      hi @amrit, sorry to hear that you are facing your issues with the current ROM, i would like to tell you that rooting is a different thing and flashing is a different thing. Rooting just opens up your device so that you can customize the device whereas with flashing you can update or add a new rom to your device. we have noted your request and soon will come out with a solution for you. Till then stay tuned to androidadvices

      yes justin there is no need for rooting if you will not be using hard core apps which require you to root your device so as to get the root access.
