    Make sure the downloaded ROM is in the Root folder of the SD card. Download ROM Manager app and open it. Select 'Install ROM from SD card' option. Click on the newly downloaded ROM which will appear. The 'Backup Existing ROM' and 'Wipe data and cache' prompt will appear. Keep both options checked, if you haven't backed up the original ROM data earlier. Tap Ok and follow the prompts. The flashing and the first boot up will take about 30 minutes.

    Hey friend first of all you need a clock work mode recovery to access the custom rom. Most of the mobiles will be bricked through rom manager. So be aware from them. In clock work mode recovery you need to select data wipe, data cache and advanced dalvik cache. Do it and then select install zip from sd card and select them new custom rom file and click it. It will take up to 2 min to install. After that you do repeated process doing wipe data, dalvik cache and select reboot system now. The boot time takes upto 10 minutes. After that you enjoy a new custom based rom in your mobile....

    It is very simple, but make sure the custom ROM that you download is compatible ,means to say it is compatible to your phone hardware, else your hardware may not functioning properly

    For flashing the custom ROM, you need to put the ROM in to the Root folder of SD card.

    Now you required one apps that is “ROM Manager” app, this is basically install your ROM from the SD card directly.



    If you don’t want to use this apps then you can reboot the
    device and there is option that is install from the “SD card” ;you can also select that path.



    But is better to use the apps, you can select 'Install ROM from SD card’, after doing that you have to check the option that is “Backup Existing ROM” and “Wipe data and cache” and press to OK

    This will start your flashing process.

    HELLO DEAR,


    As you had downloaded it then make sure that the downloaded ROM should reside in your ROOT folder of the MEMORY CARD. Now go to ROOT FOLDER and open the app. There you need to hit on the option of INSTALL ROM FROM SD CARD. Tap on the ROM which you have downloaded newly. As soon as you will do it, you will be provided with the option of "BACKUP EXISTING ROM" and "WIPE DATA & CACHE". Here you need to check both of them and tap on OK option. After this your boot will take shortly.




    THANKS FOR POSTING QUERY..........
