I recently soft broke my GS5 active and was wondering if anyone knows if samsung will either 1. If by request allow me access to a stock firmware or 2. Be able to send my phone in and for a fee have the firmware reset? I'm just brainstorming at this point and am a bit desperate any feedback or advice would be helpful.

Thank you but ive already checked there unless informed otherwise I believe my model # is sm-g870a if that is correct then they do not have my firmware available. Whats more important at this point for me is if anyone could answer whether or not samsung may release or fix my phone at special request or is that unheard of?
