    My friend asked me that and I wasn't sure...is it still 'read only memory' or is it different in the hacking world?

    Its still Read Only Memory. The "ROM's" you flash are being flashed to your system partition which is read only. We have the ability to change it from read only because we have root. Hope this helps.
