I downloaded the original file you guys want a few days after the OP posted it. I saved it to my PC "just in case" things went wrong on my Dev S5. I will send that file to anyone who needs it, but I need an email/dropbox/or someway to send it. I have never flashed the file so I can't promise it will work. I know when the file was initially available a number of users flashed it (to test it) with success.

Angry FIXED!!!

Just wanted to follow up to let everyone know that I have fixed the "Custom binary blocked by Reactivation Lock" error that had bricked my device.
I downloaded the recovery file (I'll update with a link to this file)
I flashed with Odin 3.0.7 (PDA)
It FAILED. (I expected this)
I unplugged USB, pulled the battery out
I put it back in, booted into stock recovery with Power + vol down.
Selected Normal Boot
Everything Fine!
Went to settings and turned off RL. LOL
Restarted Phone with normal Power Off menu - still fine
After reboot, opened SuperSU, still showed QuickBoot with root access
Opened QuickBoot, tapped on Recovery
It booted into TWRP (I'm on - no problems
Rebooted again. No more error when booting to custom recovery

** the battery pull trick after Odin flash fail I picked up from the Note 3 forums **
** If you have SECURE FAIL: KERNEL, you may need to perform a factory reset during the first boot after battery pull! **

A big thanks to all those who helped me via the forums and PM!

The file is available for download here: That's like 1.7GB so no redownloading, testing your internet speed, and such frivolity like that, please. I have enough bits in the bucket for about 300-500 downloads, so think before you click. But if you need it, please click.
