  1. Wireless Tether for Root Users : Install this application to create a WiFi adhoc network or a Bluetooth Hotspot on your Android phone to share your 3G or 2G network with your devices such as your Laptop / Netbook  or iPod Touch . It provides functionality which Mi-fi provides.
  2. Titanium Backup ★ root : Install this application to take backup of your installed free / paid applications, and its data, settings etc. to your SD card. It is quite useful if you have experienced the pain of installing all your applications again and over. You can also easily transfer all your applications  to a new phone with the help of  Titanium Backup.
  3. CacheMate for Root Users Free : Installing this application will help you clear all the cache of applications from your rooted Android phone, thus freeing up space and deleting some erroneous cache that may build up over time.
  4. SetCPU for Root Users or Overclock Widget : These applications can overclock or underclock your rooted phones. You can also set governor (like ondemand, powersaver, userspace, performance etc.) which will govern how frequency switching takes place. It can help you in optimizing your phone for battery life or increased speed and performance for CPU intensive tasks like Angry Birds !
  5. Webkey (ROOT REQUIRED) : Install this application and use this app to control your Android phone from your PC or a web browser on any device(iPad, iPod, another phone, Tablet, PS3 etc.).

  6. Market Enabler : Install this application to gain access to markets of other service providers. Like if you are in UK you can access market of T-Mobile USA using this application. Applications restricted to certain countries/ service providers can be accessed this way. This app fakes the SIM data and gets reset with a phone restart.
