Well this is another ROM ranked at 9th position in our count down. Most of us are really unaware of this ROM but this is what we are therefore we are gonna have spot light on the ROMs. The infamous ROM is built from a few sources like CM, AOKP, and Paranoid Android.

The SlimBean ROM stands at the 8th position in our count down spot light. What makes it different from other ROMs is that is basically the slimmer version of the stock android ROM (that is actually what its name suggests).

The Xylon ROM is another pretty fast and responsive ROM which is famous for its fast and easy to use shortcuts. The Xylon is another custom ROM that is built off of AOSP, that actually means that the ROM is based on stock ROM with a few features added over it. Basically the features of FNV, CM, AOKP, Team BAKED, and Paranoid Android make up to be Xylon ROM . The ROM is very smooth and its reviews have revealed that the ROM is very much friendly with the Battery life and extends it at an unbelievable rate. Unfortunately he ROM is not so universal and is only available on the Google Nexus 4.  This ROM needs a thumbs up from all of the Nexus 4 users.



The CodefireX ROM is another very high at performance and smooth at using. The ROM has a plenty of features from the CynogenMod, Well CynogenMod has just became the ancestor of all the newly developed ROMs don’t know why developers these days are not coming with something new other than just amending the old features and embedding them into their ROMs.

So the CodefireX ROM has a Good user interface and has a very nice lag less performance on high end games. The ROM is available on many devices, we have set a few devices here which can be flashed with this ROM.

  • Nexus 4
  • Galaxy Nexus (Maguro, Toro)
  • Nexus 7 & Nexus 7 3G
  • Galaxy S3 (d2vzw)

We can compare this ROM to the CynogenMod but is less familiar and famous to most android users. The ROM is very similar to CynogenMod but has very much new and different features on over it.  Most of the areas in the ROM are from the stock android but a few places are just better than CynogenMod. The ROM is good for Gaming and is very smooth at performance.The ROM is not very famous and is available for a few devices only.

The AOKP doesn’t needs any recognition here it is the 3rd in out Countdown list. Android Open Kang Project AOKP for this ROM which was started in 2011 with ice Cream Sandwich as its base. It’s been one of my all time favorites on a Nexus device because you can change the software key colors.The AOKP has hundreds of features that’s ant really be explained here but one can only understand while using This ROM.

And has gained more team members, device support and new features over the years. Including customizable quick settings, customizable software and hardware keys and much more. CyanogenMod 10.1 is available for a ton of devices. Also developers change kernels of few Phones to make this ROM work on their device. also there are plenty and thousand of Themes are available for CynogenMod on the Google Play Store. still we are not going to term any features as there are many many to be listed out here.Actually this is the best option for a newbie for flashing a ROM and i personally use this ROM and im very happy with it.

  • Can someone explain why Custom ROMs are called ROMs? I thought ROM was Read Only Memory

    Robert 3 years ago

    • These are actually lines of scripts and Code which are stored in the Read Only Memory of the Hardware of the Android Device. So we generally call it a ROM cus basically a ROM is empty and we need to fill it with the content that can make the system boot and cannot be erased.

      Harshmeet 3 years ago

    • ROM is short for EPROM or Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory. General users have no access to this but when a techie “flashes” a ROM they are erasing and reprogramming the ROM to hold the new operating system.

      Keith Morgavi 3 years ago

      • Very Well said Keith !

        Harshmeet 3 years ago

  • Isn’t pac ROM better because lately it has cm 11 latest version of aokp and the latest version of paranoid you just gotta download the file from basketbuild nightly and then the newest zip

    Troxie 3 years ago

    • It Basically varies from person to person.
      One always has a different point of view.
      And when comparing ROMs with so many differences and similarities it is really hard to make a choice of what is better than what.
      At last, we can only select on the basis that which one will serve best for oneself.

      Harshmeet 3 years ago

  • Hi,
    I just bought chinese brand phone called Gowin. phone is kinda ok but the keyboard worries me and how can i use a touch phone without keyboard. Everytime I type anything keyboard keeps popping off and on. is it possible I can use any of these custom rom?

    Adjoa 3 years ago

    • Custom ROMS for not so famous phones are very hard to find. as developers are dedicated to deliver what the majority uses.

      Also the Keyboard pop up thingy is a Free RAM issue. Please search on our guide to Free RAM.
