For this week’s Galaxy S5 ROM of the week, check out Alliance ROM.
Based on SM-G900F European Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware, Alliance ROM can be installed on European (SM-G900F), Asian (SM-900I), T-Mobile (SM-G900T), Canadian (SM-G900W8), and probably any other Qualcomm-based GSM Galaxy S5.
UPDATE: There’s a new version, CLICK HERE to see it instead of this one!!!
I am currently running this ROM on my T-Mobile Galaxy S5 and one of the best features is that I can wifi tether on my grandfathered, unlimited data plan without having to pay T-Mobile twice for the same internet I already paid for). You will lose Wifi-Calling though so don’t install international ROMs on your T-Mobile Galaxy S5 unless you don’t use Wifi-Calling much like myself.
Alliance ROM comes completely de-bloated (no bloatware) while keeping most of the core Samsung apps with 100% KNOX-free. The major core of Aliiance ROM comes with its Alliance Manager and ROM Customizer app.
To get Alliance Manager app, you will first need to download ROM Customizer app from the Play Store and install the latest Alliance OTA Update (for me that was Update 4).
Once you get it working, you can fully customize your Galaxy S5 to your liking as it comes with over 10 different themes and ability for you to also customize almost every single color.
