    as title says i need help as i got this device and its all good but theres a slight lag and i believe its down to the heavily skinned rom its running so i was wondering if i can wipe it and put a new rom on it and how could i go about doing this?

    Android roms are incredibly device specific.... Attempting to install a rom from a different device will almost certainly break it...

    Nope. Because you'll have different hardware. Android ROMs are extremely device specific. The hardware should be exactly the same. Same CPU, same GPU, same camera, same gyro, etc. If even one thing is different, the ROM will not work and could just brick the device.
