Default Lost root and gapps wont work!

So my G5 Active was rooted and I had all of my mods and root apps etc. but then one day an at&t update appeared so since i had safestrap and multiple backups i wanted to see if supersu's survival mode worked... Well it did not work so the i went to reboot my phone and the safestrap boot screen didn't popup nor can i go into the safestrap recovery installer and boot into safestrap by clicking "boot into safestrap". So not the end of the world i don't desperately need root (even though i would like it back) but the playstore cant connect to the internet. I have tried re-installing and uninstalling updates. So this is really annoying and in my opinion a big problem but when i went to my workplace the next day and i connected to the Wifi at my workplace it worked again so then i realized that the only difference between my wifi and my offices wifi is that my offices wifi uses a proxy. So then i though it was the host file since i was having this problem right before i lost root and updated gapps and i had adaway. I cant access the host file without root and i tried using ADB push/pull and when i try to push it back it says read only interface so now I'm really stuck and help wold be much appreciated. Thank for taking the tome to read this.

I believe you have to ODIN back to before the update and then block the update, I haven't seen anyone say this is successful but what I understand it should be.

I did exactly that last night. I used ODIN to downgrade to Build ANE4 after the OTA update installed Build ANG3 on my Galaxy S5 Active. I had to do a factory reset afterward because my stock email app was repeatedly crashing. But towelroot worked and I'm back to normal with the OTA update frozen by Titanium Backup.
