--Friday, December 27, 2013
To flash a Rom means to reinstall Android system of your Android phone. The step will be quite simple that you need to do it just like that with one click on Ghost. Some users may wonder: is it possible that I fail flashing my Android phone and there's something wrong with it after I flash it? To be frank, to flash your Android phone does no harm to your phone. If you flash a system of a new version and there's something wrong with your phone after it, you can flash it to other version according to the instruction below:

1. Enter Android System Recovery, then, choose the option: "Flash zip from sdcard".

2. Download the ROM package before flashing your Android phone and named it "update.zip" and then store it in the directory menu of the SD Card.
3. Before flashing your Android phone, backup your notes, text messages, and other important files in advance.
