For this week’s Sprint Galaxy S5 SM-G900P ROM of the Week, check out MOAR ROM!
Based one latest Android 4.4.2 Sprint NE5 firmware, MOAR ROM brings you an excellent combination of features along with tweaked performance/battery life for ultimate S5 experience.
MOAR ROM is also available for Note 3, see here.
MOAR stands for “Mother-of-All-ROMs” and I have personally tried MOAR ROM on many older Galaxy devices like Sprint S3 and the Sprint Note 2. It is developed by XDA user Rompnit, who is an excellent developer who I have followed for many years and highly recommend MOAR ROM.
This is a great custom ROM for noobs and experience flasholics as you will get more functionality out of your Sprint S5, allowing your phone to be better than others who use stock firmware.
First off, MOAR ROM gives you quad multi-window out of the box with all apps enabled by default. You can easily get more work done with 4 windows along with the fact that you do not have to use any 3rd-party apps to add your favorite apps to multi-window.
And I know many of you are big on using WiFi Tether/Mobile Hotspot and this ROM has it unlocked out of the box. Sprint has really good 4G LTE service lately (in my testings with the other 3 major U.S. carriers, especially for upload speeds) and there’s no reason why you shoudn’t take advantage over it just because Sprint locked it.
As for customization of your UI, you will have 14 different themes to choose from, make your phone look like HTC One, Xperia Z2, Xiaomi, or even an iPhone if you are an ex-iWhore. Not only that, you will find “MOAR Mod Control” in Settings menu that will allow you to change every little detail of your status bar (change battery icon, position of clock, change colors), toggles, lockscreen, Power Menu (add screenshot, flashlight, data), and more. Call-recording is also enabled by default and MOAR ROM comes with goodies like AdAway app, PIE Controls, and Xposed App Settings app (see link to tutorial under Extra MODs at bottom of this post).
Overall, MOAR ROM represents stock Sprint firmware on steroids. If you are still running stock ROM, you are definitely missing out so definitely give this ROM a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
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!
