    In this guide you will learn how to root Samsung Galaxy S5.

    Before you begin, be warned that performing this process and rooting your device will void your WARRANTY.

    Use at your own risk. This will not remove or delete anything from your phone. Using this root increases your flash counter and trips the KNOX warranty flag!

    Before proceeding, please check your device model by going into: Settings -> About device -> Model number. If your device model is not listed, please do not try to root, because will not work and may even brick your device.

    Steps:

    1. First step you need to perform is to Download and unzip the CF-Auto-Root-....zip file corresponding to your model number, as advised above.

    IMPORTANT
    : If you end up with a recovery.img and cache.img file, you've extracted twice. You need to end up with a .tar.md5 file - don't extract that one

    2. The second step is to disconnect your phone from your computer and perform these operations:

    a) Start Odin3-vX.X.exe ( http://goo.gl/k0flCX )
    b) Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5
    c) Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press a button to continue, press the listed button, or run adb reboot download command)

    3. Now connect the phone to your computer and do the following:
    a) Make sure Repartition is NOT checked
    b) Click the Start button
    c) Wait for Android to boot

    4. You are done. Enjoy your rooted device.
