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! [Best ROM]

Without a doubt, probably the best custom ROM to run on your Galaxy S5 is Resurrection Remix ROM.

Based on latest Android 6.0.1, Resurrection Remix ROM brings your Galaxy S5 up to speed with excellent performance, battery life, and a slew of great tweaks.

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.

For those of you looking for a good CM AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) to run on your Galaxy S5, try the latest CM12.1 ROM builds by XDA user Albinoman887.
