I was googling for some news on custom ROMs for our S5 Mini when I stumbled upon some sites that seem to be deploying a fake ROM.

If you google for "upgrade update galaxy s5 mini to 5.0 lollipop" you'll find some entries claiming that "I rewrite this tutorial from". Download links are provided, but the whole thing seems to be BS, just because:

- there is no reference to the "tutorial" cited, in the first place;

- whichever link I clicked at the menu ("home", "about us", etc) lead me to the very same page I landed at first;

- I changed the browser link from ".../samsung-galaxy-s5-mini-duos-6563.html" to "../samsung-galaxy-s6-mini-duos-6563.html" and I was taken to a page telling me how to... upgrade my "S6 Mini";

- as you may have guessed, changing the link to "...S19-mini-duos..." will also give a positive result, and the same goes with the Galaxy-XPTO97-mini-duos, of course.

So beware: downloading and installing those alleged "ROM upgrade files" could be a very dangerous project, to say the least. Take care.
