How To Upgrade The Samsung Galaxy S5 & Galaxy Note 3 To Android Naugat 7.1.1

Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note 3 used to be Samsung’s flagships not long ago. However, these devices are yet to receive any official confirmation from Samsung as regards when are they going to taste Android Nougat. Samsung seems to have completely forgotten these ageing smartphones and is all focused on its latest phones when it comes to upgrading them to the latest Android OS. However, as a ray of hope for S5 and Note 3 users, AOKP team has released new Android 7.1.1 custom firmware for both the smartphones.

According to them, the new custom firmware offers a “pure AOKP Android experience which is fast, smooth and stable.” The AOKP team has released different firmware for the two smartphones and to a large surprise, not all models of Galaxy S5 are eligible to upgrade to Android N.

Samsung Galaxy S5 which supports LTE and bear G900F as their model number are eligible for this unofficial firmware update from AOKP. S5 users can check if their model is eligible for this upgrade by following the following steps:

  1. Open Settings from the menu or the notification panel.
  2. Go to the General
  3. Now navigate and tap About Device. Check from all the listed information whether your device’s Model Number is G900F.

If it has the same model number then your device can be upgraded to Android 7.1.1.

Same goes for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphones, if it bears N9005 model number then it is eligible for the unofficial firmware update. To check your device’s eligibility:

  1. Open Settings from the menu or the notification panel.
  2. Go to the General
  3. Now navigate and tap About Device. Check from all the listed information whether your device’s Model Number is N9005.

AOKP has described this firmware (CM14.1 custom ROM) as a development in progress and so it should be noted that installing the firmware can cause your device to behave funny i.e., it may disturb the general processes. In general, installation of any sort of unofficial firmware update warrants extra precautions because any wrong move can disrupt the device permanently. Notably, no Smartphone company covers such kind of damages as caused due to the installation of uncredited firmware. So it is advised that users should proceed only at their own risk after assessing every possible consequence.

Installation of a custom ROM requires users to check and complete some prior requirements viz., Charge your smartphone to at least 80% of its capacity and create a backup of important stuff, app data and system settings on a custom recovery tool. Now after the requirements are complete, installation of the custom Mod requires rooting of the device.

Now after the rooting is complete you can download and install the CM14.1 custom ROM on your rooted Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
