    You can downgrade it to 4.4.2 (https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G900A/ ) and root that. See [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN.

    Or you could try Kingroot (the on-phone device version).

    I am afraid that the AT&T model of the Galaxy S5, G900A, has been un-rootable for more than 2 years, since the launch of Android 4.4.4. You cannot downgrade to an earlier firmware or use Kingo Root, etc; because of AT&T's own mega locked down bootloader. See #1.6 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide and At&t is there still no root
