Angry The Nexus Rom Bible

The Nexus Rom Bible



A Big THANKS to Royalknight6190 for making the Original Rom Bible for G1/MyTouch.



If This Info was helpful to you, then please Donate to Royalknight6190, because he needs the money for his son. Here is his link.


If you also want to help me out then look at my sig for my YouTube and Website




For a great Release Database Comparison, where you can view the Roms side by side Check this link out : http://db.androidspin.com/androidspi...sp?phone=nexus


First I want to thank every Dev for everything they do : Cyanogen, MicroMod, Rodriguez, Amon RA, just to name a few, I know there are many others out there that Im forgetting to name.

Each Rom is Broken Up by OS Version and has its last update date. If you have any questions ask in the correct post. Also I have added a review section where Others or Myself rate each Rom from 1-5 (1 = Worst 5 = Excellent). These reviews are our opinions and how they worked on our devices with the settings we had at the time. Thank You and Enjoy.



What is Root? Why would I want to Root my Android Device? What does it mean? -

Do you have plans to rate any more of these ROMs on the 1 to 5 scale that a few like Cyanogen are? Even though it's subjective it's really useful to get an opinion from a consistent observer

Thanks for the directory regardless; this guide is a good starting point.

Thanks for the comment, nice to see people are actually looking at this thread.

Ya, i do plan to put in more and more review, but the thing is that i havent tested them all, just a few, because the Nexus I have isnt mine,

I would like to encourage people to PM me and let me know on some rom reviews and i will defiantly add them to the directory

Great job on this guide. Is there a Rom out there that is as close to Enomther's but on Gingerbread? I am mostly looking for Trackball wake, 720p, good battery life and stability.
