Can you please tell me in what does it differs from the other 906S and 906K models?
You say that this rom here is usable on the L version too, but why before was not usable?
I can't understand the differences.
Thank you.

Hi, welcome!

The difference between S and K isn't significant, just bloatware/proprietary apps by the respective Korean cellular providers. Sammy updates follow very closely one with another for these two models so you won't be at a disadvantage with either of them.

Before you buy the phone consider this:
- compare LTE bands as operated by Three in Italy vs phone specs - not all European lte frequencies are supported
- we are a bit light on custom ROMs and are basically dependent on only two (!) developers. Standard European models have much bigger variety of custom ROMs
- this is a Korean only model so not sure for how long Sammy is going to continue investing efforts into updating the firmware

That said I believe everyone who owns this model is super excited and happy with its performance, power and hardware - definitely one of the best mobiles out there, easily keeping up with the newer S6.

Thank you so much.
The model that I am about to buy is a 906L...and in which does it differ from the two brothers the 906K and 906S?
About the roms, I think I'm gonna use it with stock plus root and Xposed.
Thank you.

I don't have any experience with L so can't comment here. Just bear in mind we're on Lollipop already and XPosed isn't yet supported. Perhaps in the future...

I've read on first page that the Zip package to install on Lollipop stock devices goes Xposed support...isn't it?

On stock, yes, but not lollipop. The first post was created when Kit Kat was around and I don't think it's been updated... Unless I miss something.

Oh..So the Xposed incompatibility with Lollipop is across all Android devices?

About the networks, is there a truly complete thread from where to have all the infos in unlocking all the bands in these 906 devices?
Isee a lot of them but can't understand which is the most true.
Tnx!

For S5, you cannot unlock any LTE bands on top of what's supported by default by any particular model.
Have a look at supported bands specs of a phone of your choice - these are the frequencies you're gonna use, no more than that.

A lot of forums describe a lot of procedures but none of them work on Galaxy S5.

Do feel free to hit 'thanks' if you find the responses useful

Xposed is not yet compatible with stock Lollipop so you'll have to install Cm12 if you need xposed.
