Whether you’re looking to upgrade an Android device forsaken by its manufacturer or you just want more control over the phone or tablet you own, you’ve probably gone looking for a new ROM. Rooting your phone is the first step, but a new ROM will give you a completely new mobile OS. This week we’re going to look at five of the best Android ROMs.
It’s important to note that not every ROM is available for every device, and different ROMs are aimed at different audiences — some of them are designed to upgrade the OS, and others are lean and mean installs to speed up your phone. Whichever you choose, you’ll have to make sure your device is supported by the developers behind the ROM before installing.
