Galaxy S8 ROM on Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge! [Conversion]

For those of you who want to get all of Galaxy S8/S8 Plus features on your Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, we have a Galaxy S8 ROM that you can install called “KhongLoi” ROM.

The KhongLoi ROM is a full Galaxy S8 port, meaning the actual firmware has been “ported” to work on the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge.  Now, this ROM will give you pretty much all the software features of Galaxy S8 including Galaxy S8 live Infinity wallpapers, full-working AOD(Always-On Display), navigation soft keys, S8 weather widgets, S8 icons, S8 apps, S8 camera, and much more.  There are few things not working such as home button in AOD and few modes in S8 camera but otherwise the ROM works flawless out of the box and will let you enjoy S8 features without upgrading your phone.

The Galaxy S8 ROM is designed for international model SM-G930F S7 or SM-G935F S7 Edge but it should work on most international models.  U.S. models are NOT SUPPORTED because they have locked bootloaders and a custom ROM requires TWRP recovery to install.

Installation is straight forward, just install the ROM and kernel with TWRP recovery.  Also, Magisk root works flawless and you will be able to pass SafetyNet and hide root from apps like Android Pay, Pokemon Go, and Snapchat.

After installation, make sure to read up on Galaxy S8 – Stuff You Must Do!

Before trying to install, make sure you have TWRP recovery installed.  If you don’t have it installed, follow Steps 1 through 13 in our root guide here then follow the rest of instructions on this page.
