Actually I don't know what version vanilla is. I have the S5 with touchwiz I only just want the Android look like a nexus. Don't like the touchwiz design.

Check download.cyanogenmod.org.

Edit: if you have the G900f, check the klte category.

CM11; http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=klte
Gapps: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Google_Apps

Download both and place them on your phone or the sd card. Boot into twrp/cwm and factory reset. Flash CM, then gapps. Boot up and you're done.

Sure, you can do a nandroid within cwn/twrp but once you flash something, Knox will forever be broken.

Be aware, the cyanogen ROM is a heavily modified ROM based only on kitkat which bares little resemblance to a pure google kit kat rom the likes of what you would find on a nexus device.
