      But my suggestion is root your Rom and change according to you as like custom Rom

    2. try LEWO rom. it is off-course better than stock rom..10x times better than v2..
      trust me.. i have experienced all three ROM available for Micromax A110Q…

    3. yes prajwal

      lewo Rom is batter but stock Rom is also batter because Micromax not much modify of Rom and we are use default Android version. so i think Google is make best for us. they always try to make batter for us. Now Google release Android 4.4 KitKat. this is also great version and i am share camera, keyboard and boot animation app of Android 4.4. try to use these app and share your view with us.

      thanks to share
