Default [Q] Rooting?

I recently purchased a new Samsung Galaxy S5 from India. I would like to know if I can root it, if yes, how? And what are the risks of rooting it? And what to do after rooting!

Thanks in advance.

Of course you can root it.
The risk is loosing your warranty, which is unavoidable. If you can't live without warranty, then don't.

There is alot of things you can do with root.

I personally think it's a bad idea too root SM-G900H, since the other version can be rooted without loosing warranty.

Check what is the model no. and use towelroot to root your s5 without tripping KNOX... Safest method...
