That's right, and i am almost 100% sure that the phone of PJ@y-Z will show "G9006V" in download mode. PhoneInfo was giving me the exact same informations.

It kind of works as it is, but it is impossible to root.
I installed Lidroid 1.2, a stock based rooted rom, it works very well. It is kitkat, but i don't like lollipop anyway.

Yes, it's SM-G9006V in odin mode based G9006VZNU1BOE3.
But how is it possible to merge two firmwares?

No idea, but it seems some smart guys found a way ,convenient to get rid of all the unsold chinese S5. I read there were tons of them!

You mean backup the frankenstein software to a computer? I don't know, but it would be a nice little trick to "free" this rom, as a simple way to get google play (on lollipop) on a chinese S5. The problem is that to my knowledge you can't root this strange rom, so useless to me. Lidroid is just perfect in my case, with the only downside is that it probably won't be updated anymore.
