    Hello and welcome to Android Central Ahmad Pajouhesh!

    Unusual to just require the Sprint/Virgin/Boost/Cellular South, G900P, Lollipop bootloader and modem. Is there any particular reason for this instead of flashing the complete OA6 firmware for Android 5.0? Which country and carrier are you on?

    Thank you for your reply.
    I want to flash a custom ROM on my phone. the developer says that I have to flash lollipop bootloader and modem before flashing the ROM. unfortunately, the developer is not available and I couldn't find required files.

    OK. I can see why you would need to downgrade to Lollipop as this is an old custom ROM that has been abandoned by its developer some 12 months ago. I certainly would not recommend you flashing this as it will not contain any of the latest bug fixes or security updates and is no longer supported.

    Yes, I know that this is an old one but it has some features that I need. I've talked to some other g900p owners who have installed it on their devices and the bugs and problems that they faced are not that much important to me. I would appreciate it if you could just tell me how to get bootloader and modem.

    Well, assuming that you have the Sprint, G900P, model of Galaxy S5 and are currently on a CDMA network, (Sprint/Verizon/US Cellular/etc.), you could just download the stock OA6, Lollipop, firmware and flash it to your phone as per #1.11 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide. Here is the firmware to download...

    Model SM-G900P
    Model name GALAXY S5
    Country Spint (cdma)
    Version Android 5.0
    Changelist 3859396
    Build date Fri, 23 Jan 2015 03:10:50 +0000
    Security Patch Level N/A
    Product code SPR
    PDA G900PVPU1BOA6
    CSC G900PSPT1BOA6

    Thank you so much.
    So there is no need to flash separate bootloader and modem? just flashing the ROM will do the job?

    That is why I recommended the first Lollipop firmware release for your model, as it contained the new Android 5.0 bootloader and, "should", overwrite your existing one. Which country and network are you on?

    Remember, though, that flashing a ROM wipes all data and downloaded apps, so back up anything you'll want to restore later.

    I'm living in Iran and I'm using my phone as an unlocked one.

    The G900P, CDMA, model is barely compatible with any of Iran's GSM networks...

    so far I've used both MTN Irancell and Hamrah-e-Avaal. The first and the fifth in the photo that you sent.

    As my earlier screenshot shows, those 2 are compatible with 2G and 3G, along with Rightel. All other networks only offer 2G and none of them will be able to offer 4G/LTE to a CDMA phone.

    Yes, you're right and I said that I'm using 2g and 3g networks. Actually, I'm living in a city that doesn't have sufficient 4g coverage and so far I haven't used 4g. Besides, using a Xposed framework, I can cycle among GSM /WCDMA /LTE networks. Yet there isn't 4g signal.
