Install International ROMs on T-Mobile/Canadian Galaxy S5!


For those of you wondering whether you can install international ROMs on the T-Mobile or Canadian Galaxy S5, let me tell you it is possible.

With previous Galaxy S4, doing this was possible also and with Galaxy S5, you can do the same.

This means you can install custom ROMs for SM-G900F/SM-G900I on the T-Mobile Galaxy S5 SM-G900T or Canadian Galaxy S5 SM-900W8. And yes, you should be able to install T-Mobile or Canadian custom ROMs also on international phones like SM-G900F/SM-G900I.

I might have forgotten some models here but in general, so long as you have a Qualcomm-based Galaxy S5, it should be compatible with other Qualcomm-based Galaxy S5 models.

The same doesn’t go for Sprint or Verizon Galaxy S5 as they use CDMA networks but there may be a way through custom ROMs that support multi-carrier.

For AT&T S5, this case should be the same but since AT&T Galaxy S5 has a locked bootloader, you will have to use Safestrap, which may be possible (but I have not tried it yet, I will update this page when that is the case.)

If you are wondering whether your Galaxy S5 is compatible, just leave a comment and I will do my best to give you my advice.

Currently, I am running SM-G900F Alliance custom ROM just fine on my T-Mobile Galaxy S5 SM-G900T. This means I lose Wifi-Calling since it’s not a T-Mobile ROM but I gain Wifi HotSpot working out of the box as international ROMs don’t have the software block that’s on the T-Mobile S5.

    I have been trying very hard to figure out where I can find custom ROMs for the US Cellular Galaxy S5 (SM-G900R4). I would reallyyy appreciate it if you can help me figure out where I can find the ROMs. I generally prefer to get my ROMs from XDA but I couldn’t find anything that specifically stated that the ROMs support this specific model. Anyway if you could help me that’d be awesome! Thank you!
