Hello
I wonder if it's possible to upgrade my galaxy mega sch-r960 from kitkat to nougat or something like that. Would it be much of a difference?? Thanks for your help.

I can't find any Stock Rom/ Custom Rom for your device but you can install xposed modules to get nougat like features. This works only after rooting your phone.

Hello again.
It's a little hard to find a Custom ROM for your device. When I find, this one is an unofficial Custom ROM and it may have a lot of bugs. I think I posted everything what I've found and it works. If I really could, I'd help you a lot. Sorry.

Thanks just the same. What would be another good one that I can put in other than nougat?? The reason I want to try another is I'm not sure I care for kitkat all that much. Apps from Google play store for instance say they are not compatible with this device.

Maybe you can find something here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-mega/development
Thats the only place I could find a hope for your device. If you don't find there, I think it's hard to do it. The problem is that your device model isn't well-known.

I see xposed on google play and online but the there seems to be more than one kind?? Which one to use. Hmmmm. And as silly as it may sound, why does phone have to be rooted first?? Sure can't wait to be able to figure out these myself but everyone here is so helpful and I really appreciate it.

I believe one of these will work:

https://androidmtk.com/root-samsung-galaxy-mega-6-3-sch-r960

King root and Kingo Root are too bad to get root access.
