    I have a xiaomi redmi note 4g with an unofficial version of CM 11 installed on it. I kept my phone to charge and after some time the charger exploded but the phone was fine. I saw the battery statistics graph after the explosion and observed that the graph had a weird curve. Instead of normal upward line it had several continuous upward and downward lines(like drawing of a hill).Is it possible that the custom ROM could have caused it.

    Welcome to the forum

    It's highly unlikely that software or firmware, (the ROM) could have caused the charger to do anything, much less explode. Hope there was no other damage....

    Thankfully I was not on my desk near which I had kept my phone. Thanks for the quick reply

    Was it the charger that came with the phone or was it a third party replacement?

    Welcome to the forum! Was there any type of overclocking/undervolting activated within the rom you were running?

    It was a Samsung charger. I hadn't done any kind of overclocking etc.
