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

android7-1-nougat-galaxys5-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.

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.

    Bluetooth worked good for a few minutes, after I attempted a fourth file to transfer from my older phone it failed to recognize or even show my S5.

    Additionally, after Bluetooth had failed I went transfer via Android Beam however the NFC completely failed and wouldn’t even start. It kept getting stuck when I tried to turn it on however never actually did.

    Lastly, maybe I am doing something wrong or there’s an easy way to fix this, however the screen brightness will constantly change without the auto brightness turned on. I select max brightness and it will fluctuate levels of brightness.

    Other than these extremely minor issues (to me anyways) its an excellent ROM so far and is extremely fast. Not sure about battery life either as I am still downloading my old apps.

    Will this works on a SM-G900M?

    After installing Super SU the WiFi does not show in the phone, like it has not WiFi Network card.

  4. GP says:

    Titanium Backup does not work with the ROM root, but if I install Super SU then I cannot switch on WiFi.

    Esta versão da ROM pode ser usada diariamente ?

    When i connect with a otg cable my phone crash.

  7. Dimitri says:

    Tried installing SuperSU, was informed by the app the SU binary has to be update. I did this through the app but then got stuck in a boot loop. Wouldn’t even read through my computer turning on or shut off (not sure if it normally does or not anyways). Do NOT update your SU Binary or you will be forced to reinstall the OS.

    And PS, if you do have to reinstall the ROM, do not wipe the data, just the system and both caches. Once you reinstall the ROM your phone will be exactly how you left it before the crash!

    I am having the same issues as the people above me when i try installing supersu the wifi stops working and wont let me enable it

  9. Carlos says:

    It’s not necessary install SuperSU, because CM14 already include it in main installation. Just active it in Developer options menu.

    • Dimitri says:

      Assuming you meant we can activate it in the developers options, where do you find that? I look through the whole list and nothing relating to SuperSU, is it under a different name or just another word (I don’t know much about the morr detailed things in electronics).

      • Korboratov says:

        Its under Root Access.

        • Dimitri says:

          Under Root Access I have the following:
          Disabled
          Apps Only
          ADB Only
          Apps and ADB

          What I have selected right now is “Apps and ADB”, is this what is needed? Is rooting and Super SU the same thing? I thought it was different…

      • Roman says:

        I usually never leave a comment but I just wanted to say thank you 🙂
        I went to Developers Options -> Root Access -> Apps and ADB and rooting successfully worked! Have a great day if you read that 😉

    I’ve downloaded the latest updates for cm14 on the s5 and keep getting a no sim card error. How can I fix this?

    • Ash says:

      Delete cache how ever you spell it and do not update

    • Roman says:

      Had the same thing yesterday, here is my solution (Factory reset again =( ):
      Download cm14.1 rom
      Download gapps for android 7.1 (or 7.1.1 idk maybe its the same)
      Recovery Mode (TWRP) -> flash rom (flash = install) -> Restart in recovery -> flash gapps –> remove dalvik cache (maybe you dont need to but I did) -> restart phone.
      Remember, you dont need SuperSU anymore since it is already installed in ROM.

      Root: Developers Options -> Root Access -> Apps and ADB

  14. Ash says:

    I have a problem with the Gapps. Someone link a proper 1 please

    • Roman says:

      the cm14.0 rom is for android 7.0 (i guess), so you need gapps for android 7.0.
      the cm14.1 rom is for android 7.1, you need gapps for android 7.1.

  15. Gaurav Panta says:

    Give me a reply after a version without many bugs is available. Installed this version, it didnt have the option to choose CM themes. the fingerprint unlock doesnt work too well when i picked it up after it was idle for a while (when the screen was off).

  16. Gildartz says:

    In order to intall this ROM, the install the SuperSU thing is a must to do step? Cuz i do not want to have root in my device.

        Yo i tried your method, and it didn’t show up, could u really out the steps out slowly and specifically just to make sure i am doing this right, thank roman

  18. Jared says:

    This is the best ROM I’ve used so far with this phone and am very pleased. Per usual there are bugs and I’ve got one in particular I need help with. The network data cuts out all the time and won’t work unless I shut it off and re-enable it. But after so long it will cut back out. Any ideas on what I can do about this? WiFi works fine, and when the data is working out works well.

    Where are the download links?!

  20. hebbo says:

    Worked on my SMl-G900i (Australian).

    Only had it for a few hours so far but I can’t find any issue. The phone is super quick now. Much more than wit the stock 6.0.1 Android version.

    Thanks for publishing this!
