    It was just repeating, and I needed to move my laptop to another room for a bit, or I would have left it cabled.

    I now have the CyanogenMod and Recovery.

    The firmware download also completed.

    I still have your root and TWRP.

    I will re-flash the firmware (as you mentioned in one of your last posts). I'll let you know the results.

    I can't flash the firmware.

    Odin isn't recognizing my phone as a device plugged into my laptop.

    In fact, I don't think my laptop is detecting the phone as a device plugged into the laptop.

    I turned off my phone, went out and bought a temp replacement (that didn't work...) and just decided to plug my handset in and charge it, in case you came back. Odin saw the damn thing.

    I rebooted into download mode, and I'm now pushing the firmware from TMO that you had me download from sammobile.

    ... and everything is there. I didn't even have to use the backup I made with Wondershare MobileTrans (one of the solutions linked to in the "backup now!" thread you posted earlier).

    My blood pressure just dropped about 30 points. And I am so happy I don't have a brick.

    But it still doesn't address why I can't flash or sideload or anything... So, at least we can get back to that.

    Hi scrubofthegalaxy!

    Just been reading through your last 5 posts, with their highs and lows. You have now tried numerous different methods of rooting and custom recoveries. I have checked everything... including whether you may have had a fake or clone phone... and still, nothing!

    I have checked that there have been no further updates or patches from T-Mobile (USA) that could have locked their bootloader down and prevented rooting, as they have done on the Galaxy S7 & Edge.

    I have come across this thread on the xda developers forum... New Firmware G900TUVS1FOL1. They seem to recommend the TWRP + SuperSU method but even this has met with mixed results.

    It looked as though you had cracked the problem in post #27 and had root and TWRP custom Recovery, (I do not understand the CyanogenMod reference!). However, you are now back up and running on the stock T-Mobile (USA) firmware, which has, of course, unrooted you.

    The Cyanogen reference was just to me downloading another tool.

    I wanted to let you know I was working in anticipation of something failing and getting a "Let's try this other thing" response. I figured if I couldn't get my old image and firmware back on, I could at least make sure I had the most popular image and recovery on-hand, in case you wanted me to attempt something with it.

    I'll go check out that other thread, and review all the notes there, and perhaps take another stab at it.

    I now have TWRP.

    No idea how or why it worked. But I now have TWRP.

    Time to plug this thing into a hard drive, back it up, wipe it, and then get a new ROM on it.

    I'm thinking Cyanogen, since it is the biggest name out there.. but it's just two year old hardware, a little more I think, and I'd like to squeeze a few more years' performance out of it. Is Cyanogen the best recommendation for the handset I have? I was thinking SlimRom, since I'd read it was good for that... but they don't have my handset specifically supported.

    Congratulations scrubofthegsalaxy!

    CyanogenMods CM13 Marshmallow ROM is still on nightly releases but is pretty darned good if you are prepared to put some effort and reading into it. Don't expect Samsung features like fingerprint scanner though as it is based on AOSP, (Android Open Source Project). However, it does have lots of features that are not on the Samsung TouchWiz firmware, such as, Themes for instance. See, Samsung Galaxy S5 Gets Android Marshmallow

    I never used the bells and whistles like the fingerprint scanner.

    It's mostly a communication and surfing device. But it gets kind of boggy, and I thought a lighter ROM would do me well. The lightest ROM on the market doesn't support my handset, though.

    I also wouldn't use the nightly release. Just the long-term one that was released in... October, was it? ... if I went Cyanogen.

    I just know right now that I'm looking for "not Samsung/TMO stock" because anything has to be better. The "best ROM guides" aren't too helpful in picking one out, other than listing Cyanogen at the top of the list every time.

    I am afraid that it is a case of, "suck it and see", or, "trial and error", with a lot of custom ROMs. They fall into 3 categories, usually. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Depends on how good the dev is.

    CyanogenMod are a company.

    Which is the custom ROM not available to you?

    I thought that Slim ROM for the S5, unofficial, died a death a bout a year ago.

    That's exactly my problem. The official site only reaches S4.

    I'll find something to try.
