Top five ROMS that I will recommend for flasing…


CarbonROMs are basically known for it's excellent features and stability. CarbonROM has much more number of features than any other ROM for Armani or Xiaomi Redmi 1S like ParanoidAndroid, CyanogenMod or Mokee OS. Well there is an AOKP ROM available for our Redmi 1S too, but this ROM is more famous than the AOKP ROMs. As of now, none of the ROMs have been supported officially by the ROM managers and have been unofficially ported to Xiaomi Redmi 1S and that's the reason for having various small bugs or instability issues in ROM. Because this ROM is not a group project, but is compiled by an individual, this ROM has more bugs than the ROMs ported by Armani Devs like CyanogenMod and ParanoidAndroid ROM. The biggest problem in this ROM currently is that the RIL or network, calls, internet and all services related to SIM is not at all working and the developer is claiming to solve the bugs very soon. These bugs are acceptable because the ROM is currently on testing stage and not even Alpha or Beta. None of the SIMs are working in this build (Testing build #1) and don't expect it go get fixed early, because the developer currently doesn't have the device with him.


The ROM is packed with in built set up profiles, theme engine, and much more. The can be flashed on many devices but we have numbered just a few devices that are a bit famous ones.

The ROM is very good at Gaming and gas a scope of betterment in the interface as it frequently gets updated. The awesome ROM is not available f0r many devices bu t we have listed a few devices which have the capability t o be flashed by this ROM.


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. Performance tweaks, customizable LED notifications, and much more abilities of this ROM makes it stand aside from other ROMs.


CyanogenMod has been around since the beginning. 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.

In some cases after flashing the custom ROM, when rebooting the first time, your handset might get stuck in a boot loop (if the first boot takes longer than usual, don’t panic, there is nothing wrong with your device); if that happens, follow:

Reboot in recovery once more.

From there select “wipe data factory reset” and “wipe cache partition”.

Return and reboot.
