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.

How to Update AT&T Galaxy S5 with Lollipop and Root!

For those of you with a rooted AT&T Galaxy S5 and still have not updated to Lollipop, here’s how you can easily update to Android 5.0 Lollipop and also keep root.  This method is preferred over flashing stock firmware as you will be able to keep root.

First, you will need to download FlashFire.  To do that, first sign up for Android FlashFire G+ Community, then sign up for the beta FlashFire here.  Once you do those two, open up this link with your Play Store app and you should be able to install FlashFire app.

Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM + Root for Galaxy S5! [CM12 Beta]

For those of you who want to taste the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop, you don’t have to wait until Samsung updates their firmware, which could be months away.

Better, just grab the latest CM12 ROM beta, which is a full Android 5.0 Lollipop custom ROM that will give you every Lollipop feature including the vastly improved performance (near 20-30% improvement in Antutu benchmarks as shown in video, which matches Note 4 stock Antutu benchmarks!!!), battery life (along with battery saver feature which can save you in emergencies), and superfluid UI, which you can actually feel.

Android 4.4.2 NE6 + Root for T-Mobile Galaxy S5!

For those of you who rooted your T-Mobile Galaxy S5 and couldn’t update to the latest NE6 Android 4.4.2 update using OTA (over-the-air), you can just grab the Android 4.4.2 NE6 Stock ROM zip file made by XDA user BeansTown106.

This is 100% exact same version you can use to install using CWM or TWRP recovery, that way you don’t have to unroot or install stock firmware, both which can take a long time to do.
