SafeStrap recovery is available for AT&T Galaxy S5 and developers are creating ROMs especially to work with this Recovery. One XDA thread is found to be the only ROM for this specific device and as mentioned before, sometimes carrier bounded variants get a lot more than what an international variant can not get. While on the other hand, international variant can receive a lot of support which is quite necessary now-a-days, because of the users messing with their devices. SafeStrap recovery is for devices with locked Bootloaders, it doesn’t mess with the System instead it creates a whole new system within the primary system, however you can erase the current primary system and flash a new one in it.
Now let’s talk a little about ViSiX ROM, it is completely based on the Android 4.4.2, Stock looks, Fast and Smooth, not to mention Clean and Stable, with insane battery life, Pre-rooted and BusyBox already installed, although you need BusyBox and Root access to install this ROM, as SafeStrap requires both of these things. LTE support is there, so you don’t have to worry about connectivity. Rest is up-to you to explore.
The methods involved in flashing custom ROMs and rooting your phone is highly custom and may result in bricking your device,and has nothing to do with Google or the device manufacturers which is Samsung in our case. In case of any mishap we may not be held responsible. Follow these instructions to the letter to avoid any mishap or bricking.
