Seven additional versions of Samsung Galaxy S5 added to list of devices that work with Chainfire’s root
The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 has already been rooted by Chainfire, and that was before the device was even launched. Well now it looks like seven more versions of the device have been added to that list, as announced by the developer today.
The versions included are as follows: SM-900H (International Exynos), SM-G900M (Middle and South America), SM-G900R4 (US Cellular), SM-G900T (T-Mobile US), SM-G900T1 (Metro PCS), SM-G900W8 (Canada) and SM-G900P (Sprint). To root the devices you’ll need to use the CF-Auto-Root tool, and as Chainfire noted on his Google+ post, rooting the device will break Knox warranty and increase the flash counter. Users may also have issues with Private mode.
You can head to the source link to download the files, and if you need help rooting the device you can head to the official discussion thread. Also remember that it’s very important that you use the root specific to your model number or else the root might brick your device.
