Thumbs up THANK YOU

Thank you so much for this. i traded my htc m8 for the s5 yesterday and it was rooted and had SS recovery. I wanted it stock so deleted the root and SS files and was stuck at splash screen. I tried flashing stock firmware via odin and kept failing. i got so nervous until i found your guide! worked like a charm thank you much!!!
