Before you begin with the instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged — at least 50% battery of the device.
icon-check-circle STEP 0: CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.
To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be SM-G900F!
Do not use the procedures discussed here on any other device of Samsung or any other company. This is not for any other variant of S5 either, so don’t try this on SM-G900H/I/etc., or S5 variants at Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, US Cellular, etc. You have been warned!
