I really do enjoy this rom. Love the fact that I can install just what I need and no other bloatware.
I have a couple questions. Hopefully someone can help.
I came off of the ncg build. Flashed nk2 build with ncg kernel thru Odin. I then flashed extreme syndicate v5 thru ss. Went into download mode and flashed the OA8 kernel thru odin. Now I cannot boot into recovery in ss. When I try to boot into recovery, the phone goes into a somewhat download mode with the "energy saver" logo. It runs thru some files and reboots into the rom. Any advice on getting into safestrap?
To get back into Safestrap from a lollipop ROM, you must flash a non-lollipop kernel FIRST (like NK2 kernel). Also make sure Safestrap is indeed installed. Since it already seems you understand how to use ODIN, I would recommend you just stick with that method.
If you're interested in faster methods which don't require a computer, do more research around the general S5 Verizon forum and look for SS flashable kernels. Do your research. Stay safe
