Having root access and a custom recovery an Android device give you the license to customize it in a plethora of ways. Besides millions of free and paid apps and games available in the Play Store, there is an awesome custom development community out there to help you with UI and performance based customizations.
There are hundreds of OEMs in the world that manufacture Android devices and many of them ship their phones and tablets with customized versions of the OS. You might be happy (or not) with the UI of your device but there are a few things that are always felt to have scope for improvement. Whatever device you might own, we always desire less lag, faster performance, better battery life and capability for theming and so on.
In case you are not happy with the performance of your device running stock ROM or want to experience something new, you must be looking for a good custom ROM to enjoy good performance and add-on features. And if that’s true, we have a very cool ROM suggestion for you.
The Resurrection Remix is one of the most popular aftermarket ROMs available for dozens of Android devices from major OEMs. It has earned a good name because of its stability, good performance and decent battery backup. To describe appropriately, the ROM is a “remix” of the best feature found in AOKP, CyanogenMod, ParanoidAndroid, OMNI and the original Resurrection builds. Thus, it is a pleasant amalgamation of performance, customization, power and new features in a single package for a range of Android devices.

Features of Resurrection Remix ROM
Actually, I have flashed the older versions of the Resurrection Remix in the past. However, it was just a day ago when one of our friends (Graham Boyle+) recommended it. Now, I have it flashed on my Nexus 5 and LG G3 and having checked out it features and performance, we can assert that it’s probably the most stable ROM to give the best Lollipop experience on certain Android device from OEMs like Motorola, Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony and OnePlus.
Apart from all features that you usually see in AOSP and CM-based Lollipop ROMs, Resurrection Remix features CM Theme Chooser and an awesome set of options packed together as ‘Resurrection Tools’ that lets you do heavy customization your phone’s interface, homescreen, lockscreen, notification drawer, display, buttons and other things. If you own one of the following devices and are looking for a Lollipop ROM that can be used as a daily driver, Resurrection Remix is just the ROM you might want to settle with.
