    Try wiping the cache partition in Recovery Mode as per #1.3 of 41 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    Yes you can download the stock Samsung firmware for your phone model, CSC and Product codes and flash it via Odin, to return to stock unrooted. Did you use the latest CF-Auto-Root kernel for your model of phone, here.

    In that case, re-download it again and repeat the Odin flash in case your download was corrupt. If that fails, re-flash the stock firmware to get you up and running again.

    I did redownload a coupel times still not working. So now im downloading from sammobile 2.4gb. almost done. so I just follow the same steps with the sam mobile file right?

    i screwed up my recovery option by selecting nand and erase all on the 10th time I was doing it. So now all I have access to is download mode.

    As you are rooted, you will no longer receive updates OTA or via Kiies/Smart Switch. You will need to manually download and flash any future stock firmware updates. This will un-root you.

    Any chance you can walk me through this, i went an used odin with CF Auto root and i am also stuck in a reboot sequences, boot loop. I tried clearing cache and resting to default via recovery menu but no luck. Currently downloading a slow file to flash back to original.

    [HOWTO] Root your G900W8 stock 5.1.1 firmware

    I am going to try this though i am not sure what to do.

    From what i can see we don't need to use odin, just original samsunsg then use TWRP or CWM to install the two zip files?

    That would be correct. Be sure to select 'wipe' and slide to factory reset. Then install the rom zip followed by the gapps zip. When that's done just reboot.
