If you’ve rooted your Android phone, you’re most likely interested in a few custom ROMs. The problem is that many people interested in flashing custom ROMs are not sure how to go about getting started.
In this post, I will run you through the general steps of flashing custom ROMs. You can follow along with the instructional video I’ve included at the end.
Your phone must be rooted so that you can perform the steps in this guide. If you have a non-rooted your phone, this guide will result in an epic fail. Android Authority has numerous rooting guides for a lot of the most popular Android phones–so, go ahead and try searching for a rooting guide for your phone.
The process for flashing a custom ROM onto your phone might vary slightly for your specific device, however the general steps are usually the same.

Here’s a video guide demonstrating the steps described above:

My recovery mode does not have all the above options…I have Samsung Infuse 4g..My options are:
reboot system now
delete all user data
delete cache data
format internal sd-card
So where do I go from here?
I get the same options. Would have been nice to see a valid reply to your inquiry.
BTW- I have wondered if executing the last three options would have the same effect, but not knowing for sure makes me hesitant to try them…
I flashed a Galaxy Mini with a Music Edition ROM available at xda forums, and it doesn’t seem to work. Phone ain’t starting now :/
What to do? anyway, is there a way i can use my PC to get the job done? Cuz that’ll be way simpler!!
THANK YOU FOR THIS!!!!! i was so stuck on HOW to get the file to flash
I have installed multiple custom roms on my old HTC Hero now, and I just love how Android allows you to mess around with it this much. I have upgraded my phone to newer version of Android many times using custom roms and lately I tried the HTX Zero 0.21 Rom which installs Android 2.3.5 and Sense 3.5 on my 2.5 year old HTC Hero!
Very interesting stuff!
I wrote a review on it if anyone is interested which you can find here: http://technopsis.blogspot.com/2012/02/custom-roms-for-android-upgrade-your.html
