  2. 1. Root Your Phone
    The first thing you need to do is root your phone. Don't be afraid - we already covered this in the Please or Register to view links article a few weeks ago, so go ahead and read that first - I'll wait.

    Rooting is usually a 5 minute process, and many guides around the web explain what that process is for your exact phone model and Android version combinations, just Google "YOUR_PHONE_MODEL root".

    Now that you have root, let's proceed to the next step.

    2. Install ROM Manager App
    This is the easiest step. Go to the Android Market on your phone and install ROM Manager.

    This excellent application handles backing up and restoring, as well as flashing new ROMs, all from an easy user interface. This application requires root, which is why we've first gone with step 1.

    Got the app installed? You should see something like this:

    3. Back Up
    This part is very easy and in fact I Please or Register to view links just to this subject which you can read if you want more details about the backing up and restoring process.

    Done reading the backup tutorial? Now check this out: you don't even have to perform a manual backup - ROM Manager will automatically ask if you want to back up or not in step 5, when you are flashing the new ROM. This is what it will look like:

    3.1. Flash A Recovery Image
    If you read the backup/restore article above, you may have seen that there is a Please or Register to view links that was needed before ROM Manager, or any other manager, can install ROMs, back up, restore, or do anything with Nandroid Backup - and that is flashing a recovery image.

    Important: unplug the USB cable during this step, as some users are reporting problems flashing recovery while plugged in (thanks DennGir and others).
    This recovery image contains a boot loader which replaces your original boot loader.

    The boot loader gives you the ability to run Nandroid backup and restore commands outside of the OS.

    It also lets you install ROMs but we will not do that today. Since the OS cannot back itself up fully while running, ROM Manager will reboot into this boot loader to perform Nandroid operations.

    4. Download The ROM You Want To Try And Copy It To Your Phone's SD Card
    Here is where you need to do a bit of research and find the ROM image you want to put on your phone. If you don't know exactly what you're looking for, again, Google can help you - just search for "YOUR_PHONE_MODEL ROM" and look around.

    For instance, if you have a Nexus One, you may want to go with Please or Register to view links and if you have a Sprint HTC Hero (CDMA), you will want to check out Please or Register to view links.

    If you bought ROM Manager Premium, which I recommend, you would have a "Download ROM" menu enabled right within the app, containing some of the most popular ROMs, so you don't have to look for them online or spend time downloading them on your computer and copying to the phone.
    If you choose not to use ROM Manager Premium or if the ROM you want is not included in the default list, then keep reading this section.

    Each ROM you find will be based on a specific Android version - make sure to pay attention to that.

    DamageControl ROM For The HTC Hero
    In my case, I knew that there were not many options for my Sprint HTC Hero and I quickly found that the Please or Register to view links was exactly what I'd been looking for.

    It is currently based off Android 2.1 and it's exactly what I had flashed on my phone to come up with this [p]review: Please or Register to view links.

    Download The ROM You Selected
    Download the ROM image, which is usually a zip archive, and copy it into the root folder of your SD card.

    Important: you do not unzip the .zip file - just copy it as is.

    You can do it by

    • attaching the phone with a USB cable and selecting the option of mounting the SD card to be used as a drive on the computer

    • unmounting the SD card, physically taking it out of the phone, and inserting into your own card reader

    • downloading the ROM straight from the phone browser
    Once you've copied the ROM image, you can proceed to flashing it in step 5.

    If you purchased ROM Manager Premium for $3.99, in addition to thanking the developer for the awesome job, you've also unlocked a few premium features.
    In particular, the Premium version can download ROMs compatible with your phone straight from ROM Manager. Just select "Download ROM" and see which ones are available for your model.

    Unfortunately, there is no ROM entered into the app for Sprint HTC Hero at the moment, so you still have to download it manually using the directions in step 4.

    5. Flash It
    The process of installing new firmware or low-level system software in general is called flashing.

    We will be flashing the new custom ROM over the stock one that came with your phone.

    • Pop open the ROM Manager and click "Install ROM from SD Card"
    • The ROM you downloaded in step 4 should show up in the list. If it doesn't, make sure you've put it into the root folder of the SD card.
    • Click on the ROM and you should receive a popup inviting you to
      • back up existing ROM (which you should do unless you've already backed up manually) and
      • wipe data and cache, which you should only do if you want to do a clean install, i.e. when upgrading from the stock ROM. Note: this does not wipe your SD card data - it only wipes the phone's internal memory.
    • Follow the rest of the prompts and voila - the ROM is being installed!

    The flashing process should take 5-10 minutes installing everything and then 10-20 minutes during the first boot. Please be patient during this process.
