    Can someone explain this or maybe point me to a web address that explains it?

    What is the difference between the Android OS and the ROM?

    In PCs I understand the relationship between BIOS, boot sector and OS pretty well. I know almost nothing about this so if I could get some kind of explanation that compares it to a PC, maybe I can understand it a little.

    Thanks for reading.
