One of the best rooted apps available for the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 LTE device is the Triangle Away application. Once you install custom firmware on your Grand 2 to update it to newer versions of Android, you get an annoying yellow warning triangle during the boot process. It’s enough to make the people around you wonder what is going on with your device. If you don’t like to in the spotlight for negative reasons, you might prefer installing the Triangle Away application. Once you install the Triangle Away app, you get rid of the yellow triangle and nobody can tell you are using a rooted device with custom firmware.
