    Do you mean you, "rooted", your phone or have you simply just updated it to Lollipop?

    Step-1: Extract the downloaded root package on the computer to get a file with .tar.md5 extension

    Step-2: Switch off the Galaxy S5 and enter Download mode by holding Home, Power and Volume Down buttons together until the construction Android robot and a triangle appear on the phone's screen. Press the Power button again to enter Download mode

    Step-3: Ensure that Galaxy S5 USB drivers are installed on the computer

    Step-4: Launch Odin on the computer

    Step-5: Connect the Galaxy S5 to the computer using USB cable while it is in Download mode. When the phone is connected successfully, one if the ID: COM boxes will turn blue with the COM port number. This step might take some time

    Step-6: In Odin click the AP button and select the .tar.md5 file that was extracted in step-1

    Step-7: Check that the Auto-reboot and F.Reset Time options are not selected in Odin

    Step-8: Double check everything and hit the Start button in Odin to begin the installation process. This will take a few minutes to complete

    Step-9: When the installation process is completed, the phone will reboot into recovery mode and install the root package. The ID: COM box will then turn blue

    Step-10: You can safely unplug the phone from the computer, once the home screen shows up

    I Used that method.

    OK... this is what you need to do...

    1. Download the stock Samsung firmware for your model of phone and CSC/Product code and flash it by carefully reading all the instructions contained in the links of #1.11 of 40 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    2. Now you should have your phone service back again and you can re-root your G900F by carefully following the instructions and downloads in the links of post #36, here.
