No, you don't have root/unlock for ATT S5.
But...... hmmmm...

**** DO NOT POST IN THAT THREAD. IT IS A DEVELOPERS-ONLY THREAD. DON'T BE A DORK AND POST IN IT.
Pretty exciting. I am not a dev. so I dont really know how to distinguish between what exactly is going on, but a little progress and excitement is always good for the community. Not to mention the respect and bounty these devs will get once something major actually does happen.

At the moment it's still not possible, but the tool apparently gives them a huge leap forward in development towards this goal.
They've been looking for something like this for a few years now I believe.
I'm not a dev, don't pretend to be one. The extent of my "development" is writing a few scripts. lol. So remember that I may be misunderstanding some things here.

There are a bunch of files attached to the thread.
But none of us should bother downloading them because you have to be an ultra-dev to know how to use them.
My understanding i that this is the SDK for the SoC on the S5 and other phones. It includes a qualcomm dev signing cert but I'm almost 100% certain that no production phone from AT&T will accept BL's signed by the qc dev cert (or someone would have used it to sign one of the unlocked BL's by now plus if that were the case my guess is qc would be freaking out and sending takedown notices by now). So basically if Samsung or AT&T were to provide the signing key or somehow we were to brute force it(very unlikely) we would now be able to easily sign packages for the phone. So while helpful, without the signing keys it doesn't really do anything except provide more insight into how the whole secure boot process works.

Make sure you read and understand the "PINNED" threads in the "General" and "Q & A" sections of the AT&T S4 forum BEFORE you ask for help. Use the forum's "search" function to find posts with additional information. You should not expect others to help you if you haven't tried to help yourself first. Also, read, understand, and follow the "XDA" rules.
