard it’s really simple to get going on using GIFs in your messages. You can choose from themes like Star Wars, Leonardo DiCaprio or the Oscars. You could also sort through emotions and expressions like LOL, excited or tears.

OnePlus 3 price, release date, specs and rumors

OnePlus 3 price and release date

CNET en Espanol got an exclusive interview with OnePlus Co-founder Carl Pei. While he didn’t disclose any details about the design of the OnePlus 3, Mr Pei did disclose an estimated launch date; the end of the second quarter of 2016.

one plus 3 leaked render 1

There’s no information on the OnePlus 3 price yet, but we would expect it to offer similarly good value to its predecessors.

OnePlus 3 design

Some early conceptual renders of the OnePlus 3 design were leaked in December 2015. They leave much to the imagination, but it would appear that the company has discarded its trademark sandstone black back in favor of black brushed steel. What the sheer white face on the left-hand render below means is anyone’s guess.

The renders do clearly show that the fingerprint scanner no longer sits at the base of the front of the device, leading to speculation over how the company plans for the new device to be unlocked. It’s possible that it could employ iris-recognition technology or even an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor embedded below the screen.

one plus 3 leaked render 2

Excitingly, front-facing speakers can clearly be seen below the screen.

Earlier, in December, a concept video leaked showing the possible design of the OnePlus 3. It gives us a glimpse of slick, curvy device with extremely thin bezels. The video further hints that the OnePlus 3 might go with a brushed metal back, and we can also see a dual-tone LED flash and USB Type-C charging.

On February 19, the first purported real-life image of the OnePlus 3 leaked. It appears more like a dummy unit, but it bears some similarities to the concept video above, although the bezels are thicker, there are fewer cuts and curves in the design, and a very different UI from previous OnePlus devices. It’s still early days for the OnePlus 3, so it’s probably best not to put too much stock in this image even being legitimate, let alone reflective of the final design.

OnePlus 3 leaked image 1

OnePlus 3 specs

A screenshot has surfaced that gives us our first solid look at specs for the OnePlus 3. The AnTuTu Benchmark screenshot shows some heft but not unsurprising hardware choices from manufacturer OnePlus. The OnePlus 3 (model number A3000) could pack a 1080p HD display, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Unsurprisingly, this should all be powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset coupled with an Adreno 530 GPU. 

Previous models in the series used the cursed Snapdragon 810, despite its overheating problems, but the new generation chip should solve this issue and allow for better performance.

We’d also expect the new phone to employ a USB type C port, as its predecessor did.

13% off a VoCore mini Linux computer board


The VoCore mini computer board can be used for a wide variety of different tech projects. You can make a tiny router, invent a new device, build a motherboard or even repurpose old speakers into smart wireless versions. The possibilities are endless with this compact Linux machine.

Because it’s so small, it gives you some great options. You can use it as a standalone device running OpenWrt or you could use it as an embedded component of a larger system. If you have a decent understanding of how electronics work, you can really make some cool things.

This great computer board has other functions as well. You can use it as a fully-functional 2.4 GHz Wi-Firouter; let it extend your ethernet and USB interfaces with the dock; use it as a general purpose low-power Com for loT applications and many more.

Huawei P9 price, release date, specs and rumors

Huawei Honor p8 7 mate's mate 7

Huawei P9 release date and price

The official release date of the Huawei P9 is yet unknown, but famous leakster Evan Blass tweeted a possible date for the release. He wrote that he was told the number of days until the release of the P9. He did not provide the total number of days, but that it would be on either on April 6 or April 5. We will let you know as we get more information.

Huawei teased a launch event taking place in Berlin, Germany, on March 9. The post shows a glass of beer being poured, with text below the image reading “Beer”. It seems that alongside the launch, we can expect some beer.

Huawei p9

Leaks from the Chinese website MyDrivers show possible prices for the four reported devices from the Huawei P9 series. The standard P9 is reported to be US$499, the Pro US$599, the Max US$699 and the Lite US$299. Jump to ourspecs section for more information on the leaks.

Ahead of the launch of the Huawei P9, previously reported by AndroidPIT to be on April 6, a possible ‘Lite’ version of the device has been revealed by serial leaker Evan Blass. This model is said to be a stripped-down version of the flagship P9.

The P9 ‘Lite’ model supposedly remains at 5.2-inches, has a full HD 1080p resolution and 3 GB RAM, but sees a cutback in its processor, which won’t be the Kirin 950. It will also reportedly lack an all-metal body and rear dual camera, as well as a fingerprint scanner.

Huawei P9 specs

The Huawei P9 seems likely to feature the new Kirin 955 processor – a chip that Huawei itself is developing. Leakedbenchmarks suggest that this is even faster than Samsung’s powerful Exynos 7420, meaning the Huawei P9 could be one of the fastest phones on Android.

In early March, VentureBeat reported on a device that they had been trusted with temporarily by an anonymous insider. They reported that the device bore a whopping 3,900-mAh battery, which powered a Kirin 950 chip, Mali-T880 GPU and 3 GB of RAM.

They also confirmed the presence of dual-rear camera setup.

camara p9

In early January, a leak (via Android Headlines) gave us a look at all three variants of the P9: the P9, P9 Lite and P9 Max. The rumor suggests they will sport 5-, 5.2- and 6.8-inch displays respectively, echoing the P8 line.

Of most interest is the suggestion that the devices will pack in a whopping 6 GB of RAM. This, alongside the Kirin 950 processor would make the range a formidable entry onto the 2016 market for Huawei.

A later leak, coming through a source for VentureBeat, added a fourth device to the lineup, a “feature-enhanced” model rumored to carry the largest screen of all the variants, more RAM and storage, and a dual-lens, dual-sensor camera. This camera configuration is said to carry forward features such as post-capture refocus, simulated aperture adjustment and filter application, which were brought in on the Honor 6 Plus, and to add some new features to the mix as well.

Huawei shared the first official images of the P9 on March 22. The shots are close-ups, giving little away about the overall design, but they do confirm a dual-camera setup and a rounded rectangle design for the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

huawei p9 promo images

One of Huawei’s presidents was photographed using a device with a dual rear camera setup and fingerprint scanner on the device’s rear. It matches exactly what we have seen in previous leaks, all but confirming the appearance of the P9’s rear panel and camera configuration.

huawei p9 leaks 2

Other interesting elements include what could be a stereo speaker system on the bottom of the P9 and a front-facing flash.

Reports concerning the four possible versions of the Huawei P9 were substantiated by the Chinese leaker website MyDrivers, which also show possible specs of the devices. As we already reported, the versions could be called the P9, P9 Max, P9 Lite and P9 Pro

The four versions could all have a 12 MP dual rear camera and the Max reportedly is 8 MP, there is no word yet on the front cameras of the other devices.

The report states the Pro and Max have a Hilisilicon Kirin 955 octa-core processor with 4 GB RAM and the P9 the Hilisilicon Kirin 950 with 3 GB RAM. The Lite version could have a Snapdragon 650 processor with 2 GB RAM. The Max and Pro versions could come with 64 GB storage, the P9 with 32 GB and the Lite with 16 GB.

Leaks of the display were also given by MyDrivers. The P9 and Pro versions could come with 5.2-inch 1080p displays. The Max could come with a 6.2-inch QHD and the Lite with a still impressive 5-inch 1080p display.

Live images leaked on February 29 purporting to show the device’s metal frame. We can see the power button and volume rocker resting on the right side of the frame, and, most interestingly, the base of the frame shows space for a USB Type-C port, a welcome upgrade, securing faster charging speeds for the P9.

We hope the P9 will have a larger battery than the P8, because the 2,600 mAh cell in the P8 is just too small for a Full HD handset. Huawei’s EMUI software is also in need of an overhaul. Though it is, technically, one of the more unusual Android software skins, it’s also one of the least impressive (read our thoughts on it in our Huawei P8 review).

Huawei P9 design

The freshest Huawei P9 leak shows us more detail only a matter of days ahead of the device’s launch. Posted onMyDrivers.com, the collection of images (see two below) shows the P9 from various angles. Although not the best quality, these pics give us yet another glimpse at the clean design and rear dual-camera setup. AndroidPIT will be at the Huawei P9 launch next Wednesday, so we’ll have all the details for you then.

A sketch leaked via Chinese site CNMO shows the rumored design of the Huawei P9. Its heavily rounded corners make it differ from the P8 somewhat, but the most noticeable difference is the inclusion of a physical home button, which hasn’t been seen before on a P-series device before.

The inclusion of a home button could be linked to the rumor that the P9 will also be the first P-series device to feature a fingerprint scanner, but then Huawei has previously embedded those in the rear of the device, like on the Mate 8, for example.

Giz China also leaked what is says are press images of the P9. The photos are clear enough to give a great idea of what the P9 could look like. Although there are five phones in the picture, we can only see four colors; pink, silver, gold and white.

Honor 7 Android update: latest news

Honor 7 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

The Marshmallow update for the Honor 7 is finally rolling out after months of waiting. @HonorEU announced the newsin a tweet on March 25 that the Marshmallow update was being released OTA. This is good news for owners who live in Europe, and we expect other regions to also receive the update soon, if it hasn’t already surfaced.

In previous news, Honor rolled out a Marshmallow beta for UK owners a couple of months ago. A sign-up pagewas provided to allow Honor 7 owners to participate in the test. The beta version of the software included the latest version (4.0) of Huawei’s own user interface, EMUI.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active release date, price, specs, features

AndroidPIT Samsung galaxy s7 REVIEW 2

The Galaxy S7 series could yet add another device to the family. This would be similar to last year’s release of the Samsung S6 series, which included the S6, S6 Edge and S6 Active. In fact, the model numbers of the S6 Active and S7 Active seem to be in succession.

A Zuaba (Indian site for export/import data) listing carrying the model number of SM-G891A was spotted and it could be assumed that this is the Galaxy S7 Active model number because the Galaxy S6 Active had the model number of SM-G890A.

This was reported by serial leakster Evan Blass who tweeted that AT&T is testing this device.

More recently, the name Galaxy S7 Active was spotted on a change-log of Samsung’s Level app by SAM Mobile. The log can be viewed below and clearly shows The Galaxy S7 Active after the S7 and before the S7 Edge.

We expect the Galaxy S7 Active to have better weatherproofing than the rest of its S7 family but beyond that we can only make speculations based of its predecessor. The S6 Active was an AT&T exclusive (which is why AT&T was reportedly testing the S7 Active) and had the same weatherproofing as the S7 and S7 Edge do now, the IP68. It would then stand to reason that the new version will improve upon this and we could see an even better water and dust proof device.
