Hi,


i've just finished the "root" into my Galaxy S5. I've tried to install a custom recovery through Kies but it fails.

Now, when trying to access the recovery, i get the following message:

Custom binary blocked by reactivation lock
Secure Fail: Recovery


Any idea/help?

SOLVED:


Just go to settings, Security and deactivate Reactivation!

Glad you figured it out.

This isn't news though. Anyone who reads the forum a bit or did a search for reactivation lock would quickly find that it needs to be disabled before you can flash firmware. For anyone else who encounters this message, simply disable reactivation lock in the settings menu.
