Best custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is definitely one of the hottest handsets in the market today. While many of us would just use the device as it is, there is a group of people who prefer unlocking the full potential of the Galaxy S4 hardware by installing modified versions of the operating system (custom ROMs) on their devices.

Installing a custom ROM is not as cumbersome as it once used to be., especially for popular handsets like the Galaxy S4. Firstly you have to root your device, then install a custom recovery which lets you swap custom ROMs of your choice.

Its important to remember that installing custom ROMs may void your device warranty or cause device malfunction or data loss if you do not understand the process. Please note that you will be proceeding at your own risk.
