    I have tried a lot. My understanding is that if I downgrade to 4.4.2, I can root my S5 easily. The phone refuses to take any software given by Odin (3.10.7). I have turned reactivation lock off, cleared the cache, factor reset the phone, and turned USB debugging on. Ideally, I would load 4.4.2 (I am using G900VVRU1ANE9_G900VVZW1ANE9_G900VVRU1ANE9_HOME.tar.md5 from sam mobile), but would be fine with any method to root. Yes I am in download mode while trying to put the new OS on. The log on Odin is:
    <ID:0/006> Added!!
    <OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
    <OSM> Binary Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    <OSM> Please wait..

    <ID:0/006> FAIL! (Auth)
    <ID:0/006> Complete(Write) operation failed.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

    On the phone, the error is:
    SW REV CHECK FAIL : [aboot]Fused 2 > Binary 1

    Any suggestions??
