How to Convert Galaxy S5 into Galaxy S6! [Sixperience ROM]


Probably the biggest reason to root and install custom ROM is the fact that you can update your phone with updated software from a newer phone.  In this case, you can in fact turn your Galaxy S5 into Galaxy S6 by using a custom ROM like Sixperience ROM.

The Sixperience ROM has been ported straight from a real Galaxy S6, giving you all the new software features including Galaxy S6 theme engine, resizable floating windows, S6 apps, and much more.  Of course, you get a nice AROMA graphical installer also, allowing you to choose from three different kernels (you can overclock using Boeffla or KToonsez kernel) and even choose from two cameras (Note 4 or S5).

This ROM can be installed on most S6 models including SM-G900F/G900I/G900M, Canadian SM-G900W8, T-Mobile SM-G900T, Korean SM-G900S/K/T, and few more. (AT&T SM-G900A should be supported soon.)

There are couple things not working like fingerprint sensor (as S6 fingerprint software is not compatible with S5 fingerprint sensor) and world clock widget but other than that, the ROM itself runs rather good with great battery life.  If you are looking to turn your Galaxy S5 into an S6, definitely try out this ROM this week(end) and do let me know what you think!


Download Sixperience ROM for Galaxy S5 for SM-G900F/G900I/G900M, Canadian SM-G900W8, T-Mobile SM-G900T, Korean SM-G900S/K/T

Installation Instructions:

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install SuperSU and reboot.  (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system.  For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)

          • rayandan says:

            If you have a backup of the bootloader, you can restore it after installing the ROM. After that, you can choose to wipe/factory reset before rebooting the system or you can go ahead and reboot without factory reset. I’m using TWRP btw.

    Any news on getting this for SM-G900P (Sprint)? Happy to donate, want to make my S5 into an S6 to use with the Samsung Gear VR I bought my wife. She already has an s6 of course.

    I did already root and install recovery.
