This is a compilation of threads that I used in order to SIM unlock a Sprint Galaxy S5 G900P that came with Lollipop 5.0. I have always used the SSU.apk from this incredible thread in order to unlock my sprint Galaxy S4, S5 and Note devices. However, whenever I install the apk and try to run it on 5.0, I get an error saying that the application (SSU) stopped working or something like that and it doesn't even work.

Just to be clear, I didn't came up with this idea. This is just a compilation of different ideas that I found on XDA on different thread to accomplish this.

Disclaimer: Do this at you own risk. I am not responsible for anything that happens to your device. I can only assure you this worked for me.

Use this steps to Sim unlock you G900P from Sprint running Lollipop 5.0

1. Downgrade your ROM from Lollipop 5.0 (OA6 ) to Kitkat 4.4.2 (NE5) using this link . Yes you can do this!!!
-Remember for this step you need Odin

2. Unlock you device by Installing and running SSU.apk using this thread

At this point your device should be unlocked. If you want to go back to Lollipop OA6 proceed to step 3.

3. Download the Lollipop 5.0 ROM OA6 from here and flash it using Odin by following the same steps on point 1.

That is all. I hope this helps you guys as much as it did to me.

Hi guys, i just bought the S5 Sport on Ebay and intend to unlock it to use with the GSM network in NZ. Unfortunately, this device comes with android 5.0 lollipop that can't use the App SSU to unlock
I have tried to download the older android version on Sammobile but i got the error message Fused 2 > Bin 1 when i tried to downgrade from 5.0 to 4.x. Just google the this issue and find out the reason that the bootloader is locked at 5.0 version, Samsung just only allow me to go to higher firmware, not the old ones

I also have tried to root and install Custom recovery (successful) and install the custom 4.x rom. Tried exactly what the other post said ( download the one for G900p and reflash the Kernel of G860P) but the phone keep restarting (i've tried many roms on XDA, on one works)

So anyone help me to how to downgrade the android of this S5 Sport Or another method to unlock Sprint S5 sport on 5.0 please.

thank you

Same issue, and also made another post just like you. Still no answers, I guess this is a common issue for S5 Sport users

I'm still unable to unlock my Sprint Galaxy S5 for international carriers - ran SSU under 4.4.2 - phone recognized the GSM sim but no signal acquired. Going into Mobile Networks, phone is unable to find any available networks. I have selected GSM/UMTS in the Network Mode selection.

Did you try changing to GSM network? Settings -> Mobile Networks -> Prefered Network Type -> GSM/UMTS ? I am able to find the signal after doing this. Calls/Messaging works. But data is very unstable.

Yes. It works with my GSM sim in India after following the above steps. Had to manually change the network type to GSM/UMTS (from CDMA) in settings.

The international unlock has been out for awhile. I thought this thread was domestic,usa unlock.

Can someone confirm that using an international sim in Sprint S5 that has been internationally unlocked will acquire no signal when inside the US?
