LineageOS ROM for Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge! [Android 7.1.1][Nougat]

For those of you who have waited long time for an AOSP(What is AOSP?) ROM, I have some good news for you, a fully-working AOSP ROM is now available for the Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge!

Based on latest Android 7.1.1 sources, LineageOS ROM brings you the best and latest Google pure OS for those of you who rather enjoy Google’s UI than Samsung’s 3rd-party makeover.  Of course, this isn’t for everyone but for those of you who want to dump Samsung and convert your phone into a Pixel/Nexus device.  The ROM itself runs pretty decent with pretty much everything working out of the box including 4G LTE data, voice, bluetooth, GPS, etc…etc…  Now, with that said you may still encounter bugs as this is still a ROM in development.  But the good news is that we see a long term development of AOSP ROMs for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which simply means more custom ROMs for you.

How to Root Galaxy S6/S6 Edge on Android 5.1.1!

For those of you who want to root your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, you will want to follow a different root method as Google has changed how rooting works with newer Android 5.1.1.  Due to Android 5.1.1 changes, you can no longer root your S6 or S6 Edge without causing it to soft-brick.  But there’s a work-around, this goes back to the days of older Android ICS and Gingerbread where we flash a modified kernel to make root possible.  It’s unfortunate that the newer Android 5.1.1 makes rooting more complex but it is still doable with a custom kernel.

How to Turn Galaxy S6 into S6 Edge! [VN ROM]

Want to turn your Galaxy S6 into an S6 Edge?  There’s a ROM for that called VN ROM.

Based on latest Android 5.0.2 SM-G925F firmware, VN ROM brings you S6 Edge features like Edge Lighting and People Edge to your Galaxy S6.

The best part?  You can install this ROM on any Galaxy S6 model except AT&T and Verizon (as they have locked bootloaders).  I was able to install it just fine on my T-Mobile Galaxy S6 SM-G920T (but you will lose WiFi calling since this is an international ROM although you will have all language support).
