Download 5 best Custom ROMs for Smartphones and Tablets
Android OS and iOS are currently the two most famous and most popular operating systems for smart phones. With a constant increase in the production of mobile devices and falling market prices, we have hundreds of different models and versions available. Unfortunately, they are often burdened and limited by the manufacturers. That is why developers around the world do their magic in order to restore smiles to the faces of mobile phones users and allow them independent control of their phones.
Rooting represents the same thing for Android OS as Jailbreak does for iOS. One of Android’s best features is certainly the possibility of installing ROMs. This process is called Rooting. By rooting your phone, that is installing another ROM on your phone, you enabled to get more features and custom settings which were not available in the original. Those are most often a revised interface, new themes, custom sound and/or screen settings as well as different extras in applications. Authors usually remove various default applications that are unnecessary and consume too many resources.
There are two types of ROMs: Stock ROMs and AOSP ROMs
Stock ROM is the original ROM that comes installed in your new phone. These ROMs arrive from the manufacturer with full support, regular bug removal and data updates.
AOSP ROM is an acronym for Android Open Source Project. These are ROMs made by developers. They are currently the most popular among users of Android phones; even though they are not as stable in work as Stock ROMs, nor do they have the same support and may contain bugs. Most of these ROMs do not have their official sites, so you have to look for them on various forums and portals. You install this type of ROM at your own risk. We emphasize that you lose warranty on the device if you install these ROMs and we strongly recommend you to practice installing it on an old mobile phone or tablet first in order to complete the installation successfully and without trouble on your new phone or tablet.
