The Galaxy S7 is the latest flagship from the Samsung and naturally, every Galaxy owner will search for a way to get the look and feel of S7 on their devices. Many developers have already started their work to port the Galaxy S7 features to other Galaxy devices and we have already shared the ported Galaxy S7 apps which can be installed on the Galaxy S6 and Note 5. If you have missed our article, find it at the below link.
Putting aside the ported apps, we have a good news for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users. bulldog74ts from XDA has ported the official Galaxy S7 Edge ROM to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge which brings most of the Galaxy S7 features to your S6. The developer is claiming the ROM to be smooth and stable without any major bugs. The aptly named ‘Noble ROM’ is based on the new G935FXXU1APB6 firmware and brings the stock ODEX framework of S7 to the Galaxy S6.
The ROM is compatible with the model numbers SM-G920F or SM-G925F, so don’t try it on other variants or devices, else you would end up with a bricked device. So, without any further ado, let’s see how to install this beautiful ROM on your Galaxy S6. To install the ROM, you need to have the TWRP recovery installed on your Galaxy S6. If you don’t have one, you can install it from the below link.

- Once the flashing process is complete, reboot the device from the main menu.
The initial boot might take some time, so don’t panic if you see the boot logo for more than 10 minutes. Just sit back and relax while the S7 ROM is booting on your Galaxy S6.
