Stock Rooted Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM for Sprint Galaxy S5!

For those of you who want to enjoy the latest TouchWiz-based Lollipop for your Sprint Galaxy S5, check out either the ported version of international Lollipop or slightly-modded stock rooted Lollipop ROM.

For the ported international version, you will get a working wifi hotspot, working call recording, KNOX removed, call blocking for calls/MMS/video, and modded MMS so your MMS will work out of the box. I actually like this version over the Sprint version because it has zero Sprint bloatware and also you will be able to experience 100% what the international S5 users get. The only thing not working on the ported version is your Wifi Calling so if you must use that feature, I highly suggest to use the Sprint Lollipop instead. The performance and battery life is excellent on this version, I have tested over a week while using it over at CES 2015 in Las Vegas.

How to Backup/Restore ROM on Rooted Galaxy S5!

If you have not used a rooted Galaxy S5 before, you probably want to read the rest of this tutorial on how to backup and restore ROM on your S5.

What is a ROM backup?

A ROM backup consists of everything on your phone, your whole OS along with all of your settings, apps, app data, and everything else except the contents of your personal files such as videos, photos, and others.  Backing up a ROM means you are making an exact 100% copy of your current OS.  Whether you are running stock ROM or CyanogenMod11, backing up ROM will backup your current ROM.  Think of it as System Backup for Windows or TimeMachine for OSX.
