The latest built of Samsungs Official Update called NG8 don't support towelroot anymore. No one knows why. Maybe some changes in the Kernel.

I would buy a 9505 or when it's possible for you a 9506, there is less support on XDA, that's right, but you got an Snapdragon 800 and the faster LTE, so really close to the Galaxy S5.
So if you don't want to flash thousands of custom ROM, this will be your best choice.

Well this is because Samsung patched the loophole that was being exploited by geohot.
They knew about the loophole as stated by them.on www.samsungknox.com and they clearly stated that Knox 2.0 shall stop that exploit.
They did it.
That is why NG8, the latest official firmware, has knox 2.0 and does not support towelroot anymore.
