Hi guys!

A few minuts ago I bought GLTools in the Play Store, I want better performance in a game. When I try to install it using recovery, the app gets stuck, nothing happens. See picture.

Device; Galaxy S5, rooted.

Is anyone familiar with this problem?

Thanks in advance

It's always a good idea to read the app description, especially when attempting to modify the /system partition.

Taken from the Play Store's app description:

"Failed on:
- Some Samsung devices (random). The lowest success rate is with SGN3 and SGS4 (thx to Knox). Installing a custom kernel can help, this problem is firmware-related. The same for Lenovo devices.
- Some games fail to work on devices with Mail GPU even with GLTools enabled. Adreno is supported much better."

If it didn't work well on the Note 3 or S4, the chances of it working on a newer Samsung device seems very low, especially since the problem cited is Knox, and the S5 has a newer, more robust version of it.
