[Q] Failure rooting galaxy s5 SM-G900F
Hoping someone can help me I have followed the guide to root my s5 device exactly several times and it fails everytime. USB Debugging is enabled, USB Drivers are installed and Kies isnt installed on my pc, this is guide i followed:
Step 1: Download CF-Auto-Root package and Odin v3.09. Then, extract the files to the computer.
Step 2: Boot the Galaxy S5 in Download mode by pressing and holding down the Volume Down, Home and Power buttons together. When a warning screen is displayed, press the Volume Up button to enter Download mode.
Step 3: Now, run Odin3 v3.09.exe as an Administrator and then connect the Galaxy S5 to the PC via USB cable. If connected successfully, a message showing “Added!!” will appear in Odin’s message box, if not, try another USB port. If the issue persists, try reinstalling the USB driver.
Step 4: Click on the AP button, and select the CF-Auto-Root file (a .tar.md5 file), which was extracted in Step 1.
Step 5: In Odin, make sure that the “Auto Reboot” and “F. Reset Time” options are checked while “repartition” is unchecked.
Step 6: Click on the Start button in Odin to begin the flashing process.
Step 7: After the process is complete, the Galaxy S5 will restart and a PASS message with green background will appear in the left-most box at the top of Odin.
