Just wondering if anyone would prefer one over the other IFF CF ends up making a Auto-Root for the S5/Active.

The exploit towelroot uses to gain root access is already patched (fixed), so towelroot won't last as long as CF-Auto-Root does.

Despite that most (if not all) will favor towelroot for not triggering KNOX (knox on wood).
