Default [Q] Are there any roms released for the gs5 att?

Is there any roms released for the Galaxy s5 att? I just installed the safestrap recovery. I was hoping to flash cyanogenmod to my phone if they have a compatible rom released for my phone. And i was also wandering if i could install a rom made for the verizon phone or lets say the international version to my phone? Or does the rom have to be made specifically for the att galaxy s5? Thank you.

Ok thanks, I have a few questions though. I installed safestrap, but isn't the bootloader still locked? Or did installing safestrap unlock it? And if so, can I flash a ROM directly from safestrap? Or do I have to use a computer? I thought my device is s-on since I never changed that lol. This is my first Samsung device, sorry for all of the questions.

Yes Your Bootloader is locked
No SafeStrap did not unlock it
Yes You can flash a ROM from SafeStrap (similar to flashing any other rom)
(make sure you choose install recovery from the app first)
just reboot to recovery (through the safestrap application backup your existing rom
and flash your shinny new custom rom.

Devices:
HTC One X+ Retired
Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900A Root KoolKit ROM
Samsung Galaxy Tab3 7" JB4.2.2 SM-T217A Rooted S5 Tweaked

Can you do a nandroid backup of everything on your phone with safestrap?

And we can install safestrap on AT&T no problem right?

Safestrap is just a way to get a custom recovery installed. Safestrap adds a menu to the boot up process that allows you to boot into twrp recovery. You can do anything you want there, except flash kernels.

And s-on is an HTC thing, nothing to do with Samsung.
