    Hi guys,

    I'm a young and stupid 14 year old who decided to install a custom recovery and flash a custom ROM. However, when I flash a stock firmware on my phone via Odin, in a Salmon color at the top, it reads, "FAIL!". I downloaded a firmware from Sammobile.

    Hello and welcome to Android Central Androidlicous!

    Have you ever been on the latest Lollipop firmwares for your AT&T phone, G900A, prior to your flashing attempt or have you always been on Android 4.4.2, KitKat?

    So, were you already rooted, as normally, AT&T push updates out and there is no escaping unless you are rooted.

    Have you got a link to the ROM that you are on and to the custom recovery you are attempting to flash.

    I'm currently on Safestrap custom recovery, flashing wasn't necessary for this specific custom recovery.

    ROM ; DeOdexed/Extreme Debloat/Android L features, I can't post links as of right now. The ROM was by elliwigy.

    Follow this guide to safely unroot and flash a stock AT&T firmware, Android 4.4.2,NCE...

    Unroot and restore AT&T Galaxy S5 back to stock firmware with Odin

    This should get you back to unrooted stock AT&T firmware. I checked your existing custom ROM details... [NCE}{SafeStrap]DeOdexed/Extreme Debloat/Stock/Android L Features and there is no mention that it alters the .PIT files, so the stock firmware flash should work.

    Congratulations Androidlicous!

    Unless you re-root your stock firmware, good old AT&T will push their latest stock Lollipop firmware, with the mega locked down AT&T bootloader, to you.

    As for obtaining the NG3 firmware, that's a Google search job I am afraid as the AT&T clone firmware is not released by Samsung and AT&T do not share their firmware through the usual sources like Verizon do.
