  • Unlocking your phone’s boot loader if its locked
  • Flashing Custom Recovery
  • Wiping everything out
  • Installing a Custom ROM
  • Installing Google Apps if the ROM doesn’t include it.

Following the horrible looking procedure, mentioned above, might not what you are looking for. If you are not facing any problem with your phone’s speed, Performance or App Support, and you just don’t like the way your phone’s UI Looks and works, You can pretty much solve your this problem by just Installing a custom Launcher from Google’s Playstore.
