    They're basically Android builds that are customised by different developers that replaces your network carrier ROM to include additional features and performance boosts. Check out cyanogenmod.com

    It's basically something that isn't changed. Hence Read only memory. It's used for the vital functions of your phone...Sort of like a locked down system 32 on your computer.
