Probably the most popular questions I see floating around regarding rooting are why root and what to do after rooting. Why you should root and what to do after rooting pretty much go hand in hand. Here I’ll be discussing one of the main benefits and how to do it. As I’m sure many of you have heard, custom ROMs are the talk of the Android forums and allow you to do a lot of things. Today, I’ll be showing you exactly how to flash (install) a custom ROM on Android.
Benefits of Flashing a Custom ROM
While you’ll end up seeing a lot of benefits from custom ROMs, they all probably fall under 3 main areas:
Better Performance – You’ll be able to overclock Android or even see it built in with the ROM as well as see overall performance increases from various tweaks
Better Battery Life – One of the first things people do when rooting is remove stock apps. Don’t know how? Most developers have the apps already removed in their ROMs. Additionally, various system tweaks and improved kernels, as well as undervolting Android help to drastically improve Android battery life.
Better Overall Experience – Try other versions of Android such as those found on other phones that have been ported to yours; stay up to date with updates and new features; try out different Android themes, etc.
All in all, there are a LOT of benefits you’ll get from using a custom ROM on Android, so wait no more, here’s How to Flash a Custom ROM on Android.
Choose the ROM that you want and download its .zip file
Transfer the zip file to your phone’s sd card. Do not put it into any folder.
Turn off your phone and reboot into recovery, usually by holding the down button and power button at the same time.

Wipe the phone by clear cache/factory restore and wiping dalvik cache
