When I went in to use towelroot, after clicking "make it ra1n" I was prompted "you should have root, no reboot required". Is my phone rooted and how do I know if it is and how do i use different roms on my phone?
Do you have a G900F or a different model? To flash customs roms you don`t need root as these roms are pre rooted allready. You only need to flash a custom recovery so you can flash these roms and get root anyway
