I think of rooting my SGS5 just to get Titanium Backup to work and to stop ads from spoiling my phone..

If I ROOT with CF autoroot and just stay on stock rom... Will I loose some of the features in the phone.. Like AllShare or Screen mirroring ?

Nope. It might have been the case for the s4 but allshare cast still works after root albeit it mad fidgety and crashes after a few minutes. I have no idea why you would use screen cast anyway with all the alternatives available. Anyway the answer is yes it'll still work. It did for me.

I don't think so. Root gives you a custom status, which prevents you from getting updates. You need to get them off of sammy and odin them to your device.

Hmmm... Okay. Thats a shame.. Then I could as well go all the way and use a custom rom.. ? In ODIN I need full wipe every time ? Or what?
If I use ect OMEGA ROM I will be able to flash with NO FULL WIPE in recovery...

I dont know what to choose.......
