In conclusion, that is all you need to get the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software updates up and running on the Samsung Galaxy E5 smartphone by making use of a custom ROM. A custom ROM differs from the stock ROM in the sense that the official Android developers do not develop it. The CyanogenMod custom ROM is what many people consider the best custom ROM to install, and they make a peculiar habit of keeping things as close to stock Android as possible. They also consistently have features that outperform what the real Android developers give to you when you buy a device. About the only thing, you will need to consider the fact that you will void the warranty by installing a custom ROM, so if the warranty is important to you, then you might not want to install a custom ROM.
