Prerequisites before installing custom ROM on Galaxy S5

You should remember that the CyanogenMod [official] CM13 custom ROM has to be installed only on the Samsung Galaxy S5 model to get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in the device. Therefore, to verify that you are installing the custom ROM on Galaxy S5, go to Settings > About phone > model number.

It is important to ensure a backup of your phone’s memory by installing Clockwork Mod Recovery or TWRP in the device. This is because the installation of custom ROM in the device will wipe away everything from its memory. You should use a USB driver to connect your phone with a PC. Before opting for the installation process, make sure that your phone is sufficiently charged so that it does not turn off midway.

The installation process

First connect your phone with your PC via a USB cord. Then, copy the Cyoanogen Mod Android 6.0 Marshmallow custom ROM and Google apps from the PC’s memory and paste it on your phone’s SD card memory. You should then disconnect your phone from the PC and turn off the device. Then, perform a Recovery Mode sortie by press holding the ‘Home’, ‘Volume (up)’ and ‘Power’ buttons.

Once you have entered the Recovery mode, enter ‘wipe data’ factory reset’ to clear off the phone’s memory and ‘wipe cache partition’ to delete everything from the cache memory.

Gently tap ‘install zip from SD card’ on the main recovery screen that will lead you to Android 6.0 file. After the installation is done, you can restart your Galaxy S5 by selecting ‘reboot system now’ which you will find in the recovery menu. Once the rebooting is done, you can confirm if the installation is done successfully by going to Settings, then to About phone, notes

The latest marshmallow update to Galaxy S5 brings with it many interesting features. Doze and Now on Tap are a few among others that will change the way you experience using your smartphone, says Android Pit.
