I don't know what you're saying, but if you have safestrap, then you still have stock recovery too. Powering the phone off, then volume down + menu + power button will show that.

It is the only firmware available for the 900A. Take a look at sammobile.com. The same change list. ..

And I keep trying to tell people that the firmware from Sammobile and Samsung-updates does not work on our S5 if you've updated to ND3. We must use the one from the general section, which is the same firmware, but different file.
