Hello community! Welcome to the Index of ROMs from the Android Development Forum.

First of all, which ROMs are included here? Well, I just search and choose the active threads (even if the ROM doesn’t have any recent updates, the thread should at least remain active, with constant feedback from users and devs) but this isn't a must. Perhaps you can find some outdated ROMs that are still functional. Please remember, the most important thing is to read the thread of the ROM that you choose, take a look at the benefits, user reviews, bugs, FAQ, etc. And then, flash it. Of course all the feedback is welcome, if you see some wrong information or want to see a ROM added/removed, you can post a reply in this thread or send me a PM.

« 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:



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 four categories:

- Samsung Base

« ¿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:

« ¿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:

« ¿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:

« ¿What is CyanogenMod?

CyanogenMod it's a ROM pure based on AOSP, but have a main'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

I request you to kindly post a line or two about what feature of the rom you like best. This should encourage users to find and try out more roms

Good work!
Samsung based ROMs and MIUI are the best for me.
AOSP/ AOKP ROMs have the excruciating deep sleep (Android OS battery drain) bug for me at least.

Phone IMHO
After 4 years of custom ROMs I would say that of course there's no single ROM fitting all the needs at once.
I am currently using temasek's unifficial builds for performance, stability and battery life (accordingly to my very own setup).
Second runner is crDroid because of native FM radio (I really and badly need it) and the precious-as-a-diamond call recorder. There's also a list of other minor features and eye-candies, but I can easily live without that.
And because of the fine-graned aroma installer, of course.

Definitely Slimroms for the no-nonsense, no bloatware user. Has a good amount of customisation options, and very neatly implemented. Also has a dark/black theme which greatly aids battery savings because of the AMOLED. Use it with Temasek's custom kernel coupled with stweaks for UV/OC to help with battery/heat problems.
