How to Root the AT&T and Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5




It is finally here! There is now a root method for the AT&T and Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5. This method has been long awaited by many users. There is still no way to unlock the bootloader, but this will allow for root access. Developer geohot has posted the method called TowelRoot.

This method will also NOT trip the Knox counter. Below I will include a list of devices that have reported to work with this method and not just the Galaxy S5.
