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

  1. I installed Alliance Rom yesterday on my Samsung Galaxy S5 900v. I have safestrap,titanium backup,trickster mod and for some reason it started to soft boot. Have you heard anything about this, and is there a way to fix it? Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

    Thank you,

  2. i tried wiping dalvik and cache to see if that made a difference, but it didn’t. someone suggested uninstalling trickster mod and i did that as well. it doesn’t happen all the time, just every so often. i would say maybe once or twice a day. i really love the Rom though. There is so much you can do with it.

  3. i am also experiencing a loss of sending mms. i try to add the picture and it won’t add at all. just goes back to home screen like i was never in the messenger, btw i am using the stock messenger

  4. So I was foolish and did the NI2 OTA update on my s5 before i had root access and custom recovery. Is there any way I can get root and custom recovery now that I’m already on NI2 so that I can flash custom roms?

  5. So… I know this has been asked other places, but I haven’t seen anything to recent. But is there no solution to downgrade from BoG5 still?

  8. Recently broke my fibula and decided to take up phone repair as a part time hobby while I’m healing. I acquired 2 abused S5s (AT&T & Verizon) on ebay. The Verizon S5 LCD was shattered and it body frame was warped (looked like someone ran over it with their car). The AT&T S5 had a shattered LCD display (easy fix or so I thought).

    I wound up replacing every almost part of the Verizon S5 (except logic board & front camera). However upon testing, the Verizon S5 will not charge (even though I replaced the USB flex charge port & midframe). All other functions are good. Any idea on what to do about the charge problem?

    The AT&T S5 repair was just a simple LCD display replacement. Everything check out fine. Then one day the external speakers stopped working (after update from Kitkat). The audio jack and phone ear & mic appeared to be working. But the alarms, ringtone, speaker are silent. I have tried factory resets, safe mode, cleared cache in recovery, pulling sim, replacing the midframe (which included the speaker)… all to no avail. Have not been able to find any useful advice to resolving this issue (or a decent explanation). The other android forums were no help. Unless you consider “must be either a software or hardware issue” helpful.

    If you have to ask what a midframe or usb flex charge port are then you are not qualify to provide proper diagnosis for my equipment issues. Please is there somebody out there that can provide useful feedback?


  9. I bought a Samsung Galaxy off Classifieds and it said it needs an email from a previous owner I don’t have that please help

  10. I have s5 but cant open recovery mode … when i attempt this method only appear ” samsung galaxy s5 ….. powered by android ” nothing much… i face this problem since last 1 year plz help me

  11. 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.
