    Hey guys, I'm new to all this flashing roms stuff and I have a question . I have the MetroPCS Galaxy s5 and the model number is G900T1 but there are practically no roms for metropcs so I was wondering if I can flash the tmobile roms on my metropcs device due to the fact metropcs and tmobile are basically the same the Tmobile model number is G900T as you see there's only one difference between the model numbers and that's the 1 in metros model number so please HELP

    They are the same...are there really custom roms already for them, also you should be able to use the international variant roms as well

    So I should be able to flash tmobile and international roms ? I don't want to end up bricking my phone that's why

    Yes..and even if you brick it..you can unbrick it by flashing stock most likely... So why the need for custom roms if you don't mind me asking

    I just don't want all of the pre-installed apps on my device just slowing it down and there's the omega rom that you have the option to remove all of that I'd like my phone to have more speed is all hahaha but thanks a ton for the confirmation

    i am sorry but it looks like you are fairly new with flashing and stuff, are you sure you want to take a chance to brick a 650$ phone? this phone just came out and i can not believe it is slowing down with installed apps. over time you will see a lot of experienced users building recovery, custom roms for your device and you can go more confidently about flashing. you should heed the question DirtyDee had and give it some more time.
    also if you wanted a latest fast phone with least amount of bloat and easier to root, should have gotten a nexus for half the price. just sayin'

    Hey omgitsalize1 :wavey:!

    Just wanted to welcome you to our forums and let you know I've moved your thread over here to the S5 rooting sub-forum for you.

    I'm sure others will chime-in with some answers about your ROM questions.

    You don't need custom rom. Root it and use titanium backup to freeze junk apps. I think there is virtually no way tobrick your phone that way.

    I have everything stock still, and have no complaints. Everything is smooth for me. I even kept My Magazine. I find it useful if you set it to things that you are interested in.

    Heres a question that has probably been answered (and I apologize if it has been) but would using a different carrier's rom possibly "unlock" the device? I have the Sprint model and it cannot be connected due to an early termination. So I wanted to get it to work on T-Mobile but go figure there's no unlocking the Sprint model. I have done my research and it supports both GSM and CDMA. Just curious to see if I can have this thing as an actual phone again and not just some "iPod Touch."

    Honestly it may still have to be carrier unlocked rom switch won't unlock it,but could give you unblock using it in the us which on Sprint tends to be locked.... what device is it?

    Its the Sprint S5 (G900P). I know I own an LG G2 and on a T-Mobile rom that was made using the stock T-Mobile one, the G2 gets unlocked. Now Im sure it might stay completely locked, but if it would just at least work on T-Mobile

    Agree if your new to flashing and bricking your phone is an issue for you, i would say just root it and use titanium backup to freeze the bloatware.

    Use towelroot, your status will stay "official" and have all greatness of rootz.
    The tmobile and metro all things root are kinda mashed together
