Default [Q] Root sm-g900h

Hello Friends
I just rooted my new galaxy s5, the sm-g900h version with the corresponding root. But it software bricked my phone. Now I have the "phone-triangle-pc" screen. I had all my galaxy rooted before. So I am not a totally beginner. I tried also to redo this process but didn't work. What can I do now? Please help. Thanks a lot

It looks very much alike. I haven't done anything different from other times I rooted. But then again: How do I fix it?? There is no firmware available yet.

I just rooted my international Exynos SM-G900H using the corresponding cf-root on the main page.
The device and odin was freezing midway through the process on V3.07... i then removed the battery and reinserted it and used Odin V1.85.. Worked like a charm !!

Wow that sucks.

Just got your S5 and now it's bricked.

I always recommend waiting for others to try first

Galaxy S series devices have never bricked for me... they can't IMHO
The phone to pc connection icon that we mistake for a brick is simple to fix.. just remove the battery... wait for 5 seconds, reinsert it and enter Download mode again ( Vol down + Home + Power )

Actually, it's not bricked. Just go here https://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=SM-G900H
1. Download your version
2. use Odin version 3.07 http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...64542518,d.b2U
3. Make sure auto reboot and F.time reset checked, UNCHECK re-partition
4. Welcome back G900H.

Hope that helps!

To end this thread: I finally found the firmware without provider (Argentina) flashed it and started root again, and it worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the process my S5 was usb debugged but I rooted without chip. Now I introduced the chip and it worked (don't know why). Thanks to you all.
