I want to get a Galaxy S5 but I want to hold off on rooting it for a little while so I can avoid having any problems with the warranty if something goes wrong since most defects will show up early on if they are present. I want to be able to use the wifi tethering on a trip for labor day weekend. What are the best options on this phone with the latest updates? I don't know what software version will be on it when I get it. I have used foxfi in the past before I rooted my current droid RAZR MAXX. A lot of these apps don't always work depending on phone, software version, and carrier.
Is there any easy way to undo this if I have any problems with the phone? I've rooted all my previous phones but I prefer to wait a few weeks before doing anything irreversible just in case I run into any hardware failures and need to get the phone replaced. I do want to get this done as soon as possible, the software update notification is getting really annoying but I don't want to void my warranty.
download an official firmware to be flashed with Odin, doing this will remove all traces of root and won't trigger knox either, you then have your warranty back, bare in mind that to use towel root you must be on an older firmware, think it's may or earlier, you can check your version under settings about phone.
