TBS group for O1.

Not sure how to deprotect O5, leaving other groups intact.

Why do you need the other groups to stay intact?

On methylation they will also react.

You can demethylate the O5 acetal in the presence of a methyl ether at O4 (your numbering).

The most straightforward strategy I see is to protect O1-3 (O5 is already protected as an acetal), methylate O4, then remove all protecting groups.
