    Hi all I am hoping that I can get an answer please. I have a Samsung g870a S5 Active I really need to put a custom rom on the phone and get rid of the AT&T software. I want to use the cm13 klite version for the S5 but I need to know if it works. so I do not brick the phone. From what I can tell there is no reason it should not, has anyone tried on this model and can tell me it works of if the stable cm 12.1 will work PLEASE PLEASE. phone is rooted and ready for whatever you all can sugest.

    Afraid it won't work. AT&T locks the bootloader on the S5 Active and most all their Samsung phones from the S4 up. CM is AOSP and at the most you could maybe flash a Touchwiz based ROM with Flashfire or Safestrap using a ROM slot.
    I have one that I experiment on that I have flashed the 5.0 deodexed stock, installed Xposed and a few modules, trimmed some of the bloat but not much else.

    Please share. If you have found a method to unlock the bootloader on AT&T devices,you can collect the bounty at XDA.
