    Default Galaxy S5 set warranty bit: kernel

    Hi all. I'm new at this and looking for some help. My rooted S5 is stuck on the startup screen with set warranty bit: kernel in yellow at the top left. I've tried flashing the stock firmware in Odin, but then I get a recovery error and have to flash a recovery. I've been using philz and as soon as I flash that it goes right back to the startup with the kernel message. I've been unable to use my phone for 2 days. I've tried to flash a few kernels in Odin but they either give me a md5 binary error or freeze Odin altogether. Please help!! Any suggestions are welcome!

    The message means you tripped Knox, which of course you did by rooting. You are probably best off going over to the xda developer forum and see if you can find a fix over there.

    That kernel bit will always be there, it is there on mine to, everything works.

    Go to xda and look for your phones stock image and flash it with oding
