Verizon Galaxy S5 Won't Flash ANYTHING With ODIN Or Other Methods

I'm having a really hard time with this device. First off I picked up this device for $20 and I thought I would be able to easily flash Lineage OS on it and use it as a household phone and remote control. I really want to use it with Lineage OS so I can connect my google voice to it as well as use it as a remote control and for connecting my apps. So far I have tried several methods. I installed the Samsung USB Drivers and I put the phone in USB Debugging Mode and then booted the phone into Download Mode and ODIN keeps telling me FAIL on (auth). It doesn't matter what I try to flash, even if it's official firmware files it still won't flash.

Can ANYONE please help me figure this out? The latest firmware on this device appears to be:

Model Number: SM-G900V
Firmware Version: G900VVRU2DQL1.
Kernel Version: 3.4.0 [email protected] #1 Friday, September, 29, 2017.
Build Number: MMB29M.G900VVRU2DQI2
Hardware Version: G900V.05
Security Software Version: MDF V1.1 Release 6, VPN V1.4 Release 6.0, ASKS V1.2 Release 161011
Configuration Version: J13.SAM.SMG900V.1
Android Version: 6.0.1

Download Mode reports the following:
ODIN MODE
Product Name: SM-G900V
Current Binary: Samsung Official
System Status: Official
Reactivation Lock: Off
QualComm SecureBoot: ENABLE (CSB)
RP SWREV: S1, T2, R1, A2, P1
Secure Download: Enable
UDC Start
Secure Check Fail : recovery

Update: I was able to flash a kernel with a md5 just now. It's the lolipop kernel. So now I imagine only verified md5 files will flash? I would like to flash a recovery so I can install Lineage OS.

Update: Now I bricked the phone lmao.

Update: Now I imagine I need the stock Marshmallow kernel to flash it back so I can at least have a working phone. Where is the stock Marshmallow kernel?

Sound like you have a bootloader locked version: (
I don't have much experience with G900V variety, perhaps @Ibuprophen would be able to clarify.

The following thread outlines the 2 CID versions used on the G900V device, how to obtain which one you have (with only 1 of the CIDs that has an unlockable bootloader) and your options for each one. Be sure to carefully read the OP.

https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=3561529

The following thread covers an alternative way to obtain the Stock Firmware and PIT files your looking for that's specific to the G900V device. It also has an easy how-to steps for flashing them in Odin as well.

Good Luck!

The CID APK reports that the eMMC Chip / CID Number starts with 15 and thus has an unlockable bootloader. How do I now unlock the bootloader on this device now that I know it is unlockable?

Awesome I got the bootloader unlocked by using the guide you posted. But now, after I installed the MAGISK firmware from TWRP, I rebooted the phone and its stuck on the Verizon Logo and won't boot into Android. Also, how do I install Lineage OS now? I downloaded the latest Lineage OS build for KLTE from the official Lineage OS server and I placed the ZIP package in the phone internal memory. I had attempted to install that zip file from the TWRP recovery mode, but it said it couldn't flash / install it.

Do I need to upgrade the TWRP version to flash it? Also, android just booted for me as I was typing this.. it just took a long time.

UPDATE:

woohoo! I got LineageOS installed. It's starting the bootup for it as I type this! This literally took me all day long to flash this stuff on here because I had to study the forum posts and figure out what to do. Thankfully the guides are simple and the steps are in logical order.

I got it flashed by installing busybox and TWRP on the MAGISK firmware. After it booted up the MAGISK Android firmware I went and installed the official busybox and TWRP applications from the Playstore, then I flashed the recovery with the latest TWRP recovery image, rebooted to recovery and installed the latest Lineage OS nightly build. It is currently booting up Lineage OS! Thank you so much ibuprofin!

I will be writing a detailed guide for unlocking the bootloader, installing the latest TWRP and installing the latest Lineage OS Firmware for the Galaxy S5 ( SM-G900V ). I will be downloading and organizing each file into a thoroughly organized directory system and post the guide and download link in a new forum topic post here.

This is already covered...

The following Guide includes the steps for unlocking the Bootloader for the SM-G900V device with a CID15 (and more)...

[GUIDE] Root, Bootloader Unlocks, and More! by AptLogic

... The following is a link to the Official LineageOS Wiki page that covers the installation of the LineageOS Custom Firmware.

LineageOS Install Guides - LineageOS Wiki

It's up to you regarding what you want to do but, I just wanted to provide you with the information already available.

I wish you the best of luck!
