Drivers and Utilities
The best firmware according to the members of the forum

Overview of firmware and recommendations from our members of the forum
Options for custom firmware.
1. CyanogenMod firmware (or CM for short)

CyanogenMod is pure Android without adding chips from the manufacturer, a huge team of people are working on creating the basis of these firmware. According to statistics all over the world, more than 4.8 million phones cost exactly CM firmware. CM firmware is usually focused on reliability and performance. You can read more
Video review.

2. Firmware based on stock.

The point of creating such firmware in increasing the performance of phones while retaining all the manufacturer's chips. And again, you get the opportunity to choose which software from the manufacturer to keep and which to remove. As a rule, only such firmware appears in the first months after the phone enters the market.

3. MIUI firmware.

MIUI is a highly modified android, sometimes reminiscent of iOS. Most of the MIUI firmware is based on CyanogenMod and is released almost immediately after the official release of it. The main task of MIUI is to simplify the management of the phone and at the same time add to the interface of beauty and the ability to change the appearance in the root. You can read moreHere. Video review.

4. Android Open Kang Project (or AOKP)

AOKP firmware is very similar to CM, however, it is considered that AOKP has more settings that change the phone's interface and some functionality. The AOKP development team is much smaller than the CM, but it often happens that a group of like-minded people gather to support the popular AOKP device with the AOKP firmware.

5. Android Open Source Project (or AOSP)

By and large, AOSP is a bare android. The way it is released by Google, most often in such firmware minimal interface changes. Often, the creators of the firmware indicate in the name of their firmware "based on AOSP", that is, at the heart of the firmware is a naked Android.

Maybe someone will be interested. I installed the firmware Easy Project 5.1 (4.1.2). Not so long ago, I decided to play around with the system files (delete superfluous), but immediately remove afraid, decided to just move the stick and see whether anything serious. Move the 4 I've found, as well, and then completely forgot about exeperimental. Charging the village phone, put it on charge (sitting at the computer, so stuck the phone into USB computer) Sat 4 hours, I began to gather on the street, rented phone charging and there are only 74 protsenta.Nu think from the street come from the normal charge is charged. While walking to friends listen to 4 songs through headphones, watching charge of 64 percent. I was shocked. In the morning, when he came home put on charge, I woke up at 4:00 (the day) just looked at a charge so there is 83 per cent. Well, I think everything is now, and I was faced with a slow charging. And then it hit me, I touched the system files. Defused the phone to do so it was not hard, played half an hour in heavy toy. Charge remaining 13 percent. Restored system files and O_o miracle! Phone charge for two hours and discharged as usual. I decided to write this for those who are faced with a slow charging, check at these system files. I am attaching files.

By heating the galaxy to leak 4.2.2 noticed such a thing. Sews almost all of the firmware (yuzal every day or two) and each heating phone, whichever is greater, some less. I stopped at Wanam 7.1, (additionally by setting different buns), since it is less likely warmed smart. Firmware is installed over a week ago. And the heat was gone. Galaxy is not heated nor after a hard playing, nor the active surfing on the internet. I think this confirms vyskazanoe before anyone else's opinion that the firmware should "ustakanilos";)
