That's odin refusing to flash tars that aren't Samsung-signed to non-unlocked phones. Unfortunately without an unlocked bootloader this method won't work.

Look into the safestrap method, achieves the same basic thing.

Had to Use Philz Touch Recovery CWM
  1. I had to use Odin 1.85 and Philz Touch Recovery (philz_touch_6.26.2-klte.tar) to root my device.
  2. I could not get Odin 3.x and TWRP to flash my device. I followed the instructions otherwise and they worked great.
  3. I installed Chainfire SuperSU from the Playstore.
  4. I installed the Xposed framework and the Xtether module
  5. I'm good.

Installing a Custom Recovery and Rooting the Verizon Developer Edition Galaxy S5

This only applies to the Verizon Developer Edition Galaxy S5, NOT the regular Retail Verizon Galaxy S5.
Given that is a Developer Edition device I would assume a basic understanding of Android, adb and other tools needed.

Let’s install a custom recovery (in our case TRWP), then install Root (in our case SuperSU), then make sure we do a backup of the whole device, just in case.
