BasketBuild is the biggest custom ROM repository at the moment. Not only custom ROM, the repository also contains various files such as Bootloaders, Modems, MODs, custom recoveries etc. BasketBuild has now become the number 1 choice for custom ROM developers. Be it LineageOS, Resurrection Remix or any other custom ROM, you will find its builds uploaded on BasketBuild.
BasketBuild was operating through a website so far. All the custom ROM developers drop the BasketBuild links to their custom ROMs on the ROM threads. Recently, an application of BasketBuild made its way to the FDroid repository. It’s the same source where we found the OpenGApps application as well. I gave a try to the BasketBuild application and I was quite impressed. The application is named as BasketBuild Downloader.
Instead of going to the BasketBuild website and download the custom ROM, you can now directly download a custom ROM on the internal storage of your phone. BasketBuild application shows you a list of all the builds of a custom ROM that you are looking for. In order to use this application, you must know the codename of your Android handset and also the custom ROM name i.e. AOKP or any other.
The only utility of this application is that you don’t have to copy files between your computer and the phone. BasketBuild keeps all the files on your phone. It’s also very easy to spot the latest version of a custom ROM. This application sorts the ROM builds on the basis of the release date.
To install the BasketBuild application on your phone, you must have the FDroid application. In case you don’t have the FDroid, you can simply grab the BasketBuild Downloader APK in order to install it directly. Custom ROM users can download the BasketBuild Downloader APK from here and install it by following the instructions given in this tutorial.
