    I know what it is in emulating for games, is it the same thing? So what would a rom do for my phone (i know there are many but like one example)

    Also what is a sbf? And again what does it do for my phone?

    Im new at the phone thing so please forgive my ignorance, I am very open to learning so expect alot of questions as I post.

    Android is the frame
    ROM is the body
    Theme is the paint job....
