Ubuntu Studio Slackware Linux Mint Lubuntu How to install a new ROM on your Android smartphone This article is dedicated to the launch of Android Magazine, the world’s first monthly mag 100% dedicated to the little green robot. One of the main reasons people like to root their devices is to install a new or different version of the operating system. The open source nature of the OS means that it’s possible for anyone to view the code that makes up Android and then modify it as they see fit, in a similar way to which the Linux-based desktop operating systems work. Custom ROMs can offer new features over the standard ones, allowing you to tailor your device to your needs. First of all you need to root your phone and there are a few methods for doing so. 1) For this example we’ll use Z4 Root. 2) Open Z4Root and in the centre you will see a button saying ‘Root’. Once you’ve rooted your phone, ROM Manager makes backing up, installing a custom recovery and downloading the new one a breeze – and will even enable you to restore your original ROM if you prefer!
