Stock ROM and its Advantages

A Stock ROM/Firmware is the official and most stable compatible Android software which is specially made for a particular handset model by the smartphone manufacturer. Due to the device stability and limitations, a Stock ROM doesn’t provide you the access to customize your device like Custom ROMs. That’s why Stock ROMs come with a locked bootloader. Therefore, you can’t tweak or root your device easily without unlocking the bootloader.

But nowadays device manufacturers provide bootloader unlocking options or tools for user demand.
