How to use root your samsung galaxy s5

Post by Joegates on Thu Aug 06, 2015 4:28 pm

With a root bounty of over $18,000 up for the taking,
developers were highly motivated to get the AT&T and
Verizon Wireless variants of the Samsung Galaxy S5
rooted. Legendary hacker George Hotz , aka Geohot, has
won the race and can now step up to claim his prize.
Hotz is not just your average developer, he's the guy
who brought jailbreak to the original iPhone and
unlocked the PlayStation 3. So when he hacks a device,
he does it in style. Not only does Hotz's exploit root the
G900A G900V S5 variants, it can root any Galaxy S5
and works on almost any Android device with a kernel
build date of June 3rd, 2014 or older.
Geohot's Towelroot uses an exploit found by fellow
hacker Pinkie Pie that causes the kernel to crash on
Linux-based systems such as Android. While the kernel
is in this crashed state, an app can ask for superuser
permissions and be granted them, even though root
isn't normally accessible to the current user. Towelroot
induces this kernel crash, gains superuser permissions
from Android, then uses them to copy over the requisite
files so that other apps can get superuser permissions
in the future.
What's more, the Towelroot exploit doesn't require a PC
or complicated ADB commands—it's an app that can be
sideloaded like any other. This makes Geohot's root
method the easiest one yet. And if user reports are to
be believed, the exploit doesn't even trip Samsung's
Knox . Nonetheless, you should still proceed as if your
warranty will be voided as soon as you root your
device.

How to root ya samsung galaxy s4

Step 1.
The process couldn't be easier—start by making sure
you have installation from "Unknown sources " enabled,
then just grab the TowelRoot apk from here and install.
We're rooting using a pretty genius method. It basically
exploits the kernel, which freezes Android, and while the
OS is sitting there panicking, it asks for root privileges
and Android gives them to it. Then, it copies over the
necessary root files and reboots the phone. But because
of the way this exploit functions, you'll see a nice scary
warning when installing TowelRoot—check that you
understand the risks, then hit Install anyway.
Step 2.
Now hit the make it ra1n button, and let the app do its
thing. It'll automatically reboot your device, and then
you'll be rooted!
Yes, it really is that easy. Really.
While TowelRoot will root your device, it will not install
a root manager, which is critical for keeping malicious
apps from gaining root access. Far and away the best
root manager is SuperSU from developer Chainfire.
Step 3.
Head to the Play Store to grab the app directly.
