Install OctOS Android 7.1.1 On Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini


There is a good custom ROM that’s proudly presented recently for Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini LTE I9195 smartphone. The custom ROM is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and the developers behind this ROM, OctOS team, have also added additional features and functionalities to it. If you have been curious to find out how Android 7.1.1 Nougat will run on your device then I suggest you to flash this custom ROM. But let me tell you that this ROM is a weekly ROM therefore you can expect some bugs and don’t worry will be solved later on the next update. This ROM doesn’t include Google Apps therefore you need to install it separately.
