    Congrats! It's quite a lot of fun! Make sure to read as much as you can to familiarize yourself with various processes. Anytime you're going to add a new rom, read the directions thru a couple times before starting...

    Kinda fun isn't it being in control of what your can do and how it looks I have not got into custom roms yet but I can imagine its kinda like getting a new phone with each new rom or theme
