Which is Best Custom ROM for Optimus Net?
In my last article I discussed about the need for custom ROMs and the reason for their existence. This article is actually intended to list and give a brief overview of the custom ROMs available for LG Optimus Net, and I thought it is worth mentioning some information regarding the advantages & disadvantages of using custom ROMs along with the actual topic.
Let us first look at the advantages that you get out of the custom ROMs. They provide with speed tweaks, which actually result in fast & efficient performance. If you have a tethering plan subscribed, then custom ROMs increase your tethering speeds enormously. Tethering is the process of connecting your phone to the laptop via a USB cable, and access the wireless network on your laptop for internet browsing & downloading. You can install a custom ROM and use a new OS much before its official release for your phone – another advantage. They improve battery life and give apps – which provide useful functionality/service – the root access. Over-clocking and Under-clocking can be done, which change the performance levels and battery life in opposite ways.
The disadvantages may be few but risk the phone’s life. First of all, the custom ROMs void warranty, which means you need to go back to the stock ROM in case you want to avail the warranty services. Those apps which are not right or are malicious may be given the root access, which is quite dangerous. The last but not the least is the frequent updates that you get (of custom ROMs), so you have to flash almost every day to make your phone work basic features one by one (which were buggy earlier).
Anyways, you want to root and flash I know that! Just have a look at the device specs and then go through the ROMs.
