Lightbulb Success: G900F rom on G900V S5

Hi!

First I want to thank the developers and Goldie and Hashcode. I could not thank us topics because I am newbie here.

My wife bought a Galaxy S5 of a person who did not disclose that it was the 900V version, and only possessed a few languages.

Tried my best to translate or to enable more languages​​, all without success.

I managed to do the following to resolve the problem, and it can serve other people from other languages ​​that are at hand with this device, since the installed rom (AllianceRom) has support for multiple languages​​. The phone now appears like a 900F.

1) I root with https://towelroot.com/ towelroot

2) I copied this file from AllianceRom to the microSD card. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2716535

3) I installed the following safestrap this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2793891

4) I enabled a custom rom 1 using the default options.

5) I installed the rom usually at recovery.

6) I waited a few minutes, booted, and FINALLY got to choose the option Brazilian Portuguese.

caveats:

Do not know if it's bug or something the ROM installing a rom that is not the phone itself, but the device does not turn off. He gets the LED on the physical and lighted keys and switches itself off. I have to take off and put the battery back.

If I had to fix something, which will not do out of sheer laziness, would change the standard sizes of custom rom, because I never want to see the original rom from Verizon. The custom rom ended up with little virtual space.

Sorry for the english but blame Google Translator! :P

Umm no I'm on the 900V?
I just read in step#4 that he put it on a rom slot I've read that people are having problems when they use a rom slot instead of the stock slot and thought that might help no clue? I was just suggesting that by installing it on the stock slot might fix the following problems.

4) I enabled a custom rom 1 using the default options.

I believe it's on page 13 of the alliance thread where they start talking about the rom slot issue.

Alright so I thought I would shed a little light on this. I saw this thread a few days ago and decided to test this for myself. I have a verizon version of the S5 and the 900f version of the rom installed fine in the stock rom slot. The only issue at first was the keyboard was chinese. I had to activate the English one and things were fine. All the customization stuff works. I've basically tested everything and have been using it constantly for a few days now. So it does work. I haven't tried any other 900f roms yet.

Yes!

My wife exchanged the Verizon Galaxy S5 black by a white version. This time I installed the rom slot: stock, and everything is working perfectly.
