Here is a great thread that explains it all.Custom ROMs For Android Explained And Why You Want Them | Android News, Reviews, Apps, Games, Phones, Tablets, Tips, Mods, Videos, Tutorials - Android PoliceThis is taken from that thread...all credit goes to Android Police for this....I just posted it here to share as I see tons of questions pop up about this exact issue.IntroductionEver wondered what the whole Android custom ROM scene was about?What is all this talk of installing "aftermarket", custom upgrades on your phone?Who needs it? Why do it? Is it safe?Don’t fret – I’m here to explain – the AndroidPolice Academy is now in session.By the way, the word ROM means Read Only Memory, but has migrated in the modding community to mean an actual custom OS image that you install into the ROM area of your phone.Also, the word kernel essentially means the heart of the OS – it’s the barebones operating system components.

4.0 ice cream sandwich - For updating an Android OS which one is better amongst the, official Update and Custom ROM update


Tuesday 28th of February 2012 / android.stackexchange.com
Possible Duplicate: How do I update the OS in my device? When will my device get the Android 4.0 update (Ice Cream Sandwich)? I am using the Sony Xperia Arc phone.I came to know that,The Official Mobile Update OHLA(open handset alliances) will be delaying the release of Android OS(ICS 4.0).I have a little confusion about updating Android OS.I have seen some mobile OS update forums and they mentioned that we can update our Android phone easily to higher version i.e. Android OS(ICS 4.0) by rooting the device.But it seems the mobile warranty will be broken,the data will be lost and even we can find the bugs as well while updating through custom OS though we can update easily. So I want clear solution for this confusion so could any one help me for this problem.What would be my further steps for updating it to 4.0?

Custom OS Warning


Monday 13th of May 2013 / androidforums.com
Hi,I'm completely new to Android. Finally moved from iPhone But I'm confused by a warning I got the other day. Being the paranoid type I thought I'd check it out.So I turned my phone off to concentrate on the pub, when I turned it back on later, there was some kind of message saying "Installing custom OS can harm your device..." (or something along those blurred lines). And gave an option to "Install" or "Ignore". I clicked install, and the little android alien fella showed up with "Installing...". I had no idea what it was doing so I held the standby button until it went off.The phone seems fine, but I'm wondering what that was and if some kind of software I don't want is on my phone. There was no mention of "Update" etc. Is there any way I can check to see if something dodgy has been installed?Cheers,R
