    Hi and thanks for posting the detailed instructions which were very helpful. They helped me and my son install 14.1 onto his S5. One small issue is that the screen sensitivity has gone super sensitive. When you hold your finger close to the screen the menu option underneath highlight. I’ve checked the setting to increase sensitivity for use with gloves and it’s not on.

    I’m wondering if anybody else experiences this?
