How to Convert Galaxy S5 into Galaxy S7 Edge!


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.

  12. oscar says:

    once turn of the screen and cant wake it up … *****

    • Jhonny Aze says:

      Ok Oscar u need to disable AOD (Always On Display). So if u are stuck pull battery, dont let the phone go to sleep and then go to settings and disable AOD. Once thats done you are good to go. Good Luck.

    • Fabian pabon says:

      Mine is doing the same. Once my screen goes black from inactivity it won’t come back on. I have to pull battery out and power back on. A simple power off with button will not reboot it.

  17. pmduper says:

    Thanks guys. Installed and working well. Nice!!

  18. pmduper says:

    UPDATE SM-G900i
    When receiving a phone call, the phone shows a blank screen in which I cannot answer the call. I tried different themes etc however no luck. I have since removed the ROM and gone back to Bliss. I’m hoping an update may resolve the problem as I found the ROM was excellent otherwise.

  19. max says:

    This rom installed flawlessly on my Canadian g900w8. However I used a more current root than the one provided but it was for 6.0.1. It runs very smooth and I was able to use nfc without any problems as well. It seems to still have the stock s5 camera. I thought that that was one of the tweaks but I guess not. Unless the new camera isn’t that different.

  20. Red says:

    Hello , this is very important
    But i have an question ,are my s5 duos model : g900fd will work with this rom or not (my model g900fd is also has cpu SD 801 i think will work but in one SIM not two SIM ) what you think ??

  31. Jeff says:

    After a few days with the insanity rom installed everything was working fine and now my battery is draining really fast any ideas to fix this. I heard that if you clear the cash in TWRP it should fix this and I am pretty sure you won’t lose anything? Any other suggestions?

  32. Phil says:

    SM-G900I Update
    It appears that the S-View Flip Cover, with Samsung ID Chip, when used with the S5, can cause intermittent problems with answering incoming calls. I disabled mine by placing a piece of tape over the contacts and now the Insanity ROM is working great.

    • Phil says:

      Insanity ROM has been performing well until yesterday. My battery drained in half the usual time. I cleared the cash in TWRP etc. Didn’t fix it.
      Any ideas?
