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.
Performance is excellent on the CM14.1 ROM along with excellent battery life. For camera, everything works including 4K video recording so you should have no problems daily driving. CM14.1 also comes with usual CyanogenMod apps like screen recording, audio recording, AudioFX for tweaking sound on your speakers/headphones, status bar customization, and some more.
While Samsung has stopped updating the Galaxy S5, you should be able to still enjoy the latest Android OS fully with the CM14.1 ROM. Overall, this is an excellent way to upgrade your Galaxy S5 manually yourself so if you are still on Marshmallow or Lollipop, definitely give this a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
Note: For Verizon Galaxy S5, you MUST UNLOCK BOOTLOADER FIRST! – See Instructions here.
