WARNING :

This ROM is only for Galaxy S5 Plus LTE-A (SM-G901F/kccat6) version !

You will void your warranty after flashing this ROM (knox @ 0x1)
I'am not responsible of any damage caused to your device after flashing this ROM





Some of you already knows me from my first KitKat ROM for the G901F. Here is the so waited Lollipop version !
I like simple things so the choice of the rom itself was really easy
By simple, I means definitely close to stock, but with some slight optimizations in term of battery and performances.
I precise that I’am not a fan of much tweaking/customizing, so that’s why this rom will never be a real “custom rom” to my eyes.
I decided to make this ROM because it seems that G901F is really missing devs here.
I really would like to thanks Chenglu for porting a CWM recovery, without him this adventure would not exist, as everyone know as everything begin from a recovery..

You will need to flash THIS exact firmware via odin before flashing my rom.
I decided to make my base from latest available 5.0.2 which is the Greece one currently
Some of you maybe already have the 5.0.2 Nordic or other ones, but may face bootloop issue also, so you guys can test and report
Coming from SimpleGX ROM KitKat version will result bootloop (and of course, even if flashing kitkat firmware via odin first, since 5.0.2 and 4.4.4 are both different versions of android)
