Reasons Not to Install A Custom Android ROM



Reasons Not to Install A Custom Android ROM



A custom ROM replaces your device’s Android operating system — normally stored in read-only memory — with a new version of the Android operating system.  It’s usually very tempting to install a custom ROM on your Android device To get the latest version of Android, eliminate bloatware, or add additional features and system tweaks.

However, custom ROMs aren’t perfect and they can have downsides — depending on the ROM, your device, and how well the ROM supports it.

You may run into;

Battery Life Problems:

The custom ROM may not be as optimized for your device and may drain battery faster than the device’s official ROM.

Hardware Issues:

Custom ROMs may not properly support every bit of hardware in your phone, so you may run into bugs, non-functioning hardware, or just other issues. For example, the device’s camera may not take pictures quite as well as it did on its official ROM.


The custom ROM hasn’t been tested by your manufacturer and carrier, so you may run into other bugs specific to your device and ROM. You could also experience system instability, with apps force-closing and the phone randomly restarting itself.
