    Hi Camstuf

    Well, for starters there are people who simply enjoy trying out different custom ROMs.
    Take a PC for example. There are many people out there who disregard the warranty of the components and they overclock them. Some computers come with seals on their cases and many people still open up the case of their PC simply to upgrade or whatnot.

    For some, smartphones (especially Androids) are the same. Overclocking and installing all sorts of ROMs can be tempting, but for that you usually need to root your device.

    Indeed, rooting and flashing is not recommended for anyone who doesn't want to void the warranty, risk bricking their device or don't have enough knowledge or patience to look for answers if they run into problems.
