I Am Groot!
Some quotes from movies are quite famous and end up being remembered for a long time. Sometimes they are long, sometimes short, but they are always catchy. If you ever watched Guardians of the Galaxy, you certainly know about what I’m talking about.
I am Groot! Yes you are right, one of the best, extremely lovable wooden characters played ever by Vin Diesel says nothing but this quote. Groot can put down roots on your Android device. It’s entirely possible, thanks to XDA Forum Member mikmitch who created a rather unusual Xposed Framework module that Grootifies almost every text field available in Android and adds sounds effect to app transitions. The module is configurable, so you can select which parts of Android should be rooted by Groot and his most eloquent sentence.
This module is similar to another funny module Hodor!, which was released a while ago. In addition to having love for Groot and other characters to Guardian of the Galaxy, you need to have Xposed Framework up and running on your device to use this module. Your device must also be rooted.
If you haven’t watched Guardians of the Galaxy, you should because it’s one of the best movies released this year according to IMDB . And in the meantime, you can prepare yourself for a meeting with Groot. To do so go to the Groot module thread and get started.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
