Default Installing recovery

Hey guys, Trying to install philz touch so i can root my new S5

I don't have a micro sd card atm, So i need to use odin. I get an error when flashing philz touch: secure check fail: recovery (phone) and odin says fail (auth) any idea why?

S5 is SM-G900I

Make sure to use tar.md5 and not zip.

Not that silly :P I've flashed plenty of recoverys/roms/kernel's on my old S3. But never ran into this error before.

Also tried TWRP, Same error. I'm not sure if it's the phone or windows 8.1 x64, But secure check fail points to the phone.. hmm

You shouldn't need to root before installing a custom recovery. I never have done on Samsung devices.
// LG G3 (D855) // Stock // Stock //

S3(White) > M7(Red) > Note 3(Black) > Nexus 5(Black) > M8(Gunmetal) > LG G3 (Titan Grey)

Is this a joke? I thought custom recovery was not possible on the S5.

Maybe my statement is only true for Vz.

What carrier are you on?
