Hey
i just joined xda..i'm a noob so please don't hate.
I was wondering if i could install the all new s5 software on my s3.
I currently have cm 11 installed (the latest one), and my friend installed s5 software on his note 2 and it was just great!!
Any link to a site or any response will be appreciated.
Tnx.
Pierre

You can't install a software from another device/model on yours. It'll brick it. I think your friend is lying as well? My apologies if its legitimate but I just checked and found no software for s5 working on the note 2

If you find an individual APK to install, you might not brick your phone. I've been trying to find the S5 camera app for my S2. It didn't work, but it didn't brick it.

Apparently Kitkat OTAs for the Galaxy S3 include the S5 theme

You just need to edit your device name in the build.prop file
