Download Android 5.1 Gapps (DO NOT USE older Gapp as you will FC!!!)
Sorry, not available for AT&T or Verizon S5 as they have locked bootloaders, try switching carriers?
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install SuperSU and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system. For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)
