Havoc-OS 2.0 for Galaxy S5 (Android 9.0 Pie)


Havoc-OS 2.0 project is based on the AOSP code while adding a ton of useful tweaks to it.
This Custom ROM is inspired by Google Pixel and has a refined Material Design 2 UI.
While many of you might not have heard of its name, considering it’s a rather new project having surfaced about a year ago. Despite being a relatively new project, the ROM has quickly evolved into becoming a very stable and reliable custom ROM.
Since it is a growing project, it doesn’t have a long list of supported devices yet, but is soon expected to grow to support all the major devices. The latest supported version is Android 9 Pie.

Now you can install Havoc-OS on Galaxy S5 by following our guide below. You will need a custom recovery like ClockworkMod or TWRP in order to flash the ROM on your phone. If your phone is running TWRP, then you can simply download and flash the ROM on Galaxy S5. Please make sure you backup all your data because this tutorial will wipe all your data.

First let’s have a look at some of the pre-requisites before we take you to the step by step instruction.

  • Your device need to have TWRP or CWM custom recovery installed.
  • Backup any important data before going forward for the tutorial.
  • Make sure that your phone has at least 50-60% battery.
  • Download ROM and Gapps form links below.

Warning: Rooting or flashing Custom ROMs will void your warranty and can brick your device if done wrong. We are not responsible for anything that may happen to your phone. Proceed at your own risk.
