1. IN­STALL A CUS­TOM ROM

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

It’s time to ditch that stock Sam­sung ROM. You’ll want to down­load XtreS­toLite Deo-Mod Edi­tion 2.4 and its Aroma Add-On Pack­age from the Galaxy S6 XDA fo­rums. This is es­sen­tially based on Sam­sung’s stock files (which means it should be very sta­ble), but with all the cus­tom soft­ware stripped out.

Put both .zip files on your phone and then boot into re­cov­ery mode (Power + Home + Vol­ume Up but­tons). Next, hit 'Wipe' in the tiled menu and work the slider to fac­tory re­set your phone. Af­ter that, tap 'Ad­vanced Wipe' and check the Dalvik Cache, Cache, and Sys­tem op­tions, and swipe to wipe those com­po­nents.

Now you’re all set to flash the ROM. Re­turn to the main menu and hit 'In­stall'. Nav­i­gate to the folder where you placed the ROM, se­lect the right file, and then swipe to flash.

This time, pay closer at­ten­tion to the in­stal­la­tion menu. You’ll be prompted to se­lect one of two cus­tom ker­nels. Se­lect 'Vindi­ca­tor', and con­tinue on with the in­stal­la­tion. When that’s fin­ished, you can re­boot the de­vice.
