CyanogenMod custom ROMs are famous for a lot of things. Something people do not know is that a huge upside of the CyanogenMod custom ROM is the privacy. When we grant an application from the Google Play Store certain permissions, it doesn’t have to stay that way forever. We know this thanks to the encryption for your texts that CyanogenMod comes with when you install the ROM.

The Resurrection Remix custom ROM doesn’t come with that same kind of upside with encryption, but it does have many features of its own that will also have it holding its own against the CyanogenMod builds. Furthermore, I’m personally friends with many people who say the Resurrection Remix custom ROMs are even more stable — something that the official CyanogenMod team prides themselves on.
