    As I ask in the Title?

    What is a ROM?
    How do I install it?
    Where Do I download it from?
    Which is the best?
    What does it improve?
    What are the risks?

    Thanks!

    You can find all the answers to your questions by spending a little time searching the forums.

    This kind of stuff has been discussed a thousand times before.

    Don't be like that! There was a time that NONE of us knew nothing about any of this too! The only stupid question is the question that isn't asked! For all you know, he could be a dev someday! Give the guy a break!
    To the OP, you can find the answers by using the search box on the home screen and Google is always helpful too!

    +1!! Its so hateful to talk down to someone who asks for help! Imagine if someone had done that to Pete...Bugless Beast (well, started as Bugless Beauty) would have never came to be! The Forums are for support, not to bash others! If negativity is the only response you can give someone, just don't comment!

    I really hate to say this because it's not usually my style, but 84 posts in 2 months, and still doesn't know what a ROM is? I think someone telling them to read a little more is exactly what was needed.

    Now that I'm at a computer let me respond.

    -A rom is a custom operating system made by developers.

    -You can install through many methods. Rom Manager being one

    -Some roms can be downloaded right here from the forums, others through rom manager. It's really based off of personal preference.

    -Once again based off of personal prefrence.

    - Custom roms can improve quite a few different things. ex. faster speeds, use of less memory, even neat little tweaks to make your phone more enjoyable.

    -Rooting theming or putting custom roms on your phone can always be a risk.
    Messing with the operating systems and its OG designs can cause issues. There are always solutions to almost every problem.

    Do like I did. It took me about a month of reading post after post to even get the nerve to just root my phone. I was prepared though when I finally crossed that fence.

    Once again if you have any issues or problems , thats what these forums are here for.

    Not the most detailed response but I hope I answered a few questions. And I know that my grammar is horrible so no comments lol
