Thanks! I found that this approach was the only one that worked to get my phone downgraded so that Towelroot would work.

Question about this fix, anyone have issues with fingerprint scanning after using the fix? I can't seem to get it working after I fixed my phone.

The following is how I got mine to be back up and running properly:
You will need 2 files which I will provide a spam free link to and a little bit of time..
Odin 3.09 link

Firmware for 900A link

Download the above files
extract the files
you will end up with 4 files
starting with

boot your phone into download mode
Hold volume down
hold home button
press power button

then hit volume up to continue

Now connect your phone to the pc

extract and open odin
Open odin 3.09

if it detects your phone it will show a com port lit up now you are good to go.

in odin 3.09
make sure auto reboot is checked
and F.reset Time

NO NEED FOR THE BL file at this time with our locked bootloader[B]in the bl tab Leave blank

Do not load the bl file as of yet we have a locked bootloader and it wont flash

pick the ap and then the ap file you downloaded
pick the cp tab and the cp file
then the same for the csc file
make sure all tabs are checked
the AP file will take over a minute to load dont get nervous odin has to load it into itself..
once all 3 are in their respective tabs and checked click start and that is it
in about 6 minutes you will boot back up to a stock galaxy s5 for att

Im trying to fix my wifes ATT Galaxy s5 active. We both just got new phones recently. I got a regular s5, she got the active. Im wishing we both got the regular. SHe accidentally turned on UPSM and now her phone is messed up. Theres no option to disable it. I rooted both our phones. I didnt remove any of the system apps, yet here we are, stuck with the same problem others are having. Stuck at a grey ATT logo. Im trying to just start over from scratch. I downloaded the files you recommended but i cannot get the AP file to work. I just get a failed error in Odin and the phone displays some kinda PIT error? What can i do to get out of this mess?! ive been trying to work on a solution all night and its wracking my brain!!! How can i just reset everything and start over? IDK why odin isnt letting me restore it back to default. Any ideas?

Phew , I finally was able to get everything back in order! Crisis averted! i loaded the phone up in Recovery mode and just did factory reset from there. Everything reset and loaded up fine! The best part was, i logged into google, all her apps installed themselves and her phone is still rooted! Go figure! lol So i dont even have to do that much! PHEEEEW! This was making me crazy! Seems like everything is back to normal. Still, i wonder why her phone got stuck in UPSM? I made sure that no system apps were deleted on either of our phones. All those basic apps were intact. Something else had to of caused it....

I apologize if this has been asked before, but will this work for NG3? I need to unroot my phone and I'm getting the error message mentioned in this thread.


Nevermind, it worked great, THANK YOU!

Did you ever get that fixed?

How I ended up in this situation on an insurance replacement phone was by rooting using towel root, installing safestrap/busybox and tried installing NuclearFallout 2.0 which I am running on my current (screen broken) phone. After reboot, it lags on the Samsung logo then goes to a blank screen with blue led. PC recognizes phone in this state, but can't install drivers, I'm not trying to, but that's what the PC does automatically.

I've tried using the method in this thread, tried wiping through recovery and trying a factory reset through recovery.

I can get into DL and recovery mode.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
