Galaxy S8 Conversion for Galaxy Note 5 or S6 Edge Plus!

For those of you with a Galaxy Note 5 or S6 Edge+, you can now get a lot of S8 parts to convert it into a Samsung Galaxy S8.  Of course, this is only our initial conversion and in the future we will be adding more stuff like S8 camera and other S8 features but for right now, it runs flawless and fast.

UPDATE: Now there is a FULLY PORTED S8 ROM, that will give you way more S8 features!

First, you will need to run an S7 Edge ported ROM on latest Android 7.0 Nougat.  For this, we recommend the Khongloi Nougat ROM, which runs flawless on many variants of Note 5 and S6 Edge including the T-Mobile SM-N920T, Canadian SM-N920W8, international SM-N920C/SM-N920I/SM-N920G, Korean SM-N920S/SM-N920K/SM-N920L, dual-sim SM-N9208, T-Mobile SM-N928T, Canadian SM-N928W8, international SM-N928F, and Korean SM-G928K, SM-G928L, and SM-G928S.

(Above is the list of supported models by the Khongloi Nougat ROM.)

The Khongloi ROM also supports SuperSU or Magisk root option.  My recommendation is to go with Magisk, which allows you to disable root for doing things like playing Pokemon Go or use Android Pay.  After installing the ROM, make sure you install SuperUser app from the Play Store otherwise you won’t have root.


Download Khongloi ROM for Note 5 or S6 Edge+ (for all models mentioned above in the article)

Download T-Mobile/Canadian Voice/LTE fix (for T-Mobile or Canadian Note 5/S6 Edge+, flash after ROM)

First, boot into TWRP, make a backup ROM (if you want to restore ROM if something goes wrong), then wipe system, wipe, install ROM, and reboot.  That’s it!    Don’t know how to do this?  See our fail-proof TWRP installation guide first.

If you do not have TWRP recovery, simply download latest TWRP recovery for Note 5 or S6 Edge+ and install with ODIN.

To get the Galaxy S8 parts after installing ROM, you can follow these tutorials after installing the ROM:

That’s pretty much it!  So long as you have a Note 5 or S6 Edge+ model that is supported, you will be able to easily turn your Galaxy Note 5/S6 Edge+ into Galaxy S8.
