INSTALLING A CUSTOM ROM
Download the ROM image, which is usually a zip archive, and copy it into the root folder of your SD card.
Important: you do not unzip the .zip file - just copy it as is.
You can do it by
attaching the phone with a USB cable and selecting the option of mounting the SD card to be used as a drive on the computer
unmounting the SD card, physically taking it out of the phone, and inserting into your own card reader
downloading the ROM straight from the phone browser
Once you've copied the ROM image, you can proceed to flashing it
The process of installing new firmware or low-level system software in general is called flashing.
We will be flashing the new custom ROM over the stock one that came with your phone.
And Reboot to recovery...
For booting to CWM recovery /TWRP recovery
Go to advance boot option in developer option and enable it
and long press power menu
for manual booting switch off the phone and
Press both volume + ,volume - and the home button together with the power button
release all buttons expect power button when we get a vibration and
release the power button after the lg logo has appered
this will let you get in the recovery menu
back up existing ROM (which you should do unless you've already backed up manually) from back up and restore
wipe data and wipe cache, which you should only do if you want to do a clean install, i.e. when upgrading from the stock ROM. Note: this does not wipe your SD card data - it only wipes the phone's internal memory.
and wipe dalvic cache too in advance option
and after that click in install from sd card
The ROM you downloaded should show up in the list. If it doesn't, make sure you've put it into the root folder of the SD card.
and click INSTALL

FAQ AND QUESTIONS
What is the root?
In the most literal sense, root is a part of a plant that typically lies below the surface of the soil. Rooting a smartphone is completely different: by rooting users can gain privileged access to Android’s subsystem (or root access). This is useful for accessing data, making backups, or changing the "base" of your smartphone, such as the Android (ROM) interface.
How does rooting work?
By rooting an Android device, you basically install a new kernel. A kernel is the conductor that will tell the software how to use the hardware portion of your device. Very simply put, the new kernel allows for more access and more customizable access to your devices hardware.
What is a Custom Rom?
A ROM is an Android-based system. This is actually the system that you use. TouchWiz is the rom developed by Samsung, the HTC Sense, etc ... We talk about custom rom (Custom) when the developer of the ROM is an independent group or individual. For example, CyanogenMod is a custom ROM for example, based on Android "pure".In detail, this is a set of consistent data with a chip ROM (read only memory), present on your smartphone.
What is CWM ?
CWM or Clock Work Mod is a custom recovery for android which repalaces the orginal recovery given by manufacture,It has more options and support than the stock one
What Does Custom roms do?
Custom roms has no boltwares and other apps which increases the RAM usage ,thus its lag free and smooth
