Assuming you owned an Android device, or for that matter visit any Android-related news site then you will have heard about ROMs. Though a lot of people catch onto what ROMs are, for some people it’s not such an easy thing to get your head around. If you aren’t quite sure what a ROM is, hopefully we will clear things up for you today.First I should explain what a ROM is. The term ROM is misused, and a pseudonym. Up until recently, ROM’s were storage chips consisting of Read-Only-Memory. Ever played Gameboy games? They were ROM’s. Sometimes there was a separate area in the cartridge where you would save games to, but the game itself was Read-Only. You couldn’t modify it. The term which is closer to being correct with reference to Android, is Firmware. You can easily replace it all, if you choose to.
