Question [Q] Flashing Back to Stock Assistance Please?

Hey guys,

I purchased the Galaxy S5 back in April and now I am selling it so that I can purchase the LG G3. The problem is I'm trying to flash back to stock with Odin and it won't work. I downloaded the stock firmware from Sammobile and loaded it into Odin, put my phone in download mode and hit start and it says "fail." I can't get it to flash. I'm rooted but I haven't installed a recovery or custom rom. Any guidance would really help. I have no idea why I'm getting fail errors.

I'm rooted but I haven't installed a recovery or custom rom. I used the Supersu update by chainfire to disable knox. I remember on previous Galaxy S versions that if you took the OTA update it prevented you from flashing custom roms of flashing back to stock. But I haven't taken an OTA update or anything so I can't figure out why it keeps saying fail? Do you think I need to re-enable knox? If so, can I do that in Supersu? Or is there another problem? Any guidance would really help.
My thread here will get you back to stock with the included files

DO NOT TRY TO FLASH THE BL FILE as our bootloader is still locked and it will just fail.
just flash the other 3 files

enjoy
