    Hello and welcome to Android Central Matty7500!

    If you, "delete", the partitions of an Android phone you will brick the device as these partitions are necessary for the operation of the phone. See, Android Partitions Explained: boot, system, recovery, data, cache & misc. Partitions are model and firmware specific.

    Messing with any of them, unless you are a very competent and advanced user or developer, can cause big problems and issues. If your phone is slow and laggy it will not be because of the system partitions. My advice... leave them well alone!

    Odin is PC software!

    You will need to download the stock Samsung firmware for your exact model of phone, CSC code and Product code and flash it via the PC software, Odin, by following the instructions and video in the links of #1.11 of 41 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide. DO NOT attempt to alter your .PIT files or Repartition when using Odin.

    Unless you have already played around and messed with the .PIT files or Repartition, then flashing stock firmware will get you up and running.
