Switch off your phone and press Volume up + Home + Power to Download mode. Connect your phone to PC via USB cable, then Odin should detect your phone. Now press ‘Start’ to flash TWRP to your phone.

Power off your phone.

3) Install Cyanogenmod 14.1 and GAPPS 7.1

Download Cyanogenmod(CM) 14.1 from: http://mirror41.download.highonandroid.com/download/CM14.1/GalaxyS5/
Download GAPPS 7.1 from: http://opengapps.org/

NB: I have tried the recommended version of GAPPS, e.g. ‘stock’ but it won’t work in my phone and gives me “Unfortunately, Google Play Services has stopped “ error. When I switched to the minimal version, e.g. ‘pico’, it works fine.

Copy downloaded GAPPS and Cyanogenmod zip files into your phone’s SD card.

Now press Volume up + Home + Power to enter TWRP screen. Then Wipe your phone and install from Cyanogenmod and GAPPS zip files.

Restart your phone and it’s ready to use!
