For those of you who have been installing custom ROMs on your Android device using CWM Recovery, did you know you can use ROM Manager to automate the process?

Recently, I’ve noticed there’s more apps that check for root on your Android smartphone/tablet device and won’t let you run the app because you have a rooted Android device. Usually, these are safety precautions that companies take in case of hackers stealing your private information but I honestly think they are going overboard as Android is built on Linux, which is not susceptible to viruses like Windows. Most rooted Android devices are in fact probably safer because the user has full control over the phone, not the other way around.
For rooted Android smartphones and tablets, sometimes you may need to flash IMG files (files ending in .img). Whether you are flashing recovery image such as CWM or TWRP recovery or flashing boot image, it’s always a complicated task involving fastboot command with a computer OR terminal emulator with dd commands.
