    Default Galaxy s5 usb malfunction

    hi all,

    Having since I updated my S5 with some carrier update the usb has started not to work, The only thing that works is charging I cant even flash the firmware as it wont even connect. I have tryed installing the driver manually and tryed using kies to get it working still no result.

    I have tryed multiple cables and 3 pc's. Does anyone have a suggestion?

    Could it possibly have happened after the recent slew of Windows Updates which included an erroneous update? See my post here: Nexus 5 connecting via USB as wrong device

    I formated my laptop and never installed any updates still the same.

    Could I flash the stock rom using the SD card method?

    If you are rooted, and are willing to pay $5 for the Mobile Odin app, yes. You can't flash it through a custom recovery.

    No, and I'm guessing it's not easy unless it's done via USB right?

    Yeah, for most methods you need to plugged into a computer. I'm not aware of any currently working ones which don't require it.

    Hmm. Yeah, as long as the device hasn't been damaged that should be covered under warranty
