    I was able to reinstall the firmware using Odin. Not sure why it worked for that, but it did. Guess we'll save the rooting for another time. Thanks for the help.
    Glad you are back up and running again!

    I'm stuck in the "stuck in Samsung logo" state.

    Wiping cache, starting with PB1 or OK3, the end is the same. The wheels fall off, apparently, when NK2 goes in. At the point where the expected "stuck" happens and SM-G900V doesn't show up in Windows Explorer, I pop the battery, go back to recovery (OEM, not TWRP, etc.) and clear the cache. After that, I reboot, plug in the cable. The only sign of life from the S5 is I see the "CD Drive" device show up. And the area around the CPU heats up. In the past, (prior to attempting to root) CD Drive shows up, goes away, and is replaced with SM-G900V. Now, after flashing NK2, all I see is CD Drive, no matter how long I wait.

    What's up with that???

    What's up is the freakin' how-to leaves out the little details that show how well things are going even though it may look as though the ****e has hit the fan. Ironass, you did a video of the process (shown earlier) that I wish I'd found three days ago. I want to pass that video on to some other folks, but darned if I can find it now. Of course.

    I think this is your work. Maybe not. Either way, it cleared up a potential nightmare.
