PAC rom is one of the best custom roms ever. This rom is named as PAC because is a combination of features of three most popular custom roms in history of android development and rooting that are Paranoid Android, Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) and last but not the least CyanogenMod. It combines the best feature of all the three roms in to one powerful, liquid smooth and blazing fast rom i.e. PAC rom. And like they say ”What’s there in a name?”
It packs the salient feature of the three most customizable roms available to rooted android users. So if you are going to root your phone then you must install this ROM for sure. Let us talk about its features.
PAC borrows the ever useful Pie Menu and Full-screen Mode from Paranoid Android. Pie is a multitasking environment creator providing you all the necessary apps and settings shortcuts on screen that you need and thus you no longer need the clumsy navigation and status bar. Therefore, you have the full-screen space at your disposal and you can do whatever you were wishing to do with that screen space. Pie is there for your smooth navigation through all the apps and settings and every corner of android.
Another fascinating feature It borrows from Paranoid Android is the per-app DPI feature. This feature lets you resize each app available on your rooted android device according to you own taste. You can increase or decrease the size of each app so that they can appear bigger or smaller on display. Thus you can control the overall appearance of your device.
Further, PAC rom takes the Navigation Bar customization and Ring feature from AOKP. You can customize the navigation bar of your smart phone deciding the number of apps that appear on it or giving it a particular color as well as what the buttons would do on short press and long press. Everything is in your hand.
Another fascinating feature is the Ribbon function that PAC rom also borrows from the AOKP. This ribbon function enables you to set up rows of buttons in strategic locations all over the display and allocate different service actions for them. Your device can be used as a swipe pad, which is kind of enthralling. Bur reminding you again if you have not rooted your phone there is no way you can use these features.
PAC rom is awesome to use but with every advantage, there is a certain disadvantage. Here the disadvantage is that PAC is just a mash up three other popular roms and do not have anything original of its own. So it becomes weary sometimes and compared to other roms which offer great developer support PAC is weaker in this area.
PAC includes mods and tweaks from other roms which while combined together might not work as they work on individual roms and thus the whole purpose may fail. Other than this PAC developers have to work hard when the original roms push updates and introduces new features so whole lot of work is required to include these features into PAC rom.
Overall this is very nice rom to use which offer great stability and customization that normal android user on a manufacturer installed rom or firmware cannot even imagine. All you need is rooting your phone and get the taste of PAC rom and unleash the true power of android and use the android the way you have never used it before. Rooting your phone may let you enjoy these features and you can also install a large number of custom roms available out there and all are free to use.
