The LG G6 was once a popular Android smartphone and launched with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. However, gradually the popularity of the device declined with the advent of other flagship killers like the Samsung Galaxy S8, HTC U Ultra, OnePlus 3T, which come in the same price range with an added advantage of higher specifications. The LG G5, however, is still popular because it introduced a modular design to the world. Not much official development is going on for the LG G5 currently, but the developers are unstoppable. A recognized custom ROM developer for LG, xpirt, has come up with a new version of Fulmics ROM 3.1 for the LG G5. It supports all LG G5 variants including the US models as well; ready to download and install via TWRP recovery.
The latest version of Fulmics 3.1 ROM is based on the LG G6 firmware. Moreover, the firmware is based on Android 7.0 Nougat (NRD90U) with v20D baseband and a newer April 2017 security patch level. The major attraction of the custom ROM is that it incorporates LG G6 UX. That means all the LG G6 apps, features, user interface, etc. can now be experienced on LG G5. It has the Magisk & MagiskSU framework that provide root access, Google Assistant built-in, and much more. The full changelog is listed below.
