Hey guys!

So I went ahead and followed this guide to go back to stock 4.4.2

I then went ahead and followed this guide starting from the part that says "Install Pre-Rooted Lollipop on AT&T Galaxy S5"

I went ahead and installed busybox from the playstore and then installed SafeStrap.apk. But now, safestrap doesn't load when I'm booting up the phone so I'm not able to install this rom. Any ideas?

In the first post of talkingmonkeys thread he has detailed instructions on how to use safestrap on lollipop. I used the method there on my old s5. I think it depends on what bootloader you have. You might have to odin stock if your phone won't boot. Do you know what bootloader you have?

I went ahead and odined back to stock and am doing the process all over again.

And this is the guide I followed and it worked.

Thank you so much

FlashFire Method (Thanks Rakuu for writing this, I made some changes to this guide):
Open flashfire, tap the +, and then tap "Flash zip or OTA" and browse to where you saved this rom on your device and add it.
Tap the + and tap "Wipe" and check everything except internal storage (unless you want to wipe your external sdcard)
Now make sure you have the actions in the following order:
Wipe
Flash zip or OTA
Just be sure that wipe is the first thing it does. FlashFire likes to set it as last even if you select to wipe before you add the rom zip.
Check to make sure within the actions you have everything checked correctly, you can leave everroot disabled as the installer in the ROM zip does this, and also leave reboot as default.
Tap the lightning bolt and then tap OK and wait for it to do its work.

glad you got it working. my new rom threads have instructions specific for FF..

what happened most likely is you flashed the rom then wiped it with the wipe option in ff so there was no rom installed for it to boot up

Alright, I'm apparently retarded, I made sure it wiped first but the phone still got stuck booting up.

I tried 3.2_no_teth version. lol
