What is Custom ROM?

Custom ROM replaces your Android Operating system (Stock ROM) which comes with your Phone or Tablet. As you all know Android is an open source platform where a developer can take all the source code from Google and build their own operating system images for Android phones and tablets from scratch. This Custom or Home built Firmware is known as Custom ROM. It comes with a kernel which makes it a fully standalone OS. So some developer in Android Community will customize the Android OS by stripping all the Bloatwares and makes it a pure Android experience with no carrier or OEM installed apps.

Reasons to install Custom Roms:

WHY in this day and age, anyone would want to install a custom ROM on their phone? The reasons is that there are a lot of features that people want from an AOSP version of Android/custom ROM that isn’t possible on various OEM ROMs. a lot of modifications can be flashed in TWRP  that add more features. Then there are the people who feel that OEM ROMs,  are too bloated with useless features which, in turn, reduce the overall performance and battery life of the device. So flashing a stock-based custom ROM with Treble is a great way to get away from that setup.

What is Project Treble?

Project Treble shares low-level drivers and the rest of the operating system so that manufacturers and third-party developers can quickly and easily release updates. For devices with Android 8.x Oreo “out of the box” support for Treble is a prerequisite, and for older smartphones and tablets, the option is available to choose from.

Treble TWRP Custom Recovery:

To Install Any Custom ROM, you need Treble TWRP Recovery on your device. Once you have installed TWRP, you can easily start installing Custom ROM or any mods on your Zuk Z2 device.

Nice article!

Have you tried Arrow? Does it compare well with any of these? And how about custom kernel with any of these Pie roms?
