Huge thanks to GaboWinter, the originator of this index thread. I will continue to update the index and build on his work


Hello community! Welcome to the ROMs index from the Original Android and Android Development Forums.


Please remember read all the information (the OP & first posts, and last 5-10 pages) of the threads of the ROM that you choose, that's the best way to avoid any issue.

« A few things to have in mind...

Please take a look on the next quote of SM crachel from his thread DO NOT POST A "What's the best ROM/Kernel/Theme?" THREAD!:

Quote:

This applies to this thread too. Many users have been asking me about suggestions of the "best" ROM / Kernel, it's simple, I can't and I don't answer to that because that will be in my opinion, taking in count my usage, my installed apps, etc. And that isn't the same for you, it's different when some users only come to ask "Hey, could you suggest some light / AOSP base /Sammy base ROM to try?" Then I can give some suggestions (various) based on the Index but nothing else, the final decision it's up to you.

Thanks for your understanding.

« Index Structure

I know that every Developer is free to choose the title of the ROM as he/she wants, but it's really much easier for users (and of course for me) if the date and the version of the ROM continue as the main fields since I'm organizing the index by the date of the last update, with most recent being first. These are two examples of an "ideal" title:

[ROM][ROM][07/07][ICS 4.0.3][XWLPG]NAME OF THE ROM[EXTRA FEATURES]

[ROM][ROM][07/07][AOKP][Build 40]NAME OF THE ROM[EXTRA FEATURES]

I would really appreciate if the developers could organize their titles as some of the examples above. Thanks in advance.

The index is divided in five main categories:

- KitKat

- JellyBean (AOSP)

- JellyBean (AOKP)

- ICS

-Gingerbread

Categories FAQ
« ¿What is an Samsung based ROM?

We call Samsung / Sammy based to all the ROMS who have they base on some of the official (sometimes leaked) firmwares by Samsung, some examples are XXLPG, XXLQ5, XWLPD, etc.

In this ROMS, mostly, you can find the usual Touchwiz interface, however some ROMS include different themes to change the appareance.


« ¿What is an AOSP based ROM?

First of all, AOSP stands for Android Open Source Project.

These ROMs offer you the "stock" Android experience without all the extras provided by the manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, etc. they are based directly on the source code from Android. They may be tweaked but are, in their entirety, the closest to a "pure Google experience".

More information here: http://source.android.com/


« ¿What is an AOKP based ROM?

First of all, AOKP stands for Android Open Kang Project.

Well, AOKP is in essence AOSP, the main difference being all the added customization that AOSP ROMs lack. AOKP ROMs still maintain the "stock" Android experience, except with many possible customization options at your fingertips.

More information here: http://aokp.co/index.php/news


« ¿What is a MIUI based ROM?

Very basically, MIUI is the Chinese custom version of Android. The main difference that have from another ROM's is precisely their unique customization options.

The MIUI team hast their own launcher, widgets, apps, etc. If you really want a change from the Green/Gray of GB or the Black/Blue of ICS then take a look at MIUI ROMs.

More information here: http://en.miui.com/


« ¿What is CyanogenMod?

CyanogenMod it's a ROM pure based on AOSP, but have a main feature...it's a base too for many of the ROM's that you can see here, the Cyanogen Team works on innovative features that later are ported to different Devices / ROM's.

You can't see an independent category on this index but maybe you are receiving a touch of CM on the ROM that you have on your phone
