Are the custom ROMs made for the international S5 g900f compatible with the chinese s5 g9006v? The only difference as far as I know is the difference in LTE bands and the lack of google play.

I have not heard of anyone doing it, but, but suppose it wouldn't really hurt to try if you had a nandroid backup ready incase of problems...

I agree that it is different in those regards and those only from all that I've read. There is a thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2738617 that someone made that links to how to custom recovery (in chinese sadly), how to root it, and I personally after rooting/recovery was able to flash gapps 4.4.2 on it and it worked just fine for me. I still want a custom english based ROM that will have gapps fully default installed and all the samsung stuff working, basically a GPE version ROM with all the samsung crap that gives it all the nice features that default android doesn't have.

Now, with all that said, I have seen a TON of people showing different versions compatible with the 900F version and never once seen the 9006V listed as one of those...

Oh me, oh my, the more I (try) to learn, the more confused I become.

The stock ROM from sammobile doesn't include Google apps?

They most certainly do not. I just didn't know if that meant stock sammobile ROM wouldn't have them.

So then, I guess the solution is to flash a stock KitKat ROM on the phone (I assume those do exist)?

Sammobile chinese stock rom doesn't have gapps because it is exactly the same as the rom on the phones. i believe it is pulled from OTA or KIES.
and there are stock kitkat roms available now in the original android development section, but there are bugs and not suited as a daily driver IMO. also not sure if it supports the chinese model

lidroid has made couple of custom roms for g9006v model but they are not in english yet. As i know lidroid first make them in chinese then it is translated to english. And he made a perfect working custom rom for g9006v. I think english rom will be available soon. I also have been looking for a rom. But now i at least tried the root the phone. I am going to wait for a custom rom unfortunately.

Hi,

LIDROID is a good rom custom for the SM-9006V Samsung Galaxy S5. I had trouble to get it, because it's a chinese rom but with multi language and root version. English and other european langage are included. Playstore is inculded also.

It's call Lidroid 4-4-2 v1.2.

At the first time, I used VROOT to instal the root, I tried 3 times, but Vroot pass it. After I have installed a cwrm with odin v3.10 and the rom custom without problem.



It's on a xda forum that I heard about Lidroid rom v1.0 and now a v1.2 exist. But it's very long to donwload it from chinese country, and to find the good buton to click, I give you my file :

Lidroid 4-4-2 v1.2 :

Trying to install CWM with Odin v3.10 but no luck so far. What version of CWM did you install, could you post a link?

Odin says it has passed but cannot get into CWM recovery, keeps going back to factory recovery
