I want to build a very friendly help for the your ATT Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900A. Well, during the period of you need think of me? No, no, please don’t thank me, it’s XDA senior member muniz_ri’s work.

You need a rooted G900AUCU4BOF2 (hereafter referred to as OF2) update? OK, there is a rooted G900AUCU4BOF2 rom, which is flashable ZIP firmware file. At this point, you can flash it by using application called Flash Fire developed by super developer Chainfire .

However, you may need a little guide. Now and then we all need a little help, so there is a small favor for you. I hope you enjoy this guide, and that is my honor.

Flash this rooted OF2 rom, you need OA1’s boot loader.

You know, because we need to use Flash Fire, which requires root access, your ATT Galaxy S5 must be rooted. That’s mean, your phone is currently running on NCE Android 4.4 Kitkat firmware version since it can be rooted.

If your phone is running on NCE Android 4.4 Kitkat version, you can root it by using Towelroot.

In other words, to flash the latest OF2 rom with root, if your phone is running on other firmware version, like OA1, you can downgrade it to NCE Android 4.4 Kitkat version. However, if is already OF2, which is currently the latest update, and also OC4, you will can’t downgrade it, then you will can’t get root access now. You must understand it, this is an important first step.
