Custom ROMs expand the horizon of Android customization and improve the longevity of older devices.

LineageOS 16 is now available for Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A. At the time of the launch, LineageOS 16 was already available for a slew of Samsung Galaxy S5 variants, making them some of the oldest devices to get official support for the latest version of the custom ROM.


In order to install LineageOS 16 on your Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus or Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A, you must make sure that the bootloader on your smartphone is unlocked and has a custom recovery like TWRP installed. You can download the LineageOS 16 firmware ZIP files using the links below or update directly using the updater app if you’re running LineageOS 15.1. In the latter case, you will not have to wipe the data but we recommend a clean flash to ensure that you don’t have to face any bugs.
