Fusion ROM for Galaxy S5! [Android 5.0.2][3Ghz OC]


For this week’s ROM of the week, check out the latest Fusion ROM by XDA user Dragon7780.

Based on latest Android 5.0.2, Fusion ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) with lots of customization, 4K video recording, and even custom kernel with overclocking support up to 3Ghz!

I’ve tried many AOSP ROMs on my S5 lately but by far Fusion ROM has the most features (that I like) along with a working 4K camera and overclocking kernel out of the box.

For customization, Fusion ROM brings you App Circle Bar, custom system animations, screen recording, DPI changer, quick setting tiles customization/re-ordering, PIE controls, Gesture Anywhere, Viper4Android Equalizer, KTweaker Kernel tweaker app, and much much more.

For overclocking, I do recommend 2.764Ghz for maximum frequency as it’s very stable and will get your Galaxy S5 just as fast as a Note 4.  (Theoretically, you can go higher if you can cool the phone a bit.  E.g. You live in Alaska and the temperature is very low outside, you may be able to get it to 3Ghz stable.)  Even without overclocking, the Fusion ROM is zippy as hell but the option is there for gamers/overclockers.

And yes, 4K recording is FINALLY available on AOSP ROMs, Fusion ROM is one of the first to support it out of the box!  So, definitely give Fusion ROM a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think (but I LOVE IT!).

    Please make a rkom for S5 g900h i beg you.
    there is not a single custom rom and all the G900H users want to so badly.
    Please Please

  3. LaGra says:

    Very nice article, but first Downloadlink does not work
    for me…

    can you fix it please?

  4. Tom Harkins says:

    It’s not recognizing my extSD…and I need it to do so, so I can restore my backups from Titanium Backup Pro. Any suggestions?

  5. Reg says:

    I was wondering if you were having issues with your video players on the fusion ROM? None of them work for me! Thank you for all you do!

  6. Danny says:

    Do you also need a 5.0 bootloader to run this Rom?

  7. Lee says:

    Can I root the stock official 5.0 lollipop SM-G900F or do I need to roll back to 4.4.2 KitKat before rooting my device? I’ve seen that many post on different forums/threads saying you can’t and saying you can, I’m feeling a bit confused lol

  8. Rob says:


    The download link was broken, so I went to XDA and downloaded the one from Dragon. Are these the same? I flashed and really liked the ROM at first, then it turns out that voice calling has tremendous bugs. If I try to call, the call goes through, but you can’t hear anything. Same with receiving calls. Sometimes it works most times it does not.
    It’s sad, because the rest of the ROM is awesome. I hope it gets fixed.
    I was trying it on an SM-900F

  9. Bartek says:

    How do you update everything in this ROM?

    I would appreciate a detailed answer.

    Thank you for this amazing ROM.

  10. Ruben says:

    I installed this rom on my Sprint s5, tried it first with simple wipe data/Factory restore, kept force restarting. Tried the mounts/system format and same thing. Then using phils touch cwm recovery, did a clean install again, and same problem. Didn’t even try to restore my old apps. THEN I did it a third time, and it set it up as a new device with my google account, and problem was still the same. Could you do an instructional video on installing this rom? Or maybe give me a few possible reasons why I am getting this issue? I don’t understand what I am doing wrong.

    • Ruben says:

      UPDATE: Was using the root update zip file from a different post. Did not install that and used the root option in PCWM recovery. Forced restarts seem to have stopped, until i install superuser from playstore and try running it. Then the issues come right back….

      • Ruben says:

        UPDATE 2: OK, seems this rom does not need super user app, Figured that out by flashing and NOT flashing a root app or installing SU from app store., then installing root checker and the device passed. it had a built in script for allowing root access. SO apparently that is what was causing the my issues with force restarting, i guess it can be called double root. Gonna run this for a full day and see if problem returns. Figured I would update on this in case anyone else is having a similar problem and can see a potential fix.

        • Ruben says:

          So final update. Roms been running buttery smooth for almost 3 weeks now. Just a question for the rest of the class. Does anyone have a stock video player app on their phone? I know I can access video and movie files via gallery and have already installed a third party app, but just wondering if my phone I s missing something. Second, hqa anyone found a way to use multiscreen or the fingerprint scanner while using this ROM?

  11. Matthew says:

    Been having issues with this ROM since installing. My APN settings are correct however I continue to have my data stop working, issue is happening on 3G/4G as well as Wifi.

  12. Rob says:

    I’m gonna try this version of the ROM, the one I downloaded was a 2015.02.02. Hopefully voice calling is ok with this one…

  13. Bartek says:

    Fast charge and NFC fully working as well.

  14. Gabriel says:

Once again Max great job thanks again for your site and videos. Couldn’t do it without you.. Well I actually could just it take me a little longer to do and fined..lo. Thanks, Max!

  19. Kamil says:

    I have flashed the Fusion Rom onto my Sprint Galaxy S5 SM-G900P and as with every Lolipop Rom that I flash I have the same issue. When using Bluetooth in my car I am able to make and receive calls through the radio which is Microsoft SYNC by the way. But Media does not work. I have tried Spotify, YouTube, and even the built in media player that comes with the Rom with no luck.

    Any info or help with this matter would be greatly appreciated.

  23. Chris says:

  24. Eric says:

    I tried this on my G900W8 and was unable to play to bluetooth headphones, which has happened a lot in Lollipop ROMs for me

  26. Mr.D says:

    If in your video you show that Fusion ROM has an option to allow root access so do you really need to install SuperSU and I have but nothing pops up when I click to open it…

  27. TEO says:

    This is the best ROM so far, but like everything custom we have couple
    BUTS..like Whatsapp can’t verify “something about the privacy” the
    facebook contacts doesn’t sync, etc, etc this ROM its fast super good
    in battery BUT the thing that I really want to work flawless doesn’t work.

    I tried to do this your way its all about catching viruses and paying for software to make this all happen ,and then risk the chance of cooking my phone ,not seeing the step by step you are referring to ,I actually wasted the better part of the day trying to figure out how to go about getting the custom rom installed . think I will just leave my phone alone until ,I can actually understand how to do this ,maybe another web site might be an option

  38. kroninn says:

  43. cj says:

    Installed fusion and the kitkat fusion icon comes on the screen but i cant get past it.. what do i do?

  44. Ryan J. says:

    Love this Rom!…….Only problem is that my 900T kept on rebooting if I overclock to 2764mhz(Fusion kernel). So I flashed the Latest Ktoons kernel and replaced Fusions Kernel tweaker to KTweaker-v9.1 in which fixed my problem. I’m using the Ktoonsified v4 profile (@2764mhz) and it made my S5 LagFree.

    • Hannes says:

      my settings are not stick at all constantly resetting, tried setting overclock my self no luck, tried profiles no luck always the same thing settings resetting don’t matter what I do. Any advice or suggestions ? The only thing that helps is reinstalling kernel, now using kt kernel 9.1, otherwise when working it’s very stable and no reboots.

  45. george says:

    Hello I am in Canada I installed this rom amazing it was perfect with rogers and I loved it I recently moved to public mobile . And unfortunately fusion does not recognize public mobile I was able to connect to telus with public mobile Sim as its p.m is owned by Telus but I could only make calls. LTE not working I tried to manually add it but no luck fusion would not let me. Please is there a work around this I love this rom.

  46. OUSCA2007 says:

  47. Lennon says:

    I am having trouble after installing this rom
    first it wouldnt let me copy anything over to the internal storage it kept saying that the device is not responding or unplugged
    so then i tried factory resetting everything and after all that the internal storage doesn even show up anymore!
    I have not made back up of anything so this is all I am running i was trying to copy over the stock rom to flash and back up but i cant copy anything over now! !!!!!!!!!!!!!HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. Randy says:

    Another case of no GPS. Even updated to newer version. Is this a CM-based ROM? Has anyone figured this out? I love this ROM, but don’t know if I can do without GPS. Please reply with ideas….thanks!

  49. george says:

    Hey the problem I have is my connection with LTE now I tried to manually enter public mobile settings but the rom wont save them I am currently on the stock rom but I would prefer the speed of fusion
    I just can’t save the apn settings

  50. Hannes says:

    Hi Max, my settings are not sticking at all, i tried using custom preset profiles from the ktweaker shop, not working, I tried to set the overclock and voltage settings my self aswell, but it’s always the same not sticking and ktweaker says settings are not enabled even if they are. I tried everything but the settings just reset and not sticking at all. Phone works great otherwise no reboots it’s very stable. When this reset happens the profiles can no longer be set etc. The only solution is to reinstall kernel, but can’t keep on reinstalling it over and over

    • Bruno says:

      Probably the archive is currupted try open the archive with rar win on your PC if the archive do not open the archive is corrupted .
      To solve you just need to download and apply the zip again . To be sure archive is not corrupted , before flash try open with winrar. If it open just flash your phone and be happy

  54. Keensy says:

    There is no menu button in apps any more is there a way of enabling it ?

  55. Bruno says:

    I have problem with Root.
    To solve I just have Rooted my SM G900F like the normal Rom with Sproid base G900FXXU1BNL2. Sorry for my bad english I will write in portuguese (so if you do not understand just go to google translator and paste lool)

    Eu tinha o problema que a rom não tinha o root.
    Para resolver eu rootei o celular como se ele tivesse a rom original da samsung com a versão base G900Fxxu1bnl2, estou utilizando a 3 dias e está tudo certinho até agora.

  56. Tony says:
