Alliance ROM for Galaxy S5! [TouchWiz Lollipop]


For those of you who must stick with TouchWiz for some reason (perhaps you have an S-View cover or use Gear S watch), let me suggest a great custom ROM based on latest TouchWiz firmware, the Alliance ROM.

Alliance ROM is available for AT&T SM-G900A, T-Mobile SM-G900T, Verizon SM-G900V, Canadian SM-G900W8, and SM-G900F/G900M/G900I.

First, Alliance ROM brings you a ton of free themes you can choose from.  What I really like is that each of these themes come with its own custom keyboard.  E.g. If you install Iron Man theme, you will get Iron Man themed keyboard.  You can download and install hundreds of free themes using the Alliance Control app.

Also, you can even customize your own theme, the Alliance Control app gives you full control so you can change the colors down to the detail.  And yes, once you create a new theme, you can easily save and share with others.

Of course, it doesn’t end there.  With Alliance Control app, you will get customization options normally found on AOSP ROMs like being able to fully customize your status bar, notification panel, system animations, hardware buttons, navigation bar, and much more.

For performance, the international model comes with KTWeaker kernel and app which allows you to easily overclock to 2.764Ghz (my recommended settings) and bump your performance to Note 3 level.  Overall, Alliance ROM is excellent choice that’s going to give you lots of customization options along with fast performance so definitely give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    I like this ROM but is just horrible for battery life on my Canadian variant S5. KTweaker is set at 300 & 2457 lower values than your recommended in video. There should be a way to reset theme setting back to stock. When you install different themes to see what they’re like you get a mishmash of two and sometimes three themes. After getting phone just the way I like it I’m finding that I’m only getting 6 hours of battery life even with low usage. I really liked this ROM so It’s a shame that I have to revert back to Twi5ted Lollipop ROM because I was getting close to 150% more battery life.
