    If this is the wrong forum, please direct me to the right one.

    I had a Samsung Galaxy S2 that was happily running cyanogenmod for years. However, I just got a Galaxy S5 (T-Mobile version), and I'm having a terrible time installing cyanogenmod or even rooting it. First I successfully rooted it using this method. Then I was unsuccessful installing cyanogenmod using this method. Then I bricked my device and had to reinstall the original firmware. Now I can't root it by the method that worked the first time. All I can think is I installed a different baseband version, but I don't know what the original one was. Can someone please help me?
