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?
AOKP MR1 Milestone 2 is out and for those of you wondering what has changed from MR1 Milestone 1, here’s a brief overview. (If you do not know what ROM Control is, check out our AOKP ROM Control Settings tutorial FIRST!)

For those of you who are thinking about getting a more rugged and water-proof smartphone for either taking photos/videos while swimming or for industrial work, Galaxy S4 Active is certainly a great choice as it’s rated for IP67, a bit higher than Xperia Z (which has IP57).
You all probably seen many Galaxy S4 drop tests on YouTube and while they entertain you with completely broken screens, they do not show you anything. I know all of these guys are doing drop tests do generate millions of views but seriously does that show you ANYTHING?
For those of you with a Galaxy S4, Note 2, S3, Note 10.1, or Note 8.0, there’s an easy way to enable all apps for multi-window now using the Multi-Window Manager App. Before, the user had to install a custom ROM or a multi-window MOD to make this work but with the app, all you need is root.
Well, my HTC One finally arrived yesterday after an agonizing 2 week wait. But in the end, it was well worth the wait because I only paid $574 for an unlocked version directly from HTC.com. Of course, unlocked here means that the phone is “SIM” unlocked for using with any GSM network, the bootloader is still locked (but you can use HTCDev.com to unlock that).
