You can install many neat custom ROMs on your AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone. We have gathered a collection of what are the clear standout favorites among the S5 ROM pack for your device with the model number SM-G900A.
A custom ROM on your AT&T S5 replaces the stock ROM that comes with your device out of the box. There are a few reasons why we have third-party developers creating these ROMs. Most notably is the fact that you can start updating to newer software updates. For example, your manufacturer (Samsung) might not be updating you from Android 5.0 to Android 6.0, but there might be a custom ROM already out there waiting for you to try Android 6.0 on your device. Other people prefer the unique features, better performance, better features and additional enhancements these third-party developers give over the official Android developers.
Files you need:
- You sometimes need to know how to root your AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900A) before you can flash a new ROM on your device.
- You need to install a custom recovery on the Samsung Galaxy A5 before you can start installing custom ROMs on the smartphone.
- Google apps are the most important part of a custom ROM because without these you can’t hangout with friends or download apps (Play Store) or check your mail (G Mail) on your phone. So, download the suitable Google apps zip package for your phone from here.
- One thing you really need to know that you should backup your important files stored on your phone like contacts, messages, music or photos. You can do that by using any smart phone manager on your PC.
