    Default Custom Roms

    Alright so I've been following a tutorial on how to root and add a custom rom to my phone and whatever so anyway..

    All I have done so far was put the 2.1 image on my SD card and upgraded everything worked / works perfectly fine.

    So my question is, what is the point of the "custom rom" then? Do I have to do anything else to my phone? (is is necessary?) or can I leave me phone like it is? What good comes out of flashing a custom rom on to the phone?

    What is the newest, best custom rom out as of today?? And can you provide me a link to it?

    Its a custom version of how things run and communicate. But if you have the leak your not rooted and you cant flash a new rom till your are rooted

    Generally ROMs include better memory management and keep root access so root apps (like ShootMe, Cachemate, wifi tether) can work.
