Default To those working on a G9000A root.

I noticed that the AT&T mobile locate app asks you for permission to use elevated(root) privellages.

Samsung has made the source code for the AT&T variant of the S5 available to all, so maybe you can find some more info there.

Excuse me if this information is useless, but if it ends up helping with the root, you owe me a beer and a pizza with that $12k

You should post that in the AT&T thread or the bounty thread located in the Verizon s5 forum.

The elevated privileges are related to authorizing the app as a device administrator. This has nothing to do with gaining root as far as I know.
