Featured ROM: Get Everything-S8 on Your Galaxy S7 and S7 edge with this ROM
If you are someone like me who doesn't believe in changing your phone every year just to "keep up," it could be hard to see everyone enjoying the latest features and trendy looks while you are stuck with your old devices. Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were two of the best products Samsung has ever released. While many believe Galaxy S8 is even better, there is a huge portion of Samsung fanbase that doesn't believe if Galaxy S8 warrants an upgrade from Galaxy S7 or S7 edge. But, what about those S8 software features and looks? Well, why not to get a Galaxy S7 ROM that offers the same features?
Thanks to Tkkg1994, we now have a new Galaxy S7 ROM based "on the latest and greatest software of the S8+" according to the developer. "I was able to make a full port of the S8 (with almost all libs being S8) and I also made a backport of the latest Mali GPU driver (if you install this rom, you will be one of the first to be have a ported Mali GPU!)," the developer claims. In for something new and exciting? Here are all the features, download links and steps to update your Galaxy S7 and S7 edge to this S8-based custom firmware.
