Android 7.1 Nougat for Galaxy S5! [CM14.1]

For those of you who want to get the latest Android 7.1 Nougat on your Galaxy S5, you can grab the latest CM14.1 ROM which will give you all the goodness of Nougat and even run the latest Pixel launcher along with Google Assistant.

Although not official build of CM14.1, this build includes everything working out of the box including data, voice, bluetooth, wifi, camera, etc…etc… Yes, even fingerprint works but I don’t like to use it much on the S5.

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.

This is probably the most stable and fastest Marshmallow-based custom ROM I have tried so far with pretty much everything working out of the box including voice, data, 4G LTE, bluetooth, 4K video camera, etc…etc…  So far, I haven’t been able to spot any bugs in the last few days I have been daily driving this ROM.

Stock Rooted Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM for Sprint Galaxy S5!

For those of you who want to enjoy the latest TouchWiz-based Lollipop for your Sprint Galaxy S5, check out either the ported version of international Lollipop or slightly-modded stock rooted Lollipop ROM.

For the ported international version, you will get a working wifi hotspot, working call recording, KNOX removed, call blocking for calls/MMS/video, and modded MMS so your MMS will work out of the box. I actually like this version over the Sprint version because it has zero Sprint bloatware and also you will be able to experience 100% what the international S5 users get. The only thing not working on the ported version is your Wifi Calling so if you must use that feature, I highly suggest to use the Sprint Lollipop instead. The performance and battery life is excellent on this version, I have tested over a week while using it over at CES 2015 in Las Vegas.
