Hi All,

since friday a YouTube video is out showing how to root the SM-G800F in only 2 minutes.
You can find the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XpGTwifH50
You will find all needed downloads in the information section of the video: Odin, CainFire SM-G800F root, Samsung USB Driver.
You don't need to re-configure your device afterwards.

I just tried it and it works perfectly without reinstalling the rom or anything else. Just the typical Odin stuff, some clicks and it's done. Everything stays as it was before, you only get root.

Enjoy!

IMPORTANT: it's obviously only for the SM-G800F!

It would have been nice if you mentioned who created this rooting method here as well as on youtube. You say Chainfire, but he officially does not support SM-G800F. Check http://autoroot.chainfire.eu

sure? check out the file name, cf-auto-root-sm_g800f-kminilte-xxu1ang7.*tar.md5 sounds like a chainfire file to me or possibliy it's a modification by ?kminilite??
sorry, I'm not a developer and also not in the "scene", I'm just an Android enthusiastic and modder and want to help here. to be honest, I have no idea if it is from CF itself or the guys from xda-root.com or both. If this is soo important to you, you have to find out the 100% correct answer by yourself or some other supporter

Thanks to you guys!

It is very bad manners to claim someone else's work as your own. Whether it be you or that website.

so you didnt created anything, but only tried one's work with your own device - we are all thankful.

Second, we dont have any prove that Chainfire already know that before.

One way or another, thank you polyconvex to point it out

It is a bit more than trying a prepackaged binary on a new device. That won't work at all. If you don't believe me then download any file you like from chainfire's website and try to use it on SM-G800F. The trick is to modify enough of that original code to work on the new device. That modification is my own work, which I published on the other thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...55&postcount=4, without any permission to redistribute it. A big part of the file is originally from chainfire, another big part is from Samsung itself, the modification to combine it all in a way that it works on SM-G800F is mine. The name 'kminilte' refers to the SoC chip on the phone as shown by the kernel.

In any case Chainfire now has his own version of autoroot for each S5 Mini variant in the market. Mine only works on SM-G800F not on other variants. My file has the md5 sum dc6517140efa4058d1f67c8e1784efe7 and Chainfire's files have different md5 sums as listed on his website.

Flash counter?
I'm new to the Samsung modding scene, so excuse me if my question is outdated.

But are the flash counter / yellow triangle still a problem on Samsung devices? Do I need to take any preliminary measures, to ensure that I can revert to stock and not give away that I have had it flashed (for warranty cases)?
