    I am not an expert, in fact I am only learning this stuff.

    Why would you want to do this?

    I bought a phone on a different network than my own. I am with 3 and the phone is from orange. I wanted to remove the orange software and replace it with a different ROM.
    Using the CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY app is one of the tools you need.
    My phone is running faster and i can use various different apps which would not be possible it i kept the Orange branding.
    Google your phone and add roms into the search and see what comes up. You have to be interested in this kinda stuff to appreciate the difference it can make. You don’t have to be a techie but you need some basic compression of installing and configuring apps.

    Hope this is of some help.
