Database of Android ROMs Helps You Choose the Best One


Many, many Android users modify their Rom when they either get fed up with the stock or one they have downloaded from XDA Developers website. However, there are dozens of ROMs available, and picking the best one can be tricky. This massive database will help you find one that just might be right for you.


XDA Developer nimrodity put together this massive database comparing the features of some of the most popular Android ROMs, including CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, AOKP and a few others. It’s a work in progress and he’s opened the database to the public so people who don’t see their favorite ROM included can help edit and update it. For the ROMs that are available though, you can scroll through the hundred or so rows to see all of the available features, like support for HALO (Paranoid Android’s ring-style launcher), a theme chooser, wake on volume buttons, power options, even things as specific as whether the ROM has a built-in flashlight mode.

<We’ve covered some of our favourite Android ROMs in the past, but the number of Roms hitting the XDA site is far to many to even bring you upto date. Of course, the one you settle on will have to support your device as well as have the features you want, so don’t overlook that when you’re making a decision. Hit the link below to check out the database, there are three video’s on the XDA page, one we have below.
