    Look up your model number on www.sammobile.com under firmware and that should help you reinstall your OS, or find a flashable zip and install from TWRP.

    Hello and welcome to Android Central Jorden Adler!

    You will need to download and flash your phone's original, stock, firmware by following the instructions and video in the the links of #1.11 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide.

    You will need to know which of the 40 models of Galaxy S5 you have as well as which country you are in and which carrier, if the phone was carrier branded, you are on.

    Ok im pretty sure i got my model number firmware but im not sure what do you mean by branded
    if you mean i got my phone locked then no.
    i download a zip file and in there is a MD5 file is that it?
    and for some reason every time connect my device to the computer via USB while it is searching for the drivers it downloads all the drivers except for the MTP drivers it says failed to download drivers.

    I've done this to a galaxy tab 3 once. I was without it for a week because I could not find the correct firmware for it. I just used Samsung Kies Emergency Firmware Recovery and it restored my tablet with the latest update. (if there is one for your model) I hope this helps and works for you.

    can you please tell me step by step what you did in order to solve your problem !
    because i also rooted my phone , but i accidentally ended deleting my OS , now im stuck with a rooted SGS5 with no OS .
    so i want to revert it to stock firmware cause rooting has been a nightmare for me.
    i'd really appreciate it if you tell me what you did step by step!

    Hello and welcome to Android Central Deventom!

    You will need to download the stock Samsung firmware for your model of phone and CSC code and flash it to your phone using Odin and by carefully and thoroughly reading the instructions and watching the video in the links of #1.11 of 41 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide. Since this is stock firmware, it will un-root you and you will need to re-root again.

    Hello, i have downloaded Odin and i have found the firmware of my Samsung Galaxy s5 from the Sam mobile website , i found the firmware by conducting a search in the website by typing in my Model number : SM-G900F and choosing the correct one by filtering out the one depending on my country , so SM-G900F is the European model and then i choose my Firmware depending on my country , i also downloaded the Samsung usb drivers , so all im waiting on now is actually downloading the Firmware because i have really slow internet in my country and i don't know how to get the firmware other than online.
    so after i do that my phone will become un-rooted right? i dont want to re-root it

    Type in youtube "how to install lolipop on the galaxy s5 (inam ghafoor channel)" because im not allowed to post links in this website i cant provide u with it.
    The link above will direct u to a video on how i fixed my phone after deleting my OS like a and *****.
    Just to make it clear the same instructions that u will receive in the video are the same as the instructions the people that responded to u about your problem (deleting your OS).
    in-case u dont know what u are doing,take a look at the video and u will be surprise on how simple this is.
    this video helped me and hopefully it will help u .

    Try wiping your phone's cache partition as per #1.3 of S5 Update Problems - Dummies Guide to see if that boots your phone.

    The firmware that is shown in that YouTube guide is the stock, unbranded, Samsung firmware for Lollipop for Poland and is only intended for the international model, G900F and none of the other 41 models of Galaxy S5. Flashing any stock Samsung firmware will unroot you and replace any custom recoveries such as TWRP.

    Download the latest stock Samsung firmware for unbranded U.K., see below, and flash it to your phone by carefully following the instructions and video in the links of #1.11 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide.

    Model SM-G900F
    Model name GALAXY S5
    Country United Kingdom
    Version Android 6.0.1
    Changelist 7182592
    Build date Thu, 07 Jul 2016 10:15:00 +0000
    Security Patch Level 2016-07-01
    Product code BTU

    You may need to wipe the cache partition again after flashing if it will not boot or even do a Factory Data Reset in Recovery Mode.
