    Virgin Mobile are in Europe and Canada, so which model of Galaxy S5 do you have as per #1.2 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    Usually, when flashing different custom ROMs, it is always advisable to do a Factory Data Reset before flashing. There are a selection of custom ROMs for the Sprint, G900P, model, here.

    Sounds like you need to find a flashable .zip file for the Virgin Canada modem/baseband and you could flash that on to a Sprint custom ROM.

    TOP TIP: You may want to restore your stock Virgin Canada firmware as a little bird has told me that they are rolling out Marshmallow, Android 6.0.1, stock firmware update, anytime now.

    Can you point me in the right direction to be able to restore it to stock? I'm still a noob to rooting honestly. And like for instance I can't use my data or send messages or anything if I use a different rom other than Moar. I would like to be able to try other rooms out without losing my data.

    You will need to give me your phone's Product code before I can direct you to the stock Virgin firmware download. See #1.8 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    When you say data, you mean a data signal and not the data, (documents, photos, etc: ), on your phone? If so, then the issue could well be that you do not have the correct modem firmware for Virgin in other custom ROMs.

    It says product code not active. And yes i meant my data signal. The only rom I was ever able to install was the Moar rom because I don't lose my data signal.

    The custom ROM has wiped the Product code then. It happens sometimes. OK, I guess it was this stock firmware for Product code VMU that you need to download and flash in Odin by carefully reading and following the instructions in the links of #1.11 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    Model SM-G900P
    Model name GALAXY S5
    Country Unknown
    Version Android 5.0
    Changelist 4781399
    Build date Tue, 10 Nov 2015 07:37:35 +0000
    Product code VMU
    PDA G900PVPU3BOK4
    CSC G900PSPT3BOK4


    Make sure you back up everything prior to flashing as your phone may require a Factory Data Reset when reverting from a custom ROM to stock firmware, if it will not boot. See, Backup! Backup! Backup! NOW!

    Yes that's correct but I'd just rather install other custom rooms first without losing my data signal. If you can help me i would appreciate it. If I don't have a computer to restore my phone to stock right now.

    I do not know of any custom ROMs that are designed specifically for the Virgin model and baseband of the G900P. I am afraid it is a case of going through custom ROMs and searching for Virgin compatible ones. Maybe a post on the xda forum linked in post #5, above.

    Xda is confusing to me to navigate but thank you for your help I'm back at square one though essentially.
