Want to convert your Galaxy S4 into a Galaxy S6? If so, check out the S6 Port ROM by XDA user Albe95.

Based on latest Galaxy S6 SM-G920F Android 5.0.2 Lollipop firmware, S6 Port ROM brings you all the goodness of Lollipop and Galaxy S6 to your S4. You can install this on the international GT-i9505, T-Mobile SGH-M919, Canadian SGH-i337M, and AT&T SGH-i337 with unlocked bootloader.

Inside the S6 Port ROM, you will find a flawless S6 launcher with support for changing your grid size and the new Samsung theme engine (so you can get cool themes like Iron Man). With the latest theme engine, you will be able to download the latest Galaxy S6 themes on Samsung’s Galaxy Apps store and enjoy what S6 users are right there on your Galaxy S4.

As for performance, it’s actually pretty good, I was able to score near 30K on Antutu, which is excellent for the Galaxy S4. Battery life is also fairly good so you should have no problems using it as daily driver.

Of course, you can also get the latest Galaxy S6 camera. As far as regular auto mode, the camera works flawless out of the box for photos and videos. If you try to use any custom modes, you may get some force close errors but you do have the option of installing regular S4 camera in its AROMA installation settings.

Overall, this is an exciting custom ROM that will really allow you to enjoy the best and latest without having to buy a new Galaxy S6 so definitely give it a go and do let me know what you think!

*Note – For AT&T SGH-i337, you CANNOT USE SAFESTRAP, you must have CWM or TWRP recovery installed already!

Make sure you are using CWM v.6.0.4.3 or higher to install Android 5.0+ Lollipop ROMs! Also you can use TWRP v2.6.3.3 or higher.  You can update your CWM recovery using ROM Manager app on Play Store or TWRP Recovery using Goo Manager on Play Store.  If having trouble, you can update manually, see our CWM/TWRP Recovery for Galaxy S4.  For AT&T or Verizon with Loki, see How to Update with TWRP v2.8.4.0!

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot.  (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system.  For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)

What is a Custom ROM?

A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.

With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.

How to Install Custom ROMs

First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.

Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!

    Thanks! Is working great so far on my Canadian S4!! Only issue is that if I try to reboot my phone it gets stuck at the Samsung boot animation and I have to reinstall it all over again. Other than that works great.

    I will try to erase the system as you suggested. Thanks.

  4. Nathan says:

    Is there a way to get this on a S4 currently running 4.4.4?? From what Ive seen on this site you can’t put CWM/TWRP on one running 4.4.4. Would I somehow have to downgrade the OS to get one of those recoveries on there?

  29. presiga says:

    Amigos tengo un S4 M919 T Mobile, me sucedió lo mismo que a muchos, se quedaba iniciando en el logo de Samsung, lo que tienen que hacer es entrar en modo CWM y volver a decirle Wipe Cache Partition con eso se soluciona, reinician y ya inicia sin problemas despues de un momento empieza a ejecutar la actualizacion. Espero les sirva de ayuda mi opinion porque es difícil encontrar soluciones cuando se ha flasheado.
