I believe I heard something close to "TM1".

They're resetting, preparing for restarting the count at T-5 minutes.

Looks like they'll try again soon?

LOX and LH2 recycling, igniters reset.

Could anyone explain to me what this means exactly?

How do you reset igniters?  (I don't know what kind the engine uses)

I think they said the centre CBC "stayed safe", but I'm not sure.

Presumably that means it failed to arm, resulting in the hold.

I saw a huge ball of flame come out of the flare stack right after the hold was called, is there a chance this may have been related to what cause the hold, or an after-effect?

The igniters weren't quite "reset" but they were armed and then disarmed after the hold.

Something about "solid motor safe and arm to safe". 

Solid motor?
