Default Newbie but rooted, just a couple of questions :)

Hi, I'm new here and new also to rooting etc.

I have successfully unlocked and rooted my M7 and using TWRP recovery.

I am under the impression you can't update OTA when rooted, I would like a standard ROM with sense 6, but I just have a couple of questions....

1. Could someone supply a link to the best stable Sense 6 ROM suitable for an unlocked UK M7?

2. Could you also explain how to install the ROM using some not too technical language

Thanks for your help

Ben

I cant tell you much as I am using Miui rom and i have killed an M7 a while back but Viper ROm is the best I have used and that is Sense 6. Bare in mind I have not used a Sense 6 rom at all but last Viper i used was 5.5 and it was great.

There is Android Revolution HD, im not sure if this is Sense 6 but is is a custom rom as close to stock that you can get.

Just download the ZIP and enter your receovery and flash, it is simple as. Just dont wipe internal SD card..

So I download the zip file on my computer, where do I save it on my phone, bearing in mind it doesn't have an SD card?

Thanks for your help by the way

Just place it on the internal memory of the phone. Don't put it in any folders. Then boot into TWRP, select "Install zip from SD card" (the internal space paritition is labelled as "sdcard" due to the way android works), find the zip and install it.

You would be well advised to make a back up of your original rom first. If something goes wrong you can go back to it, may be hard to find it on the web if you dont.

Best advice. Do a nandroid backup of your Rom now and try a few different ones. Personally I like android revolution hd. If you are going to try that use twrp 2.6.3.3. It doesn't like other versions very much

Well, I have been using Viper One which is super stable and has got a lot of tweaks... Worth trying. The other one is the InsertCoin ROM

I know you've asked for sense roms, but I would definitely give some aosp roms a try. I've always liked aosp better. That said, it seems like development for this phone leans more towards sense based roms and definitely sense kernels. Only a couple of aosp kernels to choose from. I'm new to this phone (switched to Tmo a couple months ago and didn't want to buy a new phone on payments), but I was disappointed to see that after being out for a year the aosp development was somewhat lacking.
