What are Custom Roms ?

Custom roms are developed or customized roms made by the developers for people who are bored of seeing the stock rom.

Stock Rom – The version of the phone’s operating system that comes with your phone when you buy it.

Why you Need Custom Roms ?

Custom Roms are installed for bettar performance and efficiency, these are also useful for bettar battery life than the stock rom. In this rom’s all the unwanted apps and garbage which use a lot memory are removed and fully customized. I am sure that after installing a custom rom you will see a big difference in custom roms and stock roms.

These are also helpful to fix bugs like SD card removed unexpectedly error in samsung galaxy y and other android phone.

Benefits of Installing Custom Roms

1) Improve perfomance and efficiency,gives more battery life.

2) Free from unwanted apps.

3) Can completely move apps to sd card.

What Should I Do Before Installing a Custom Rom?

1) First you need to Root your phone for superuser permissions to install/flash Custom Rom.

2) If you have already rooted your phone and want to install custom rom then you must have more than 80% battery.

3) Backup all your contacts, messages, memos and apps using astro explorer or any other app which backups everything.

How to Install any Custom Roms?

1) Download the custom rom zip file and put it in SD card.

2) Move that file to clockworkmod > backup folder using file manager.

3) After doing the above step switch off your phone and on it in recovery mode by pressing Volume up + Power+Home buttons simultaneously.

4) Now Select Update from SD card and select Clockworkmod ( Skin 1980 file).

If you don’t have clockworkmod zip file then please check this post – here

5) You will go into Clockworkmod recovery.

6) Before installing the custom rom you need to wipe data and cache.

7) After wiping data and cache go back(to go back use power key).

8 ) In clockworkmod recovery, select backup and restore and in that select custom file name

9) Wait for few seconds until it completes the installation process.

10) After completing, go back and select reboot system now.

  • Edwin

    Hi Adithya,
    Good tutorial of yours there. I am a constant follower of your tutorials which i find usually covers all details related to the subject so that nobody ever needs to comment! About this one though – I would like to make something absolutely sure – will I definitely lose all my data? ( contacts, settings, apps, images, videos, memos…) If so how do I prevent it. (create a backup)
    Thanks in advance and congrats for the great work!

    • Aditya Chintha

      thanks for following our posts and keeps visiting our blog for more updates!!

      U didn’t give a reason that when u lose the date, if it is when u are creating backup of rom

      then its absolutely no, u don’t lose ur data when u backup ur rom!!!

  • Umair Amin

        Hi Aditya,
        Have seen similar threads but can’t find a solution. I have a Samsung Galaxy Young S5360 where the boot is stuck and doesn’t get past the Samsung logo. In recovery mode, I have applied the wipe data/factory reset but the problem doesn’t get solved. In recovery mode when entering ‘reboot system now’ I get the error E: failed to mount data E: copy_log_files_to_data : : can’t mount /data and then it just goes back to looping at startup. Right now I am trying recovery in ODIN Mode about which I hav eno idea, for past 1 hour screen is saying, downloading, do not turn off the target with android symbol/logo. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      There is no such ROM which is basically designed just to give you better gaming option. Gaming depends on the speed of your processor and capacity of your RAM,ROM just gives you the creativity. You can choose any of the above mentioned ROM for that. Cheers

      It mainly happens because of a lot of junk data on your phone memory. Format your phone and make sure nothing remains in there.
