People said this day wouldn’t come but they refused to run ! Yes my friends when Htc Explorer came in the market its low specs made people think that this deivice wouldn’t see many custom roms , well but they are wronged again ! This little beast boasting a 600 mhz arm v7 cpu and a adreno 200 gpu has now over 50 custom roms ! And that’s where our job begins ! we tried ALL roms one by one and stripped the list to TOP 3. It was a hard choice but we did it and we proudly present the revised edition of top 3 custom roms for htc explorer.

 

3)   Cyanogenmod 9.1 for htc explorer

The legend continues last time it was also the part of our top 3 and it is again ! Now when every thing works for this rom we don’t have much to say ! if you want to boast your device to some one well do it the ics way !

MIUI Gingerbread 2.4.20-RC2 for Galaxy Mini/Pop GT-S5570


This is one of my favorites!This Rom by xda senior member ahmadsafar has some amazing features.It is packed with aroma installer which just makes you fall in love with the whole installation process.You can choose from a ton of things ranging from which kernel to use between cyanmobile and cyangonemod 7, the boot animation, the sd ext support and many such things.Other options include installing with minimal, recommended, typical and custom settings .Though some people are saying that RC1 was better and smoother but i dont think so.If you install with minimal settings it works great.The MIUI interface is really well resized and each and everything works.The camera is awesome and has some features such as anti shake, delay snap, burst, etc.So, i would really recommend you try this one as it is really really stylish and stable as well.So, here’s the changelog, screenshots, and flashing instructions.
