Resurrection Remix ROM for Galaxy S5! [Fingerprint/Marshmallow]

If you are still on older Lollipop or older Marshmallow ROM, you should definitely check out the latest Resurrection Remix ROM as it brings a ton of new features your Galaxy S5 needs.

Based on latest Android 6.0.1, the Resurrection Remix ROM gives you full fingerprint support.  Not only that, it makes it better than stock TouchWiz since fingerprint works without having to turn the screen on.  Simply swipe your finger and your phone will unlock, just like newer Nexus 6P or 5X.  I find this alone worth installing the ROM.

How to Convert Galaxy S5 into Galaxy S6! [Sixperience ROM]

Probably the biggest reason to root and install custom ROM is the fact that you can update your phone with updated software from a newer phone.  In this case, you can in fact turn your Galaxy S5 into Galaxy S6 by using a custom ROM like Sixperience ROM.

The Sixperience ROM has been ported straight from a real Galaxy S6, giving you all the new software features including Galaxy S6 theme engine, resizable floating windows, S6 apps, and much more.  Of course, you get a nice AROMA graphical installer also, allowing you to choose from three different kernels (you can overclock using Boeffla or KToonsez kernel) and even choose from two cameras (Note 4 or S5).
