Chainfire has a reputation of rooting all Samsung Galaxy S flagships before they even hit the markets. And the yet to be announced Galaxy S5 has received similar treatment using ODIN and CF-Auto-Root. This procedure is only applicable to the LTE-A model of the smartphone which goes by the model number SM-G900F, so not all variants are compatible. But that shouldn’t be much of a concern as international variants are still two weeks away from an official release.
We expect Chainfire to make this root method available for other variants of the Galaxy S5 just in time for the April 11 release. Rooting isn’t something which every Galaxy S5 owner would be looking to do, but it’s good to know that the option is available should the user choose to take that route. Hit the source link below to get detailed instructions on rooting your SM-G900F.
