Custom ROM is a modified Android Operating System so you can get extra features from your phone otherwise not possible on stock. Think of it as upgrading your tiny wheels on your rice beater to 21” rims, or maybe even putting a Corvette engine in it.So, what features can custom ROM bring you?

Last year we gave out a Galaxy S3 and a Galaxy Note 2, this year we are upping the giveaway with TWO Galaxy S4s!
Monday Android News – Android Plane Hi-Jacking, Ugly Galaxy Camera, Note 2 Wifi Fix, and Galaxy S4 or HTC One?
It seems like a lot of big news sites are cropping up false headlines like, “Android hi-jacks plane” or “Android remotely attacks planes”. Well, that’s somewhat true but let me just point out that researchers were just using Android as the platform to develop their hi-jacking apps because Android is “open source” and you can develop highly-sophisticated apps custom to any project while you cannot do that on iOS or most other mobile platforms. This proves the versatility and flexibility of an open source platform and Android will keep becoming better for researchers and students to learn/develop real-world applications.
Thanks for everyone to who voted for me yesterday, I did win the election, I am now the President of HighOnAndroid community for the next 4 years. Thank you thank you.
Here’s a round-up of Android news and tablet news of the week.
First, Windows Surface tablets are coming out soon, they look not bad at all.
Best Android smartphone of the year 2012?
LG Optimus G was just announced earlier this week with a Qualcomm S4 Pro Quad-core 1.5Ghz processor, 8.45mm thick, 2100mAh battery, and 13-megapixel camera. Too bad LG is rarely seen on U.S. carriers much and I doubt they will make it to more than one U.S. carrier. This could be a great phone but LG still needs to step up in the areas of customer support, marketing, etc…etc… I will not buy an LG phone until they make their international support centers better.
I was pretty happy when I got my HTC Evo 4G LTE yesterday. It was 5 days late of official launch date of 19th but I didn’t mind since it wasn’t Sprint’s fault rather Apple’s injunction against HTC.
In this video, we go in-depth which U.S. carrier has the best 4G plan.
4G LTE is without a doubt the fastest 4G network with best coverage but is it right for you?
Here’s why Android is better than iPhone/iOS!
Before I left to South Korea to visit my parents, I was a bit excited to hear that Galaxy Nexus was being released. Well, after I got to actually play with a Galaxy Note, I have to say that Galaxy Note is a far better device than Galaxy Nexus, as far as hardware and everyday usability goes.
While none of us here in the U.S. have gotten our hands on full retail versions of Galaxy Nexus, Google posted Galaxy Nexus video tutorials on their YouTube channel.
Here’s some breaking news for the Android community and developers, Google has “just” released Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich source code into the wild. Of course, you can imagine many Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs being developed for various different Android devices in the next few days. This is an exciting day!
A question I get probably at least 10 times a week is, “Why root my Android phone?”
