Any way to factory reset or get off of the retail demo mode of S5 AT&T SM-G900A?
Already tried
1)Power - Home- Volume Up - Factory Reset
2)Enter popular code 5444
3)Flash orginal firmware with Odin

All of the above still coming back the original retail mode.
Please help

I heard you can use apex launcher to create a shortcut to the activity and disable / uninstall
