Android Phones are a very important necessity in a person’s life. We are going to discuss the complete details on how to restore back to Stock ROM. In this article, you will come to know about various smartphones from popular OEMs such as Samsung, OnePlus, Xiaomi and Google.

‘Stock ROM’ seems to be a new term for you if you don’t have any tech background. It is no more than an operating system on which your device runs.

Another question that comes to your mind, why there is a need to install OS? The need for restoration comes when a user installs custom ROM instead of using Stock ROM. The android OS is open source in nature so the custom ROM provides some good offer instead of regular Stock ROM, that’s why people prefer it.

How to Restore Back to Stock ROM on any Android Device

Mostly it is to be seen that people make mistakes that lead them to different crashes in custom ROM. So that’s why the need for storing back to stock ROM arises. Here you will come to know how to do this.

What is a Stock ROM?

We can try to understand this i.e. we will assume that you buy a cellphone from a shop and unbox the device, the operating system running on this smartphone is Stock ROM. The stock actually means an OEM created for that smartphone and pre-loaded in it. These Stock ROMs are based on different versions of Android OS. There are some devices like Google Pixel, the stock ROM is completely based on pure Android or Vanilla Android.

Xiaomi and Samsung use their signature skins instead of vanilla Android UI. It means that Xiaomi uses the MIUI and Samsung uses OneUI respectively.

Why Stock ROM is considered important?

Stock ROM will always have a greater option than custom ROM. One example is that if Samsung or OnePlus releases a new version of Android OS, they immediately drop hotfixes if the early builds have bugs and these things are considered to be official.

There are many problems faced by users of custom ROM including app crash, shutdowns, hanging issues, and whatnot. Bricking is also one of the major issues that often arise.  So it would also help in unbricking a device. As we are now going to restore the Stock ROM so it is expected that all issues will end after restoration.
