how to root galaxy s5Samsung Galaxy S5 was officially released with Android OS 4.4.2 KitKat but as of now in 2018, Samsung has released Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and using cf-auto root you can still root it by downloading the updated file. I have updated the complete post and you should have no issues with rooting your device.

Rooting your Android device gives you endless opportunities to get most out of your device, like Installing Custom Recovery, Custom ROM, Mods and Kernels which helps you to boost the performance of your device further.

Once rooted you can also install apps from Google Play Store that requires root access.

 

We most of the time use the CF-Root root method developed by the Chainfire, a recognized XDA developer, and contributor.

This method is a safe and perfect way to root the Android device and is this is almost available for all Samsung devices.

I will always recommend this method to my readers as this is the easiest and quick way to get rooted and additionally it does not requires rocket science knowledge and thus can also be called, OneClickRoot method as it uses Odin3 Samsung tool to flash the rooted kernel and install SuperSU on your Galaxy S5.

Things you should know before Rooting:

  •  Rooting your Galaxy S5 will void its manufacturer warranty, so think before you root your phone.
  • You’ll need a Windows-based PC.
  • Before Rooting, make sure you’ve installed USB drivers on your PC.
  • From Settings enable USB debugging. Don’t know? Learn Here
  • Make sure that you’ve got good enough battery charge on your phone, at least 50% is recommended.
  • Last but not the least proceed at your risk.

How to Root Samsung Galaxy S5 (2019 updated guide)

As I said earlier, this is a dedicated page for rooting almost any model of Samsung Galaxy S5, and I have published a step by step guide for each variant separately.

Links are given below to root for the particular variant of Samsung Galaxy S5.

When publishing this post, Galaxy S5 was officially released with Android 4.4 KitKat, but Samsung has released Android updates that include Android Lollipop and Marshmallow.

So before rooting your S5 make sure that you check Android version and Build number already installed on your phone by going to Settings > System > About device.

So before complaining that rooting does not work on your device make sure that you’ve confirmed Android version and build Id on your device settings and make sure that it matches with CF-auto root file.

Here is the list of all Galaxy S5 models that has been rooted and confirmed to be working on the particular version of Android.
