Hello, I have tried both ways to root my Galaxy S5 and when I try and update the firmware via my old way using my phone, it says my phone has been altered. I attempted to use a root only app and i was prompted i needed a rooted phone to use it. 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
