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.

Custom binary blocked by reactivation lock.

This is the message I am getting after installing if I go to the TRWP boot (volume up, home and on/off button).

The phone is working normally 900F wit stock kernel, Cf root and TWRP recovery, I want to install some of the aroma package but I can't install right now.

I have no reactivation in the security menu?

Thanks and greetings,

Erik.

It's called the reactivation lock. To getvthee go to - Settings - System - Security.You have to scroll down the security menu to find it.

I flashed the twrp recovery using flashify from android itself. Flashify is in the play store.

Your lucky aftrr I tried flashing twrp my phone would not even go past the error seen.

When I first tried flashing twrp using the twrp app. It worked first time on flashify.
