4 reasons to tell you why should install a custom ROM?

By  Adeline Kuang 2019-06-03 5577 0

For every three smartphones sold in the world, one is a China brand. The high appearance, high cost performance and high reliability of China mobile phones have become the main reasons to attract overseas users. At the same time, this may bring some software problems for foreign users. How to solve this trouble? Install a custom ROM is enough!

What is custom ROM

The ROM stands for Read Only Memory. A custom Android ROM refers to a phone’s firmware, based on Google’s Android platform.

Android is an open source, therefore any developer can edit the code, recompile it, and re-release for a wide variety of devices. Users can install ROMs to change a device’s appearance and behavior.

ROMs are developed by the Android community, often times by a group of core developers who do this purely out of passion for modding. This means that most are completely free. Custom ROMs have a wide application, such as phones, tablets, media players, smart watches and almost any type of device running Android.

Why should install a custom ROM

When you buy an Android device, it comes with what we call a “stock ROM” or the “stock firmware”. This refers to the pre-installed operating system. This ROM usually has limited functionality as defined by the phone’s manufacturer. By flashing a custom ROM, you can unlock extra features and sometimes improve the performance.

With a custom ROM you can even modify things like the color of your notification light, the force of your vibration, the saturation of the colors on your screen and much more.

Master you Android devices and personalize everything

When you buy a new smartphone or other Android devices, you can’t remove certain apps and services, you can’t change bothersome aspects of the interface. It is miserably.

Installing a custom ROM, you can swap out one operating system for another, tweak more settings, and change the experience until you’re as happy with Android as you can get. Then your phone is truly yours to do with as you please.

Use open and free software

The Android is an open source operating system. Most of the apps that we install run proprietary code. The services that bring us core functionality are locked away from tinkerers.

How do you find out what software is open source? Install a custom ROM. Popular projects like LineageOS base their code off what goes into the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

Get Android updates faster

Many manufacturers never update their older Android phones and tablets or updates may take months to reach phones thanks to carrier and manufacturer delays. If you have an older device that isn’t receiving updates anymore and you want to run the latest version of Android, a custom ROM is just the ticket. Using a custom ROM lets you take matters into your own hands. Although they don’t offer a guarantee, but you may a lucky dog!

Prolong battery life

Each device has an expiration date. Most phones don't last more than two years, and some phones even half a year. That let buyers stuck with older versions of Android, vulnerable to security attacks and unable to experience the latest apps.

Using a custom ROM can allows you to enjoy the latest version of Android for a long time after the device has reached the end of its useful life.

Warm tips before install custom ROM

Rooting offers many advantages, at the same time it is also a bit risky. Rooting offers many advantages indeed but, at the same time it is also a little risky as it breaks into the wall of security build by the operating system.

Before install custom ROM, make sure backup your impotent Apps, contacts, messages, such as IMEI number, account number, what’s more important is backup your current original ROM.
