ROM Manager 4.0 released, now “unsuckified” and supporting comments and ratings


ROM Manager is a “must have” application for every root user out there. Of course, one of the most important benefits of rooting your device is the ability to flash custom ROMs onto it, and those that like playing around with them, will be happy to know that ClockworkMod has released ROM Manager version 4.0.

ROM Manager’s new features (as stated by Koushik Dutta from ClockworkMod):

  • ROM Manager now supports comments and ratings!
  • The service behind ROM Manager 4 is hosted on DeployFu.
  • Learned and wrote the service in ASP .NET MVC 3.
  • Finally got around to unsuckifying the ROM Manager UI.
  • WebConnect is no longer a useless chrome-to-phone downloader.
  • Paving the way for even bigger things to come… (hint: a website)

The major changes that the users will experience first-hand are the  UI improvements, and the ability to rate and comment on ROMs, but as Koushik Dutta mentions, there is much more than meets the eye, as well as more features in the works, which seem to include a website.

To check out the new version of ClockworkMod’s ROM Manager, head over to the Android Market to get in on the fun. This app is actually free, but there is also a Premium version for $4.99, giving you the option to turn off ads (for those that would like to support the developer). Please let us know your opinions on this app and its new changes, and happy flashing!

    Awesome…ROM Manager is by far the most convenient app for root users IMO

      ROM manager is the most popular app for people who do not know how to use ADB or flash recovery images.

      I wish i had a dime for every thread i’ve seen on XDA about ROM manager screwing up their phone’s recovery image.

    Is the “Stock Images” option only available for the N1…I see that option on my Nexus One but not my G2

    I used to use Rom Manager so much back in my Droid days. Now, it’s useless to me. :)

  • http://Website NotRelevent

    I like it. Very useful app.

    My only issue lies with the rom devs, instead of the app, and that is the fact that I can’t find any fully stock rooted roms. CM is the closest and even it isn’t stock. All the others come equipped some sort of shitty theme.

    unsuckified, hahaha

    I think I’m the only person that thinks the icons make it look uglier.

      Koush just updated it tonight with some polished icons in gray scale, that looks awesome now :)

    ROM manager used to be worthwhile, doesn’t support amon ra recovery, makes the entire thing pretty unusable if when you wipe using clockwork and it’s a known fact that clockwork doesn’t wipe properly, makes using it to flash ROMs completely unstable. Nowadays I boot directly into amon ra recovery, wipe correctly and fully, and flash any ROM knowing it’s not going to cause me any problems. If RIM manager ever truly supported another useful recovery like amon ra, it might be usable for flashing ROMs someday. For now, it’s not.

    It would have been nice if the free Rom Manager app had a CONSPICUOUSLY posted warning and list of what phones are supported. That way, I wouldn’t have bricked my phone. Thanks a lot, developer, whoever you are. Neediing to know info that you don’t even know exists, sucks.
