Once an Android device is rooted, the user can have complete control over the device. Additional tweaks can be added, useless system Apps that come with stock firmware (known as bloatware) can be uninstalled, the user can transfer Apps from internal memory to SD card and vice-versa. Additionally, the user can transfer the Apps into the ROM i.e convert it into a System App. This can be done using an App named Apps2ROM.
Apps2ROM is an extremely useful App available on the Google Play Store for free. It not only moves a user App into the ROM, but it can perform the reverse function also. This App shows the list of Apps installed in an Android and identifies which App is a user App and which is a System App. When a system App is updated,the update is stored in the internal memory so these updates can also be moved into the ROM. The advantages of moving the App into the ROM are – more internal memory is available and it also speeds up the Applications. Other feature includes that of deleting a System App.
Given below is a tutorial on how to convert a user App into a System App.
