The update brings, among other things:

Ever wondered what the whole Android custom ROM scene was about?
What is all this talk of installing "aftermarket", custom upgrades on your phone?
Who needs it? Why do it? Is it safe?
Don't fret - I'm here to explain - the AndroidPolice Academy is now in session.
By the way, the word ROM means R
