I have a SCH-I435 I am no longer with Verizon and have not received any updates since Nov. 2014 . I have heard there is a upgrade from 4.4.2 into a 5.0 . I'm not very up to date on all the different terms. Can someone please give me step by step instructions . Also my phone has been rooted.

Samsung has not released an official update to lollipop 5.0.

You can flash your phone to a custom ROM that is newer than what you have now. You can get 5.0 or newer via custom ROMs such as Cyanogenmod, AOKP, PAC rom. I will post steps in how to this later in 5 minutes.

Do you have ClockWorkMod Recovery installed? (CWM) You'll need a custom recovery to flash the Custom ROM.

Edit: After doing some searching. I couldn't find any Custom ROMs for this phone. I think you are stuck on 4.4.2.

The easiest way is to borrow someone's Verizon SIM card and update it, then return the SIM card. Both AT&T and Verizon stop allowing updates once you leave their service.

An alternative is to find an offical ROM on XDA-Developer's website and flash it with their instructions using Samsung ODIN software.

I had a full sized SCH-I545 (S4). Either you tripped Knox and it won't let you update, or the Root you used disabled updates so you wouldn't brick your phone. What I did was I plugged it into my PC and used a ROM program to flash the stock rom back on. If that does not work, try using KIES (You might have to try 2 or 3 to see which works with your phone. Mine used KIES 2). It is the iTunes of SAMSUNG in a way.
