[SM-G900F] How To Root Samsung Galaxy S5?

The new Samsung flaship Galaxy S5 has not even reached the market yet but we offer you a complete walkthrough how to root the SM-G900F version! And as you might (not) expect, it's easy as a pie.

The Galaxy S5, as we all know, is the new Samsung-powered flagship with a stunning performance of 2.5Ghz. And now, you are watching the complete tutorial to root this beast. It's easy. But before you start, ensure you have the European version (SM-G900F), otherwise you can brick your device and the tutorial will not work.


  • Rooting voids your warranty and increases your flash counter.
  • If you brick your device - don't throw it on me. It's all up to you (of course I'll give you a help hand if you ask me).

Requirements:

  • Enable USB debugging in developer options
  • Properly install the drivers
  • Optionaly backup your files and stuff
  • Odin (download newest version)


  1. DOWNLOAD the package and extract it.
  2. Switch off your SGS5 and get it to download mode. To do this, press Volume down + Home + Power button at once for a few seconds. If you can see the warning triangle, press the Volume Up.
  3. Open Odin and connect your device to PC using a USB cable. (Be sure to run Odin in administrator mode)
  4. If you can see the COM number with an ID box, you have successfully connected your device and you're ready to root it.
  5. Click on the PDA Button and select the package you downloaded in the first step. (CF-Auto-Root-klte-kltexx-smg900f.tar.md5)
  6. Check the PDA, Auto-reboot and F.reset time. Everything except these three boxes are unchecked.
  7. Click the start button.
  8. Pray.
  9. See the PASS message? Good job. You've successfully rooted your SGS5. You may reboot your device now.
