Rooting and ROMing the Alpha G850W

    Been a while since I rooted and flashed a ROM. The Galaxy Alpha doesn't have much choice out there for the G850W variant. Last night I flashed the latest TWRP recovery and Cyanogenmod 13 (unofficial).

    So far everything is stable and almost everything works. I tried BT pairing in my 14 Ford Edge and the vehicle saw the phone, but the phone didn't see the vehicle. Kinda strange. Might try again in a few minutes, reboot, etc. If not I might flash CM 12.1 to see if its a Marshmallow thing. ;) BT is important when driving (for me) hands free and all that.

    2 weeks and very stable. So nice having no Google apps (other than Play) and zero Samsung apps installed. Everything else is local, no cloud apps. I can backup my own phone ;-)
