Why don't you just root your phone and install Safestrap and flash G900F, G900A, G900T Roms?

Sorry...I'm on the s5 active..and the reason I asked this method is because I was rooted with safe strap and wanted to unroot and take the OTA update. .well I tried all the methods mentioned in that post but Odin just stops at initializing and when I try going to the stock recovery and flashing the update there it's still NE4 not NG4. .so I'm kinda lost
