The other day, we posted on how to make your own Galaxy S7 Edge Batman Injustice Edition without actually buying the phone.  Well, we wanted to push this to the limits and decided to make an Avengers Edition phone.

For those of you who want to convert your Galaxy S4, S5, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, S7, S7 Edge, or Note 3/4/5 into a full-fledge Avengers Edition phone, you can do so by rooting, installing a custom ROM, Avengers theme, and installing boot animation.  This will totally change how your phone looks and runs.  If you haven’t seen the video yet, take a quick look at the Galaxy S7 Edge Iron Man Edition that was an outcome of this process.

First of all, you will want to be running a ported Galaxy S7 Edge ROM on your Galaxy smartphone, here’s our recommendation:

If you are running Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Note 5, S7, or S7 Edge, you DO NOT need a ported ROM, that is ONLY if you want additional S7 Edge screen panel features.  You only need Samsung theme feature which comes default on those newer Galaxy phones.

Also, you will need a ROOTED phone, all custom ROMs come with root or you can root your device if not using custom ROM.

Step 1. Go to APKQuick.com and download Avengers theme APK of your choice:

    Is there any backups needed before we try this install? I’ve noticed you advise to delete some objects and want to make sure we are able to revert back with ease.

    I don’t see the S3 there eh!?!

    Does that mean a no go for the IronMan theme on the S3?
