Samsung Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S5

First thing you need to learn about any device is how to restore it when you mess it up. Unless you are a pro at hacking you are going to mess it up and brick at some point. Learn how to us ODIN and restore the device to factory stock rom.

ODIN/Download Mode

  • Make sure your device is completely off
  • Key Combos: Volume Down + Home
  • While holding both of them simultaneously press the Power button until you see a disclaimer on the screen
  • Then let go of all the buttons and press Volume Up to accept the disclaimer
  • Once the green robot is visible on the screen this indicates that handset is in now ODIN/Download mode

Recovery Mode

    • Make sure your device is completely off
    • Key Combos: Volume Up + Home
    • While holding both of them simultaneously press the Power button
    • As soon as the phone vibrates, let go of the Power button but keep holding Volume Up + Home
    • When you see the “Samsung Galaxy S5” logo (not just the word “Samsung”), right after that, the next screen you should see is your recovery
    • Don’t let go of Volume Up + Home until you see your recovery

  3. Hi Dude,
    Thanks for sharing such an amazing post. Recently I bought Galaxy S5, and I rooted it with the help of this guide. Its working fine now, Thanks dude for the great post.
    Will follow all of your posts from now on and will be waiting for the new updates on android rooting.

  4. Hey rootjunky recently unbricked my S5 Neo with your tutorial using Odin Mode and Kies. My phone was locked in custom binary FRP block yikes! Any way the tutorial helped me unlock it but now the I can only make calls and send texts, it keeps saying it is updating app, and keeps updating them over and over again. It closes me out of apps and the internet and like I said I can only use it for texts and calls. Any ideas? We did a factory re-set because it was giving me a security warning and the Samsung store said to do a hard reset and that got us locked out in the FRP to begin with. I assume because I unlocked the phone to give it to my hubby that all these problems arose from that maybe?

    Advice would be appreciated.
