A ROM stands for read only memory and the ROMs we generally talk about an Android partition gets written to that partition.

  • Lewa OS ROM:

    Lewa OS is a fork of Android OS with heavy changes in the User Interface. Fortunately, the User Interface changes for the better. If you were starting to get bored of the same Android UI on your device, don't waste a second and try this rom on your Canvas 2 now!

    Download: Lewa OS v13.05.24 (About 202 Megabytes)

    • Doesn't work well with Crossbreeder. You don't need to care about this if you don't know what it is.
    • Using OTG requires you to use OTG Mount Helper app.

  • JMP ROM:

    JMP ROM was one of the very first roms released for Micromax A110 Canvas 2 and enjoys a good feedback from its users. I am sure you too won't regret downloading it.

    This rom has been developed by Jiggar M. Pattani and has its thread here.


    JMP ROM v11.5 (About 113 Megabytes)

  • Suvi ROM:

    Suvi ROM has been developed by bsuhas, and just like JMP rom, enjoys mostly positive feedback from its users. It is definitely worth a shot. The official xda thread for this rom is here.

    Download link for the latest version of the rom have been removed for unknown reasons. Go to the thread to check if it is back ( and if it is comment on this post to let me know).

    Known Bugs:

  • Raven ROM:

    As Akshit Patel, the rom developer, puts it, this rom features a dark theme in most of its applications and  provides UI that is never seen before. To see if all that is true, you will have to try it out. The xda support thread for this rom can be found here.


    Raven ROM v2 (About 222 Megabytes)

    Known Bugs: Clicking Battery option in Settings leads to a Force Close. Also, the network signal stays even when it is not working.

  • Stock Jelly Bean ROM:
    Wasn't it  a list of custom roms for Micromax A110? Yes, it was, but according to me Stock ROM is the most stable rom for any phone and given that no rom for Canvas 2 has been built from source and are just aggregation of tweaks, you can try all those tweaks on your stock ROM itself. If you want to revert to the stock jelly bean rom for Micromax A110, head here. As expected, it is totally bugless.
This is it. Whew, it took me a lot of time to gauge user's response for the bucketloads of roms available of Micromax A110 and to select the best few.
