    Hi

    I've followed How to Root Galaxy S5! | GalaxyS5Root.com as a guide to root & install rom for my Galaxy S5 T-Mobile US.
    My Recovery mode is running PhilZ Touch 6.26.2 and CWM 6.0.4.7 now.

    When i reboot now, i am stuck at the initial boot screen (w/ Set Warranty Bit - Recovery)

    I tried to do factory reset - same issue.

    My next step would be to install a stock rom, like http://www.androidrootz.com/2014/05/...ete-stock.html

    Update: using the stock rom method i was able to restore the phone to stock.

    Any other suggestions?

    (This could be a double post due to a browser refresh - if so my apologies)

    Hi

    So, is your phone still unusable? Or did the return to stock get your phone back in working order. and you want to re-root?

    All those guides linked to in post #1 are hopelessly out-of-date, (July 2014). Both for rooting and restoring firmware. Looks like they were written for Android 4.4.2, KitKat. Current firmware for T-Mobile (USA) is Android 5.1.1, Lollipop. PhilZ abandoned his custom recovery updates over a year ago.

    You need to download the latest stock T-Mobile (USA) firmware and flash it to your phone using Odin and by following the instructions and video contained in the links of #1.11 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide.

    Here is the stock firmware for the G900T model...

    Model SM-G900T
    Model name GALAXY S5
    Country USA (T-Mobile)
    Version Android 5.1.1
    Changelist 5406928
    Build date Mon, 14 Dec 2015 03:46:09 +0000
    Product code TMB
    PDA G900TUVS1FOL1
    CSC G900TTMB1FOL1

    HanUS, just for your future information - rooting depends on both the model phone AND the version of Android (sometimes even the date of the kernel).
