Ive found that odin sometimes takes a minute to load in the .tar/.md5 file after you click ap and then select the firmware.

You can use the .tar/.md5 that you used to root your phone the first time. A question I would ask is what recovery are you using? Is it twrp or philz? I personally use twrp and there is an option for file browsing which should allow you to copy or move your internal storage to an sd card.

Now what I would suggest to you is to visit sammobile and download the NE5 firmware for the sprint gs5. Flash this firmware via odin 3.09 two times, as this is whar I had to do to upgrade my modem. Not sure why I had to do it twice but after the first flash my software was on NE5 and my modem was nd2. Once you have your phone back in working order, use towelroot or cf-autoroot to root your phone then flash twrp 2.7 in odin to get the custom recovery, and make your nandroid backup. I personally save my nandroid backups to a second microsd card I have this was I dont have to worry about accidentally deleting it.

There are a few custom roms that have the volume mod baked in I personally am running metalrom 1.1 and have done some extra debloating to fit my liking however the downloadable is fine how it is. I also like the RDDT line of roms however they arent NE5 yet so I would hold off until the respective developer releases something new.

I flashed a stock rom via the sd card because odin did not work I did EVERYTHING. Deleted rebooted messed with registry and would always get usb modem failed notification and even when it installed I would check device manager and it had a yellow triangle so I gave up with my pc even tho I used it to root.

After flashing the rom it booted but somethings dont work in xposed because of the framework (which I think I need to update via odin, not sure)

Thanks for the help
