    Hello, I just rooted my rush and im i dont know ANYTHING about roms or where to find them.

    Where can i find one?
    I want one thats fully customizable.
    Because last time I tried the rom toolbox to change the status bar it said I needed a rom that was deox or something like that and so i was too scared to choose a theme.
    I also tried to use over clocking apps but its says " your device or kernel s not available".
    And i would also like a rom that doesnt use much memory and is fast aswell.

    Thanks and sorry for being a bother im a "noob".

    PS. I think im using the stock rom.

    It will format system, data and cache, everything that's on your external sd card it doesn't touch, I would however advise you to make a CWM backup just in case something gets messed up :p

    Yes it does delete your files. It needs a clean slate. Otherwise there would be conflicts within the system and apps. Wiping the system and data ensures the perfect working phone. And I'm a dev working on this with Slayer. This rom is awesome.

    Cwm is available from playstore and can give a great backup of everything. Just remember unless you have a pc you can't unzip the .tar files (could be wrong) and access your data.

    So my recomendation would be an app called titaniun backup. It can backup all your text messages, phone calls , contacts and much much more. Just be sure after backing up to move the entire titanium backup folder to external sd. This way the formatting won't wipe your backup. Same goes for Cwm. In titanium you have to backup the data as well as the apps for your contacts and stuff to be backed up. Otherwise it's just gonna get the application and not it's data files too.

    I agree with all of the above accept for CWM being available from the Play Store, that's incorrect, the only way to get CWM on this device is to either download it from Shabbypenguin's thread here on the forum or from Rom Manager since we have official support for it on there, just make sure to select the CWM for Prevail 2 since it was a flub up from Samsung as far as the code name for this phone... :p

    It works on the Rush I've already used it, you just have to make sure you install the device specific updated script for it and then it will perform properly at that point... Also go into options and have it use the default shell instead of the one they use by default, it works properly after set to Default shell... :p :car:
