    This is for rooted users and is based on the unbranded U.K. release for the G935F model. Currently it is compatible with all Global G935F models as well as the G935FD, Duos, model, (on a single sim basis). Untested, as yet, on the Canadian, G935W8, model but should work. See the developers thread for more up-to-date information.

    This is for experienced and competent users. Please read the developement thread, carefully and thoroughly before proceeding.

    WARNING: DO NOT attempt to flash this on the S7 model or Qualcomm SnapDragon models.
