    My S5 G900F is restarting every two to three minutes, then only during this is showing imei unknown, baseband version unknown, and its says device status custom? Then when it reads sim it shows all the relevant information in about device, plus it then shows device status as official? Anyone got any ideas whats going wrong with phone. Thanks in advance.

    Is your phone rooted or ever been rooted?

    I just bought it and the owner said it has not been rooted but obviously I think it has. One minute it worked perfectly, the next it is malfunctioning. I am going to install the stock firmware, hopefully this will work.

    My initial thoughts were either... a corrupt /efs file or the phone had been blacklisted.

    Good luck.

    It was water damage. The previous owner did not inform of that.

    I have another S5 that shows the H+ symbol but will not enable mobile data? It was bought in germany o vodafone and now is in use in the UK. The network and mobile signals are really poor. Always stopping. Any ideas.
