Did you install a custom ROM on your mobile and since then it downloads very fast? You’re not the only one this has happened to. And when this happens it is difficult to know what is the cause of the problem. However, we will try to give you ideas so you can solve it.

Not in vain we always emphasize that rooting an Android mobile brings risks and that this is under the responsibility of the user. But don’t worry, you don’t need to punish yourself more for it, if you’ve come this far it’s because you’re looking for solutions and we’ll give them to you.

How to know what is consuming the mobile battery?

In most cases when a mobile starts to download faster it is because, almost certainly, there is a background process or application what is “working” more than necessary.

Look at it this way: if you spend all day playing with your mobile or checking social networks, it will download faster, it is very obvious. What many of us ignore is that, when an application or process is running in the background and for a long time spend more energy. It is as if you were using the mobile all that time without even touching it.

And depending on the process that is running can even heat the mobilecausing the battery to drain terribly fast. Does it sound familiar to you? Probably yes, that’s why we recommend that you check which application or process is active and consuming battery all day.

Check the battery consumption of the mobile

You don’t need to download an app to check the battery consumption of appsjust follow these steps:

  • Go to system settings.
  • Scroll down until you find the section “Battery and performance«.
  • There you can see in detail the energy expenditure of your mobile throughout the day and which apps have used more energy.
  • Go to the application (or applications) that are draining to the mobile.
  • You can force stop the app, clear cached data, or uninstall the app.

Take into account that depending on the manufacturer this section may present more or less functions but in essence they all offer the same options.

And if the battery monitor in Android falls short, we recommend you to try Gsam Battery, a very complete app that monitors system applications, background processes and the apps you have downloaded in more detail. Here is the download button on Google Play:

If all this fails, it may be time to start thinking about restoring the mobile to factory settings. Remember to backup all your files before formatting it.

Does rooting the mobile make it download faster?

install custom rom android 11 pixel 5

No, or at least not in all cases. In fact, there is a fairly common confusion about what root is. When a person root their Android mobile simply enable access to superuser settings.

With the root you will be able to delete applications pre-installed by the manufacturer, modify the mobile as you wish or even download an unofficial ROM. In the case of mobile phones that stop receiving official updatesa custom ROM may be the perfect solution. But beware! These changes could damage your mobile.

At the other end, a custom ROM can improve the performance of your mobile if it is well done.

Which custom ROM should I use on my mobile?

It is difficult to give an answer that is applicable to 100% of mobiles. The only thing we can recommend is that you make sure that the custom ROM you want to install other users have done well who have tried it.

Finally, we would like to share this reflection: the software that gives life to mobile phones has reached such a level of complexity that could be compared to an orchestra. Each instrument (lines of code) is intertwined with others to produce a single great symphony. If any of the elements go wrong, this could affect or even completely damage your device.

So don’t root your phone or install ROMs if you are not sure if it works well! And if you have any doubts, write us in the comments. We will gladly clarify your doubts.
