I have been a Android fan since i got my first device the Motorola Droid X2 many years back and have been hooked on hacking them ever since. Currently i am using a LG G4 but this changes monthly some times with new devices coming out all the time. I am a strong family man with 5 kids and awesome wife. You may not believe this but i do not work in the tech industry but do HVAC heating ventilation & air conditioning on big commercial buildings.  Fun fact i can shoot a quarter at 200 yards with my Remmington 700 PSP tactical rifle with bipod and Nikon Scope.

I manage Quick Fix smartphone & tablet repair in New Jersey, for 2 years now. I’m 26 years old and I’ve been an Android fan since I got my hands on the LG Optimus M from MetroPCS.

Thats the first Android phone I owned and also the first Android phone I rooted. Rooting and modding are the main reasons I’m an Android fan. I use root access to gain functionality, especially for Tasker, open mic+,  autovoice and google search api mods. I also develop Android apps, using MIT’s engine called Blocks Editor.

I have two apps on the Market, Quickfixphone which is a mobile business card app with information on my store and prices. The other app I built is for a local New Jersey singer who goes by AshleyJonesProject, and she is an amazing singer and songwriter. Since Creating both apps, I’m now looking into the gaming aspect of the app world, so if you’re a graphics nerd msg me. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank RootJunky, Thomas, himself for building what we all know to be RootJunky.com to be and having me here to write for all of you, thank you bro bro for all your hard work.

I was a little late to the Android game and got started with the DROID RAZR on Verizon; Motorola bringing back the RAZR brand is the real reason I left the iPhone behind in a blaze of glory. My first foray into modifying devices was actually from fixing a mistake I made. I debloated the RAZR and then I had to take an OTA update. Lots of research found out I was missing an .APK I deleted of course and a forum user on DroidRZR.com found me the file I needed. It’s been a thrill ride since then with my DROID RAZR Utility based originally off of the Kindle Fire tool! The rest is history.

I’ve gotten a little slower on the Development side of things, focusing more on the occasional script or utility, but not nearly as much as I used to. Now a days I’m going back to school after working at a cell phone retailer working towards a Computer Science degree.

My current devices on hand are the Nexus 6, HTC One M8 GPE, and Moto X 2013. However, we all know those are bound to change!

Writing reviews for devices, or just my thoughts on them, has been a fun new experiment for me and I’ve really enjoyed it so far!

You can follow me on twitter @mattlgroff (http://twitter.com/mattlgroff) where I post most often and sometimes on Google+ as well (http://google.com/+MattGroff).

  7. Hi I followed you instructions on rooting and removing screen ad on my Amazon 5th Gen fire.can you please do a guide on stopping ota updates.I’ve looked on internet and on the xda site but can’t find anything.thanks

  8. Hello rootjunky, great website I have been a follower of your videos and firmware files for a few years now, I’m a big fan I have a bit of a dilemma that I was hoping you could help me with. I am not new to rooting and just need a little advice and or your help installing the correct version of twrp to my Verizon lg g pad 10.1 (VK700 not the WiFi edition) I obtained root through king root and also want to swap it out for supersu I see in twrp manager that twrp is available for the e9wifi varient of this tablet however I am doubtful if it will work properly due to the cellular radios on my device. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated thank you in advance and keep up the great work.

  9. I installed the google play for amazon kindle fire fifth generation and it didn’t work. I keep getting an error message. Well, I uninstalled it (or so I thought) and went to try a fresh install. When I run it through root junky, it tells me that it’s failed because it already exists. I went to ES File Explorer and google account manager, google play services, google play store, and google services framework are all listed. I tried to uninstall and it says complete, but they remain listed. Even after I reboot. I am side loading, my device is not rooted. How do I uninstall these so I can reinstall them? Also, it said that it removed the ads, it did not. I’m not worried about that part of the process, but thought I would include this in my comment in case it is relevent to what is going on. I would like to uninstall and reinstall the google play store. BTW, imn case this is relevant, when I try to open any of the google play apps,. it says ‘sorry cannot start this application’

  10. Dude, you’re amazing. I really love your site and it has been super helpful. Especially the SuperTool for the Fire Tablet has saved me so many nerves. Is there any way to donate to you, to show my appreciation?

  11. HELP!!!!!

    I couldn’t get the drivers installed on my desk top, so I tried my lap top. Both run XP. I got to where the Amazon Fire V. 5 has a blank screen with “FASTBOOT mode” in the corner. The PC said waiting for device and didn’t change for half an hour. I aborted the process on the PC but the tablet is stuck with the blank screen and won’t even turn off. I have pressed and held the on-off button with no effect.

    What do I do next?

  12. Hi Tom,
    Been watching your videos for the last 3 hrs and try to learn how to root my android. My android is HTC Desire 609 dual sim. I’ve tried Kingroot, Kingoroot (desktop version) but never successfull. I was wondering if you know how to root my android because it has a lot of bloatware, batt drains so fast & running very very slow. I want to install custom ROM.
    Currently it’s running on
    Android version 4.1.2;
    software number 1.48.500.4;
    HTC Sense version 5.0;
    Kernel version 3.4.0-ga7f4b69 and @ABM101 #1SMP PREEMPT
    Build number 1.48.500.4 CL272675 release-keys

    Very much appreciate if you can help.

  17. Hey, I watched your video on how to bypass google account on Nexus 6p and it helped a lot. I’m running in a bit of a problem though, cause I can get in the Settings and do the factory reset, but it doesn’t erase the previous Google account. I have tried setting a new user account, but it throws me back to the owner and doesn’t let me add one. Any ideas? Thanks.

  18. Hey Tom!
    I have been trying to download the ADB USB super tool, but when I try to change it on device manager, I have a window that pops up stating that I don’t have a compatible driver.
    I am using Kindle Fire 5.1.2 update 5th generation .
    Do you know what I may need to do to fix the process?
    Thanks in advance!

  19. You guys are great! I need some help with a couple of root projects I am working on. I would like to hire you guys if you would take me. It would be great to have you guys available when situations come up now and in the future. Please contact me back at my email if you can…..I appreciate it greatly.

  24. hello guys. My name is qqtip2. I am a bit novice to coding but want to know how to re-write code. More specific

    The Samsung Note 5, S6,S7 & Edge models no longer support customized fonts. I did not know this until a month ago. The was a iFont fix, but it seems that it is not working now. I had a font that I liked and was using it but could not change from that font onto any other fonts that I had installed. I began to get curious why i could not make a change and then did a reboot with the Samsung fonts. Then I tried to make a change back and was stuck like everyone else. I guess since my customized font was under the new marshmallow code is there any way to put them back on there under the restricted code for Samsung without root or breaking the base-band? It was working that way when I had marshmallow loaded on it.??? I would like a better answer or a way to do this. I think this will at least help the Samsung community. i am willing to get proficient and write to the how to if I can be directed.

  25. i baught a sansung galaxy s6 and i need to login with the old google account to get in and i dont know it and can you help me and i looked at one of your videos and got to the part where you get to the homescreen but dont see no camera option.

  28.

  29. Tom please help me I need to know when there will be a way to root an amazon kindle fire that is upgraded to the Fire OS

  30. I get “null error device not found” when I try to root my kindle fire 5th generation tablet on your Amazon Fire Tablet Tool. Can you help me out please.

  31. Hello,
    I accidentally erased everything on my Amazon Fire 5th gen. Everything! When booting up I only get to the Amazon System Recovery. How can I get an OS back on the tablet. My computer does not see it when I plug it in. I installed the drivers previously, because I used the root tool you guys have. Any help would be appreciated.

  32. Hello I’m not too savvy when it comes to all of this hacking I have rooted a few phones before and installed rims but I have the verizon note 4 n910v I have tried to follow your instructions on how to unlock the bootloader but I’m just not sure if I was messing something up or my computer was messing something up. I’m on bedrest and decided to try to play around with my phone to get it rooted and remove bloat ware with no luck at all. Is there any possible way you could help me? Thank you so much in advance!

  33. I have a brand new S7 that was sent to me by Verizon and I want to root it…….BUT:

    The phone has a “V” in the model number and a friend of mine tried to root it but he discovered that verizon has their own lock on the phone.

    After he did the root it went into a boot loop.

    He re-installed the factory software but now the phone needs to go back to Verizon to be put back online.

    If you live near Rockford, Illinois or the Quad Cities (Iowa) and know how to root this phone send me an emaili with your phone number, so we can talk.

    Thanks for any help.
