For those of you who want to convert your aging Galaxy S5 into Galaxy S7 Edge, there is now a custom ROM that will do that for you, the Insanity ROM.
Based on latest Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935F firmware Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, this is a “ported” custom ROM that gives you every software feature of S7 Edge right on your S5!
Of course, there are several things not working yet such as NFC, fingerprint sensor, and Always On Screen but they should eventually get fixed and I will have on update when it does.
But everything else works, which is awesome. You will be able to enjoy Galaxy S7’s new UI, launcher with grid size and new TouchWiz themes, Edge screen panels, and much much more.
The ROM does also come with DPI changer app, full root with SuperSU, and even its own ROM Control via Insanity Control app which allows you to easily tweak your status bar, navigation buttons/add soft keys, enable auto call recording, and more.
Overall, this is a great way to convert your Galaxy S5 into an S7 Edge, so check it out this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
You can install this ROM on T-Mobile SM-G900T, Canadian SM-G900W8, international SM-G900F/G900I/G900M, and I am currently working on getting it bootin’ on Sprint/Verizon Galaxy S5 which should be available shortly.
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM/EFS, format system, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot.
You will also need to install Marshmallow bootloaders using ODIN, see video tutorial on how to do this.
