My bad...earlier I thought it did NOT wipe the Internal, but it did. I humbly am eating humble pie for stating the opposite earlier. I did copy everything prior so I am ok. I hope my info didn't cause grief for anyone else. I am basing this on the v1.2 which is the Aroma installer and did choose the full wipe method. I'm assuming that v1.0 and 1.1 did the same prior to the aroma installer.

If I'm violating XDA policy here, my bad. Just wanted to let others no that as with the S4, many of the International ROMs worked. Your mileage may vary and I am NOT responsible if something happens to your device. I am using the twrp version reference here in the rooting method for our TMobile S5's.

Currently finishing the installation process. I am not making any recommendations as to what ROMs are best etc. Just wanted to let others know that this worked for me.
Thanks a ton for this, man. I'd give you a thanks, but I'm out for the day. I'll definitely give it to you when I log back in though. I flashed the ROM and can also confirm it works great. I used TWRP. My main goal was to get my hotspot working; goal accomplished!!

Can someone just confirm for me again that this is working on the T-mobile Galaxy S5? The reason why I am paranoid is that back when I was a noob several years ago, I accidentally flashed an international rom for my S3 and it hard bricked it do to different partition layouts. I just want to be sure before I flash.

On the other hand though, it would be incredible if know all the international roms will work with T-mobile. It will totally break down the wall on what we can install on our device and open up a world of mods, hacks etc. There are a lot more developers that work on the international version then on the us variants.
