Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini

Android 5.0.2 Lollipop version has been released by SlimROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini users. You can follow the below steps to receive the update on your device.

However, the custom ROM should be installed only for the experimental purpose as the official update hasn’t released yet. The ‘Alpha testing’ stage is on progress and hence it would take time for the official version to hit the technological arena; hopefully it’ll happen by the mid of next month. If you’re not an advanced user, then it’ll be better to wait for the official update to launch.


  • The following steps are applicable for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini only.
  • While you’re doing the installation process, be sure that the device has at least 60% battery backup.
  • Your device should have proper custom recovery tool like CWM or TWRP before the installation process.
  • Install all the required USB drivers on your PC and USB Debugging Mode on your Smartphone.
