Blaze Custom Rom for Karbonn A5

Here is the Blaze Custom rom for Karbonn A5. Not all developers concentrate on making a rom on Android 2.3 when they have the working roms for the next Android versions. This rom is considered to be a successor of the BackStreetMod series. They were one of the all time hits. But to say the truth, the developer of Blaze Custom Rom,Guneet Atwal has made this mode better than any other till date. The features of the Blaze Custom Rom are unbelievable.

Some of  the features have been ported from CyanogenMod 10.1 of  other mobiles. The developer has promised that the rom would be highly customizable. And yes! it is true. Some days before, Karbonn A5 users got their CyanogenMod that was working with a few bugs. But I am sure that users are more excited about Blaze Rom  than CyanogenMod 10.
