    Aloha,

    Nice job! But have a question… would this work on a S5 Active? S5 sport and S5 active are pretty much similar also the physical button mapping are the same. I installed 15.1 super for S5 but my buttons dont work except my home button. So i’m hoping this one works for Active?

    Thanks a lot for your reply!
