Now test your download for malware or any virus, and make sure that your files are cleaned and not have any virus or malware in them. (You can do it by Odin, If you don’t have then download it from Softpedia)

Now off your Galaxy S5 and SM-G900V and also disconnect it from your computer or laptop.

Open ODIN and click the AP or PDA and go to the extracted file destination.

Now hold press these buttons and by same order, Volume Down + Home + Power and hold down till you get warning on the screen. Now press volume up button to continue; now the screen will tell you that you are in Odin mode.

Com number can be different, like 1, 2,3,4,5,7 etc, so once you see the com port number you can proceed.
