What is a Custom ROM?

A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.

With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.

How to Install Custom ROMs

First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.

Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!

    Hi max.!

    I’m getting my s4 today and i have the option of having the i9505 or i9500. Which one would you recommend? I know you mentioned on one of your videos that you wont be able to tell much difference in terms of performance. But my only concern is apparently the i9500 have battery leak and overheating issues? Also yes, i live in Australia so LTE/4G is available.

    Love your work!

    I am attempting to Root my US Cellular SCH-R970 and I made the mistake of allowing the OTA to install and now the motochopper method does not complete.
    I noticed in another discussion that you recommended the TWRP method but it is going to android system recovery screen and giving me a “No Command” error instead of launching the TWRP recovery.

    I have tried so many different ROOT methods and still no success.
    I would appreciate any other options you can suggest or something I may be overlooking on this method.
    Thanks in advance for your help!
