Twi5ted Lollipop ROM for Galaxy S5!

For those of you who want to enjoy Lollipop to the fullest with stable 2.764Ghz overclocking and super-fast UI, try the latest Twi5ted Lollipop ROM by XDA user The Sickness and the Deviant Team.


Based on latest Android 5.0 T-Mobile firmware, the Twi5ted Lollipop ROM is the fastest TouchWiz S5 ROM I have ever tried!  And it can be installed on T-Mobile, Canadian, SM-G900F, and most other S5 with Qualcomm CPU.


Out of the box, Twi5ted Lollipop ROM is so fast, you wouldn’t believe it was TouchWiz.  In fact, this is faster than most AOSP ROMs like CM12.  The ROM also comes with 2.764Ghz overclocking out of the box so you don’t have to mess with overclock settings.  With that, I was able to score near 48,000 on Antutu, which is pretty good.



The Twi5ted ROM also comes with 400 different system fonts you can easily switch to using the system font menu along with 14 different TouchWiz themes you can switch. Other notable features include 3Minit battery mod for custom battery icons, Viper4Android for tweaking your sound, working private mode, unlocked wifi tether, new lockscreen effects, and some more.

Overall, this is one of the best custom ROMs on the Galaxy S5 that’s going to blow your mind away with its blazingly-fast speeds, so definitely give this guy a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!


Download Twi5ted Lollipop ROM for Galaxy S5 (T-Mobile, Canadian, SM-G900F, and other S5 with Qualcomm CPU)

*Note – DO NOT INSTALL on Galaxy S5 with Exynos CPU, you WILL HARD BRICK!!! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.

To install ROM, reboot into CWM or TWRP Recovery, make a backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot.  If coming from the same firmware (such as installing on Sprint ROM on Sprint S5), you may try skipping wipe data/factory reset but do make a backup ROM!

Update – No bootloader update is required!

    Been using this for months now and one thing I noticed lately, that when you use the camera for video, the cpu gets really hot and it stopped it from recording. You can still take pictures, but not videos.
    Any one has the same issues? any work around? i’d like to keep using this ROM, would appreciate any advise on this. cheers

  19. widek says:

    hi i have a question . anybody knows haw to replace the ugly dialing /answering pad to the original from Samsung looks like. thanks

    • alljst4fn says:

      I have the same question but I don’t think there is any way of changing the look. I’ve looked into it and I couldn’t find any way in doing so unless you switch to an aosp rom. I don’t want to do this because I don’t want to lose Samsung features like finger print scanner. I’m hoping they update to 5.1 soon because one is supposed to be able to change the color scheme on dialer and contacts.

      • alljst4fn says:

        Just found this. If you go here- you will find updates and if you scroll down you will find extras. I added TWI5TED**LOLLIPOP**THE DARKNESS which got rid of that bright white keypad and contacts list, and flashlight and extra toggles. Hope this helps you out.

  23. Graham says:

    Anybody else having issues with Link2SD? The reason I rooted my phone and installed the Twi5ted Lollipop ROM was so I could link apps to the external storage, however, as soon as I do the phone slows down and starts to crash.

  24. JAmes says:

    It Works on SM- G 900M

  25. warby says:
