    I flashed using Odin and I had F. Reset Time checked. I thought that's what that setting did..

    I didn't need to use triangle away. I reflashed the stock rom again and now i'm able to OTA to the most current rom. I think what happend was I accident;y unchecked that reset box. I made sure it was checked this time.

    All new Samsung devices have Knox and it's even being installed on older S4 when you do a software update. Once you have the firmware with Knox, there is an extra flag in download mode warranty void 0x0 which is changed to 0x1 if you flash an unsigned software, root, etc. Even if you flash another region official Rom with Odin it triggers it.
    So it seems if you use anything else than Kies to flash the warranty flag get triggered.
    Triangle away is only for older devices without Knox.
    I tried to install the US Rom on my Tab Pro 8.4, it made an ext4 error and I had to restore the original Rom with Kies, now my flag is 0x1.

    As far as I know, There is no way yet to reset Knox in S5. S5 is not supported by the latest Triangle Away. I have S5 and want to reset Knox.

    I have no problem with the fingerprint scanner. It works on the first swipe 99% of the time.

    You should register your fingerprint using different angles when swiping, so that S5 will recognize your fingerprint better. Mine works 99.5% or something like that..:D

    I was going to get the HTC One M8, but now I think I'll be getting this Galxay S5. I like the screen size which is a bit bigger and doesn't have the annoying digital back and home icons.

    I have just upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy S3, which was a great phone especially with the Android 4.3 update that improved speed and allowed apps/games to be stored (finally!) on external SD cards.

    However, it was time for a change as I was bored of the plastic design. Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S5, while a great phone undoubtedly in every other respect, still kept the same boring cheap plasticky look of the S3 and the same crappy rear-facing mono speaker so I decided to look at other options. I went with the HTC One M8 for its gorgeous looks and front facing speakers and I could not be happier. I even much prefer Sense 6.0 to TouchWiz. Audio quality was very important to me as I'm slightly deaf and the M8's sound is so clear and loud that I can even watch videos perfectly on it without needing to use headphones (obviously only useful at home). Even music sounds glorious. The metal design is just sublime too and the only let down so far is the camera which is OK but nothing special. However, that is the least important aspect of a smartphone for me.

    I hope that Samsung go with a metal design for the S6 or S7 and adopt better quality audio so that I have more choice of which phone to go for in a couple of years when I next upgrade. :D
