Root Tools allows you to customize the app and make it your own. You can change the entire look of it through theme settings in the main settings menu. Through settings you can also manage backups, access android hidden testing menu, enable or disable your boot animation, turn on/off camera shutter sounds and configure sysctl.conf to maximize performance for more advanced users.
Root Tools is a fun project I started for custom ROMs and is turning into much more. I hope you enjoy the app :)
Boot animation install problems??
1) Try going into Root Tools settings (click menu > settings) and set the install location manually. (most phones use "/data/local/bootanimation.zip" or "/system/media/bootanimation.zip"
2) You may have a bad download. Try removing the file on your sdcard in the roottools folder.
Remember: if something isn't working email me first before rating.
If you like the changes then please re-rate. Please don't rate bad for the 15 minute refund policy. Complain to google instead. If something isn't working email me before complaining where I cannot respond to you.

IT WILL NOT DRAIN YOUR BATTERY.
Avoid breaking your power button. Just shake your phone and lock or unlock it.
IT WILL NOT DRAIN YOUR BATTERY. Have I said it already? My main focus when I implemented the app was on not draining the battery, and it won't. Let it run for a day and then check the app's battery consumption. It should be minimal (as opposed to other "Shake to turn the screen on and off" and "Shake to Lock and Unlock" apps on Google Play.
This is the FREE version of the app "Shake Screen On Off". On the PRO version, you can do everything you can do on the FREE version, plus:
1 - no ads are displayed.
2 - the user can choose to start the app automatically after the device is turned on.
3 - the app can be set to unlock the screen automatically when the screen is turned back on.
4 - the app can use the proximity sensor to avoid accidentally turning on the screen when the device is on a pocket, for instance.
5 - The device can be set to vibrate every time the screen is turned on or off.
Due to the fact that the app needs admin privileges to run, if you want to uninstall it you must do it by clicking on the uninstall button inside the app. If you try to uninstall the app using the standard Android App Manager, the uninstall button will be disabled. Just remember that to uninstall the app, you must access the app itself.
Unfortunately, on some devices the app will not be able to turn the screen back on (when the user shakes the phone) after the screen is turned off. It's a hardware limitation of these devices, and there is nothing that can be done on the software side to avoid it. For instance, I've tested the app on the 'LG Nexus 4' and it works flawlessly; on the other hand, on the 'Samsung Galaxy Ace' the accelerometer sensors are turned off the moment the screen goes off. If that is the case on your device, please send me an email (there is a button on the app to do it) explaining what is happening on your specific case. The app will add the model and manufacturer of your device to the body of your email (please do not erase this information) and I will remove your device from the list of available devices on Google Play. Thank you very much for your help!
Prevent phone from sleeping - necessary to wake the phone up after it's screen is turned off.
View network connections and full network access - only necessary on the FREE version, to be able to show ads (non-intrusive ads, only displayed when the user open the main screen of the app).

To read new text message, without a single touch of the screen or a button.
No need to press a button,
No need to unlock the phone typing pin code or swiping symbols,
No need to drag down notification bar,
No need to click messaging apps or any notifications.
The app uses the G-sensor to determine actual tilt of the phone and if is in a preset position, turns the screen on, unlocks the phone and displays new text message (if any). The app displays only one message at a time (the most recent unread message).
If there is no new text messages the app turns on the screen and unlocks it only. You can use it to display any other app or screen previously left opened. You can even disable the feature to display new text message after automated turn on.
Unlocking the phone by tilt only is potentially unsafe. From that reason the app is able to work in selected areas only (using Wi-Fi networks). You can define which Wi-Fi network is allowed and/or which is denied. So, the app may work only in a specified location or except specified location.
Aside of the G-sensor, the app can use proximity sensor to prevent from accidental unlocks (i.e. while the phone is in a pocket)
Unlock position is fully configurable as long as the tolerance of that position.
To perform successful unlock, the phone must be IN the unlock position for at least half second, and its previous position should be OTHER than the unlock position for at least half second. If proximity sensor is in use, the phone can not be covered during unlocking by tilt. Additionally, the currently used Wi-Fi network cannot be denied.
The proximity sensor can be used also to lock the screen back after successful unlock (touchless lock option). This feature allows you to pull the phone out of pocket, read new text message (or watch other apps) then push the phone back to pocket. All without a single touch of the screen or button, using one hand only!
New - "Power efficient - continuous mode" added in version 1.4. Read more bellow.
Because of battery lifetime impact the app is armed only for a given time from the last phone activity. This time is called "Sensors standby time" and is restored every time you turn screen off pressing power button manually or receiving a text message.
If your last activity with the phone (or last text message) was 2 hours ago, and the "Sensors standby time" is set to 1 hour only, the app will NOT be able to turn the screen on and unlock it because sensors are no longer powered and your phone is in a sleep mode saving battery lifetime.
The app is a background service which must be started by the user. It will not start itself (i.e. when rebooting the phone)
Occasionally you may experience some unwanted screen locks (for example when pressing HOME button after successful unlock). This is because 3rd party application can not perform full unlock of the phone programmatically (as you can do manually, swiping symbol or typing pin code).
The differences between full and free version are:
- Free version works for 12 hours then disable the Tilt & Read service and displays "Purchase" dialog. The service can be re-enabled easily and the app can work for another 12 hours. There are no limitations in the number of times the service was re-enabled but purchasing full version is strongly recommended.
- Full version requires license, if not licensed then works as free version. Full version do not display any "purchase" buttons, "free" labels and can work indefinitely.
The "Power efficient - continuous mode" is available at the end of "Standby time" scale. It allows you to use the app 24/7 with a minimal impact to the battery lifetime!
