How to Install
As with other custom ROMs, people should back up their data before flashing the update. Battery level is also important. Devices should have at least 80-percent charge, as noted by The Inquisitr. It is also important for users to understand the flashing process properly. Users should make sure they have the right Samsung Galaxy S6 model, as wrong compatibility could lead to a bricked phone.
Initially, they will have to connect the device to the computer to copy the software’s zip file. Boot the device to recovery mode, then install zip from sdcard. Make sure the device has a recovery tool. This will come in handy should something goes wrong during the installation process. Reboot the phone. A detailed procedure should be available from the provider of the custom ROM.
