SlimROM is one the popular third-party ROMs available for Android devices and for those who wants fast, smooth and lighter experience on their Android phones, it is a must try.
Best part of the SlimROMs is the size of the firmware, which is just under 80MB (GApps not included) and doesn’t include any unwanted apps that you might not want thus having the least amount of memory footprint on internal storage of the phone.
The SlimROMs team has now released the new Android 4.2.2 based SlimBean 4.2.2 Build 1 for more than 20 devices. It can be downloaded now from the link given below and requires full wipe if you are coming from Android 4.2.1 based versions due to the code-change.
SlimROM now includes Roman Nurik’s awesome and pretty popular Dashclock lockscreen widget by default. Software supported HDR mode has also been introduced in the new version.
