Hi fellow Pinoys!

I'm fairly new here and I've just got my 16gb GS5 from Globe.

I hope you'll be patient in answering my VERY basic questions.



1. Should I root or install a Custom Recovery first?

2. I tried installing TWRP using Odin, but it failed, it said Auth Failed. (Luckily my phone was not bricked)

3. Has anyone installed a Custom Recovery or Rooted their phones yet? If yes, please share how you did it.

BTW, i'm using SkipSoft Android Toolkit here. I have installed basic drivers and followed instructions carefully.

Thanks!

Hey man,

I carefully followed the instructions on that page but still failed.

Could it be that my Bootloader is locked?

Is there any way to check if its the case?

Here's my Build number btw: KOT49H.G900FXXU1ANE2

Hi guys!

Good news! Finally got it working.

Just needed to Disable the following setting:

Settings -> Security -> Reactivation Lock.

After that, it all worked out just fine.
