    I ran into the same issue on an AT&T Galaxy S5, trying to downgrade from 5.0 to 4.4.2. ODIN would fail on me too. From what I have gathered, it is not possible to downgrade, period, at this time. The bootloader is locked I believe and you cannot downgrade or even root if you are on a OTA 5.0 version. I semi-bricked my phone trying to downgrade and ended up having to download the 5.0 kernel and flash using ODIN to get my phone working again.
    Brianthelion26; Seriously dude, where did you get the 5.0 kernel exactly? I've given up on downgrade and just want to get the phone working again....

    Where did you find the 5.0 kernel to flash. I have had the same issue other have had and now I can only get to odin mode. Can't boot to the OS at all. Want to downgrade to 4.4.2, but I'll take 5.0 if I can just get it working again. I have the AT&T model SM-G900A

    Thanx for this. I successfully downgraded my G900T to 4.4.2, getting the 2015-02-18 firsmware from Firmware for Samsung SM-G900T - SamMobile

    Here's the silly part, feel free to laugh.

    The reason i downgraded was to run Firefox 28 which would not run under Lollipop. It did run under KitKat but, was slow as molasses when opening a link and not all my plugins came over from sync. From the looks of it, they cannot (all) be used. Ugh. And then, encryption took away from fingerprint unlock which was really annoying. I can live with a swipe for security. But my password each time is a drag.

    So, it was back to 5.0. But first, i want root. Towelroot didn't work in that version, so i downgraded to the earliest version sammobile had listed. Towelroot worked like a charm. Kies took me back up to 5, and knox is still at 0x0.

    In the end, i enjoyed the process. Going through it demytified the process and made it a lot less scary.

    Sammobile does not seem to offer the kitkat download for verizon phones anymore? Searching for the sm-g900v gets no results. Even if I force the link http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/database/SM-G900V it only gives the lollipop and no valid links for the kitkat. Does anyone know another reputable source for it?

    Your link above, displays 2 * Android 4.4.2 and 3 * Android 4.4.4 firmwares for the Verizon, G900V, all of which are KitKat!!!

    Have checked all 5 downloads and they are all working fine.

    Hi, I have the last 5.0 unlocked carrier but says XEF on CSC phone is the SM-G900F 2KAXEF and I want rollback to 4.4.2 to make root with towelroot
    my question is my firmware says 5.0 - G900FXXU1BOE5 and the firmwares avaitables to download says:
    4.4.2 - G900FXXU1ANCE, G900FXXU1ANE2, G900FXXU1, G900FXXU1ANG9 and G900FXXU1ANJ1
    I can use for example the ANCE (last than June) assuming I have the BOE5 ? I'm so afraid of briking this

    You do not need to roll back to 4.4.2 or use Towelroot to root the international G900F model. It does not have a locked bootloader. You just need to flash the appropriate CF-Root kernel.

    If you are at present, running the latest, U.S. carrier, Verizon OE1 firmware on model G900V you will be unable to downgrade your firmware at all and particularly to Android 4.4.2, to root your phone thanks to Verizon's own new and unique bootloader. See, here.

    It would appear that Verizon does not allow you to... refuse an update... downgrade from an update or... want you to root their phones!

    WARNING! Verizon are rolling the OE1 update out to customers and unless you are already rooted and have disabled OTA updates, there is no way of stopping it.

    "You will be assimilated! Resistance is futile!"

    Thanks Verizon... welcome to, "the land of the free!"

    Verizon have only released 5 KitKat firmwares for 4.4.2 and 4.4.4...

    NCG

    NE9

    NHA

    NI2

    NK2

    You have tried 2, unsuccessfully, already and we are told that NCG is a no go, So that only leaves NHA and NI2 left to try.

    You DO NOT need to use Towelroot on the G900F model or downgrade as it does not have a locked bootloader. See my reply to you in post #189. Using CF-Root will not trip the Knox flag but a custom recovery will.
