Alliance ROM for Galaxy S5! [SM-G900F/G900I/G900T/G900W8]


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.

To customize your theme, you can use ROM Customizer app and go into Advanced->ROM Settings.(as shown in video)  There, you will be able to change colors, customize backgrounds, enable cool stuff like CPU Usage panels, customize Power Menu (add screenshot button), and much more.

While it’s been less than a few weeks since Galaxy S5 launch, Alliance ROM brings you a lot of customization packed into one custom ROM that can be installed to many Galaxy S5 models.  Certainly, there’s more coming in the next upcoming weeks but if you don’t want to wait around, definitely make a backup ROM and try the Alliance ROM today and let me know what you think!

To install ROM, reboot into CWM or TWRP Recovery, make a backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot.  If coming from the same firmware (such as installing on SM-G900F ROM on SM-G900F), you may try skipping wipe data/factory reset.

    Will this ROM say 4G LTE like the stock ROM or will it just say 4G?

    • Tom says:

      I used this ROM for a bit and decided to uninstall it. Problems I had:
      1) Doesn’t tell me I’m on LTE or is not connecting to LTE;
      2) Wouldn’t connect to my Bluetooth headset;
      3) Keep showing the voice mail icon even though I use Google Voice for voice mail (couldn’t clear it and was just annoying);
      4) It actually seemed to use more battery life than the stock ROM.

      I’ve been using various ROMs on my S2 for sometime and this ROM seems okay, but with these annoyances/problems it just does not seem to give me any advantages over the stock or worth the “fight” to get it running properly. I can simply root and delete the bloatware I don’t want.
