Hey everyone, my new Galaxy S5 G900I won't root using Odin. I've tried repeatedly. Using the CF Auto Root Method and the install Custom Recovery first then flash superuser method and both methods have the same outcome.
This is the how it comes up on Odin:

I can't seem to find the problem
any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have all the drivers installed, the Samsung USB Driver and I haven't tried adb because I used Odin to root my S4 before on the same computer but the S5 won't work.

I FOUND A FIX AND IT WAS SO SIMPLE

For anyone else having this annoying problem theres a simple fix.

1. Goto settings
2. Settings > Security
3. Ensure that "REACTIVATION LOCK" is UNCHECKED
4. Try to root again using Odin and hopefully it works for you
