Thank you for the prompt reply. Now I understand that "..OC5" was the ending code of a Software Version prior to OG1, & therefore, my phone meets that requirement.
Now, my question is, do I need to find a way to install Android Version 5.1.1 before I can follow the procedure; is Android Ver. 5.1.1 a prerequisite to complete the instructions listed here?  If so, where can I find the instructions to upgrade Android Version?
Or, is it that the procedure explained by idone is going to upgrade my phone to 5.1.1?

"Re: How to root & Unlock S5 SM-G900P OG1 and above 5.1.1 for Global GSM"

To ask this another way, which of the following loquacious and overly detailed restatements of the title is correct in describing idone's procedure;
a) "how to root, Unlock for Global GSM, and upgrade to Android Ver. 5.1.1 any S5 SM-G900P phones that have Software Version OG1 (or newer) already installed," or
b) "how to root & Unlock for Global GSM any S5 SM-G900P phones that have Software Versions OG1 (or newer) and Android Versions 5.1.1 (or newer) already installed," or
c) neither?

"I like cooking, my family, and my pets," describes something very different without the commas; on the other hand, that may be precisely what was meant.

I see, I will create a new post with these kind of questions explained then, meanwhile I answer you here:

1. Do I need to find a way to install Android Version 5.1.1 before I can follow the procedure?
     No, OG1 is enough, by the way updating software on the phone is always suggested.
2. Is Android Ver. 5.1.1 a prerequisite to complete the instructions listed here?
     No, we cannot make post title longer because of a forum limit, although we would have wrote "How to root & Unlock S5 SM-G900P OG1 and above, Android version 5.1.1 included, for Global GSM".
3. If so, where can I find the instructions to upgrade Android Version?
     You don't need it but if you want to update a not rooted phone just do like that, enable Wi-Fi because the update is big, so you won't use your data plan, then: Go to Settings > System Update > Update Now.
4. Or, is it that the procedure explained by idone is going to upgrade my phone to 5.1.1?
     No, it won't, this procedure will give to your phone the root privileges only.

As last note, it is not your question but you will probably have this explained too: Software version is a combination of letters and number, you know if one is above the other just looking at the last 3 digits because those are released in a alphabetical order, for your S5 versions are NCB, ND2, NE5, NK4, OA6, OD3, OF6, OG1, OK4.
To write you an example, comparing NCB with ND2 is like this, first of all we have to compare the first digit, N = N, so we compare the second C > D, so ND2 is above NCB.

UPDATE:
I just wrote this topic: https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=147.0 hope it will help.

Yes it will,

please read this topic: https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=147.0
Required minimum rom for SM-G900P is OD3, so please update the phone to that version at least.
See you ;-)

The archives on Samfirmware goes from 5.0 to 6.0.1, just install the latest one, there isn't 5.1.1 in the list.
See you ;-)
