I bought a new S5 after totaling my old one, and I am trying to get it rooted. I flash the latest recoveries from TWRP and PHILZ, odin says reset and pass, but it doesn't register on my phone. My knox is still 0x0. I just updated to NE5 so I think that may be the problem. Any solutions?

Odin is very finicky. Try changing usb cables and changing ports. That should, and normally does, fix the issue. Good luck.

Ok, I tried that. Still nothing. Used 2 and 3.0. Disabled anti virus too. Any other ideas? Thanks for the advice though!

Which odin version are you using? 3.07 or 3.09 that could be a problem too. I know when I was updating my modem to ne5 I couldn't use 3.07 because it wouldn't update I had to use 3.09 for it to work. It could be the same problem your having too. Just saying

I tried using all the versions still no luck. I even tried using it on Phone rather than PDA and still no luck. Can I just push it through fastboot commands or something?

If you are already rooted you can try an app called flashify, it's in the play store. It works pretty good for flashing recoveries.

I'm not rooted, I plan on flashing the recovery so I can install a ROM. Are there any reasons why ODIN would say pass but not give me recovery? I tried 2 computers so I have a feeling it's the phone.

I don't know, I've never had a problem with Odin.
