With custom ROMs you can improve on the functionality of your phone as well as get more improved features that may not already exist on your phone’s stock or official firmware. You can improve on your phone’s battery life, see increase in available RAM and storage space.
If you are tired of the stock rom (official firmware) that currently runs on your phone or you need something different from the ‘normal thing’, flashing a custom rom might just make your device look all new once again to you.
This is possible because some apps pre-installed on your device which you don’t use (probably don’t need) will be removed to create more space and decrease number of running processes to increase available RAM.
The custom ROM in this post is based on Lineage OS, and it is meant specifically for Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro.
To flash this ROM, your phone needs to have a custom recovery installed, and must be rooted. If you haven’t done any of this or don’t know how just post in comments section for assistance.
Note: this ROM is still a nightly build and might contain a few bugs.
