Welcome to S5 Enabler (by Hearten S. [dEAdHeart])introduction page!
* 1. What is S5 Enabler? *
Enabler for Galaxy S5 is a simple file which can make your device (Korean models only) bootable with most of Touchwiz custom ROMs which are compatible with Samsung kernel. You can do these processes by flashing a boot file via Odin and copying some files to your device, but this Enabler was made for some people who can’t use their PCs or who have some problems with running Odin.
* 2. Caution! *
If you don’t know what is Philz (or CWM, TWRP), Knox Warranty Void, rooting, and custom ROMs, click or tap ‘Go Back’. Installing a custom recovery to install this file will make your Knox Warranty Void from 0x0 to 0x1 and get some limitations with A/S, also you can't use my KNOX any more. At your own risk!
Even if your device bricks (not booting), or your device doesn't work well, I am not responsible for it. Even though, the files were tested by my device, but your device can get bricked. Therefore, I prefer you to use this only when you do a nandroid backup before flashing ROMs or you're able to debrick your phone.
* 3. How to install *
- Download ROMs, MODs (only when you have), and Enabler.
- Enter (custom) recovery mode. If you have 4 way reboot mod in your previous ROM, you can tap Reboot - Reboot to recovery. Otherwise, you can turn off your device and press Volume Up + Home + Power for 3 seconds to enter.
- Do a factory reset. (This isn't essential.)
- Install a custom ROM. (You can install some other mods such as WALKMAN, Patch, etc.)
- Install Enabler.
- Reboot your phone.
* 4. Simple Q&A *
Q : What things don’t work?
A : T-DMB, and Mobile T-money (Mobile Cashbee) using NFC won’t work.
Q : I think there was support for LG U+ devices... but I can't find it. Where is it?
A : There was Enabler for LG U+ until 1.21, but since it has plenty of bugs such as Wi-Fi, BT, and Mobile Network don't work at all. Fixing these things aren't possible to me. Therefore, I decided to stop supporting LG U+ devices.
Q : I'm using SM-G900K (Galaxy S5 KT). I want to flash KitKat custom ROMs, but why there is only Lollipop version?
A : Since I am not using SM-G900K but SM-G900S, I can't export some files. When someone sends me files that I need, I'll be able to support it.
