Galaxy S5 Root
FINALLY! Thank to XDA user GeoHot, we now have a new root method for AT&T SM-G900A or Verizon SM-G900V Galaxy S5. If you have been waiting for a long time for this root (as I have) don’t forget to donate to GeoHot for breaking the code and giving us root.
This will work on all Galaxy S5 models with Android 4.4.2 and does not trip KNOX. DOE NOT WORK WITH Android 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.0.2, 5.1, 5.1.1 Lollipop!
For those of you who’ve never installed a custom ROM before, here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to install a custom ROM on a rooted Galaxy S5.
Before we begin, you will need a rooted Galaxy S5 with CWM or TWRP recovery installed. If you have not done this, see How to Root Galaxy S5! first.
