Can you upload yourself to a server location such as Google Drive, Dropbox etc then get the link and simply paste it into your message to Chainfire so don't try to post the actual link just a text version in your message body so it would look like this http:// www .mediafire.com/download/12iuwe7ja320bbl/Odin_v3.07.zip
It is a new member restriction stopping you posting the actual link, don't know if this will work though but give it a try.

thanks for help.
If you have flashed with Odin before you will know the process but just in case you have missed something below is what you need and what to do, the original Samsung S5 USB cable is important to use, I tried originally with my S3 USB cable and it failed, swapped it for the S5 cable and flashed straight away without any problem.
1. A recent version of Odin like the one in my earlier link.
2. Extracted the md5 image from the CF-Auto Root zip file
3. You a\re using the original Samsung S5 USB cable and not any other micro USB cable
4. You have the most recent Samsung drivers installed
The best way to ensure you keep these up to date is to install Kies 3, you don't need to use it but it is best for keeping the drivers up to date
5. If you do have Kies installed make sure it is not running even in the background when using Odin
6. Put your phone in download mode and connect to your PC
7. Start Odin and wait for the ID;Com to indicate usually highlighted in blue
8. Click the PDA and locate your CF-Auto Root md5 file
9. Wait for Odin to check the file
Once checked and ready click start and let the process run, the phone will reboot once finished and you should have root.
