    I'm sure someone on here has at least heard of Sailfish and has maybe even used it. What are the pros and cons v., for instance, lollipop or marshmallow? How would I get and install it? How much room would it take? Does it require rooting?

    Apparently you can have Sailfish OS on a Sony Xperia phone, but that's about it.

    It's a mobile Linux OS, originally developed by Nokia as Meego.

    It won't work with the S5? That'd be just my luck. I wanted to try a different os, but I guess I'm stuck, at least for now.
