"Install safely your ROMs with just a tap (only ROOTs)"

Reviewed by / May 17, 2011

Download and manage your ROMs, make and restore backups and make SD partitions.

If you don't know what being root means at all , look it up before coming back. It is absolutely essential.

...

Welcome back. This app allow us to create recovery points and install roms with just one click.

It would be quite long to explain all the benefits and troubles that come when you become root. What it's actually short is to say that the first thing you have to do is create a recovery point. It's as easy as tapping the first option you find when you install ROM Manager: Flash ClockworkMod Recovery.

Once you've made your Recovery, just look somewhere for a nice ROM and install it. Normally it's a somewhat difficult task, but that's the main use of ROM installer: to bring you two taps closer to your new ROM.

We strongly recommend that you look for and follow up any of the good tutorials that are found in Android blogs everywhere. Becoming root lets you enjoy the full potential of an Android phone, but also can be a real mess if we don't take care enough.

Rom Manager is one of the few applications that we recommend to buy directly, without trying the free version.
It's absolutely a must have for every root phone.

Developer's original description available here
ROM Manager is THE MUST HAVE APP for any Android root user. (Over 10 million downloads and counting!)

* Flash your recovery to the latest and greatest ClockworkMod recovery.
* Manage your ROMs via a handy UI.
* Organize and perform backups and restores from within Android!
* Install ROMs from your SD card.
* Install your favorite ROMs over the air!

Premium Version:
* Incremental update zips (save your data plan!)
* Premium ROMs
* Receive notifications for when your ROM is updated!
* Automatic backups
* Install Queue
* Web Connect
* Backup Download Server lets you easily transfer backups as flashable zips to your computer.

Do you prefer using only recovery manually? Check out the Touch Recovery in app purchase, for the most advanced recovery available!

Why does ROM Manager ask for account permissions?
Web Connect only needs to access your Google account to connect it to your google account. It can't access any private data or passwords.

ClockworkMod Touch Recovery:
ClockworkMod Touch recovery (and recovery) is work that needs to put in for every new device that is released by a manufacturer.
If work on ROM Manager ceased completely, all the premium features would continue working without issue. However, new recoveries do not port and build themselves. Without ClockworkMod Touch being a per device purchase, there is no way to recoup recurring server costs and labor. Keeping ROM Manager free and operational costs tens of thousands of dollars a year, and that does not include engineering costs.
Your support is appreciated.

Troubleshooting:
Droid users: Stuck at the "M" logo? Flash an alternate recovery and flash back to ClockworkMod.
HTC Users: Flash recovery not working? Try fastbooting a recovery on.
Droid X/2/Pro Users: You must run the Bootstrap application first to use ROM Manager.
Samsung users: You must flash a Clockwork compatible kernel first (see XDA forums)
