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

You shouldn't need to root before installing a custom recovery. I never have done on Samsung devices.

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?
