Is there a way too downgrade to an older build in order to use towel root?

Of course you can downgrade it to stock rom and try towelroot again. You can check sammobile.com for firmwares.

For those of you who dont know, updating your s5 at&t variant will not allow root apps to root the phone. So if you have updated your s5 at all, then you are going to have to not allow the phone to update and wait for a new exploit to be found, continue to go to towelroots site and if you see a new version name or number, then download it and see if it works. Good luck.

I am new to android, please explain what rooting my ph means, and benefits. Samsung GALAXY s5 G900A.

If you are new to Android I would'nt suggest rooting for you because this is always a risky thing if you don't do it properly. On the otherside rooting will give you root access of your s5, along with proper functioning of hundreds of apps which require root permission.
You can install wonderful apps like greenify which will improve your phones performance to an unbelievable extend.

SuperSu said it disabled KNOX and then said it failed & reboot.. Now what?

Try the steps again and if it's the same, wait for the towelroot update. The issue you are facing may be because of the recent firmware update which removed the ability to root using towelroot.
