[Guide] How To Flash A Custom ROM To Your Android Phone [Copy the Link]

1#
Hi everyone, I found a guide about how to flash android phone. I copy the information to share here.
Anybody who bought android phone from FocalPrice, and have flashed your phone. Welcome to share your experience in this thread, or post a new thread.
Everyone share will be rewarded a 5% off coupon.

Custom ROMs

The Steps
Here are the steps, at a glance. Look the list over and move on to the more detailed explanation of each bullet point.
1. Root Your Phone
2. Install ROM Manager App
3. Back Up
4. Download The ROM You Want To Try
5. Flash It
6. Want To Go Back? Restore It

1. Root Your Phone
The first thing you need to do is root your phone.
Rooting is usually a 5 minute process, and many guides around the web explain what that process is for your exact phone model and Android version combinations, just Google "YOUR_PHONE_MODEL root".
Now that you have root, let's proceed to the next step.

2. Install ROM Manager App
This is the easiest step. Go to the Android Market on your phone and install ROM Manager.
This excellent application handles backing up and restoring, as well as flashing new ROMs, all from an easy user interface. This application requires root, which is why we've first gone with step 1.
Got the app installed? You should see something like this:



3. Back Up
Now check this out: you don't even have to perform a manual backup - ROM Manager will automatically ask if you want to back up or not in step 5, when you are flashing the new ROM. This is what it will look like:


3.1. Flash A Recovery Image
There is a one-time step that was needed before ROM Manager, or any other manager, can install ROMs, back up, restore, or do anything with Nandroid Backup - and that is flashing a recovery image.
Important: unplug the USB cable during this step, as some users are reporting problems flashing recovery while plugged in.
This recovery image contains a boot loader which replaces your *** boot loader.
The boot loader gives you the ability to run Nandroid backup and restore commands outside of the OS.
It also lets you install ROMs but we will not do that today. Since the OS cannot back itself up fully while running, ROM Manager will reboot into this boot loader to perform Nandroid operations.



Again, remember: this step needs to be done one time only.

4. Download The ROM You Want To Try And Copy It To Your Phone's SD Card
Here is where you need to do a bit of research and find the ROM image you want to put on your phone. If you don't know exactly what you're looking for, again, Google can help you - just search for "YOUR_PHONE_MODEL ROM" and look around.
Each ROM you find will be based on a specific Android version - make sure to pay attention to that.

Download The ROM You Selected
Download the ROM image, which is usually a zip archive, and copy it into the root folder of your SD card.

Important: you do not unzip the .zip file - just copy it as is.
You can do it by
   * attaching the phone with a USB cable and selecting the option of mounting the SD card to be used as a drive on the computer
or
  * unmounting the SD card, physically taking it out of the phone, and inserting into your own card reader
or
  * downloading the ROM straight from the phone browser
Once you've copied the ROM image, you can proceed to flashing it in step 5.

5. Flash It
The process of installing new firmware or low-level system software in general is called flashing.
We will be flashing the new custom ROM over the stock one that came with your phone.
  * Pop open the ROM Manager and click "Install ROM from SD Card"
  * The ROM you downloaded in step 4 should show up in the list. If it doesn't, make sure you've put it into the root folder of the SD card.
  * Click on the ROM and you should receive a popup inviting you to back up existing ROM (which you should do unless you've already backed up manually)
     and wipe data and cache, which you should only do if you want to do a clean install, i.e. when upgrading from the stock ROM. Note: this does not wipe your SD card data - it only wipes the   phone's internal memory.
  * Follow the rest of the prompts and voila - the ROM is being installed!

Check out these screenshots I took, showing the full process:




The flashing process should take 5-10 minutes installing everything and then 10-20 minutes during the first boot. Please be patient during this process.
Once the phone boots, you should find yourself in the new ROM.
This is it - end of the road! You've done it! Enjoy your fast and clean phone.
