I recently rooted my Sprint LG G2. I'm a new to the whole installing a ROM's on my phone.

Is there any threads that go through the step by step process of installing ROMs?

Also, do I need a "recovery"? Or do these come with the ROMs?

Thanks to all that answer!

Download freegee from play store to install a recovery. I just rooted my G2 yesterday. I have a ROM ready to install but still researching the proper procedures to flash. I'll post back when i find it.

From a PA post:
Download ROMS from NEW DOWNLOADS

make sure you are on the latest TWRP (there are issues with CWM - u may try unofficial CWM)

1. DOWNLOAD YOUR ROM

2. DOWNLOAD THE LATEST PA 4.4 GAPPS PACKAGE - always check/use up to date Gapps unless otherwise noted

Wipe Fresh Clean Install (you all know the procedure)

3. COMPLETE CLEAN WIPE - *includes system*

4. FLASH ROM & GAPPS

5. WIPE CACHE & DALVIK

5. RUN INITIAL SETUP & REBOOT

Let boot take as much time as needed. This will help avoid boot issues.

From what I'm reading, essentially the SD card is partitioned. So apparently when formatting system the rest of storage remains intact. Download ROM (and GAPPS if needed) and just move onto SD card. Go from there.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here...
