Now, I want to root the device but In my device the model is only :SM -G900. nothing is written after G900. for that i cant find the version from internet for rooting the device. At last i installed an apps name CPU-Z. In here the model number is showing SM -G900 (k3gduosctc).
But still i can't find the right version to root the device.

You'd need to look at the Sticker behind the battery for determination of the correct Device Model Number. Sometimes the information you see in Settings > About is not accurate. The apps you'd use may get mislaid.

Having said that Since you bought in China, it is likely to either SM-G900I (for Asia Market) or SM-G900K/L/S (Korea Market). My Money would be on SM-G900I. Given that the device is so new, we do not have sub forum for this specific variant yet. But depending on which carrier you are using or planning to use, here are the links to Relevant forums. Sprint Galaxy S5, Verizon Galaxy S5, T-Mobile Galaxy S5, AT&T Galaxy S5

To your question on Root, here's a nice thread for Sprint S5. It gives you a general Idea. But understandably the specifics would depends on your Model.

You may also use Android Hardware Info app or any other Device info apps that look at the hardware to determine Model Number.

Just in addition what Perseus71 already wrote:

Chainfire has already created CF-AutoRoot for various S5 variants.
This is IMO the easiest way to root your device. I have done this with my SM-G900F too.

But first do what Perseus71 has suggested ... you should be sure what exact model of the S5 you have.
Device: SGS5 (SM-G900F)
ROM: AllianceROM v5.3
Kernel: Stock XXU1ANG7 kernel
Recovery: PhilZ-touch CWM recovery
Modem: XXU1ANG7
If you have any question about or any issue with your SGS2, just ask in the New members friendly Q&A thread,
... for your SGS5, just ask in the Noob friendly Galaxy S5 All in one support thread.
...
If you need general help/assistance, please go to XDA Assist.

what is Perseus71.I told that the model is showing only SM-G900 nothing else.i know there is various model like SM-G900F,SM-G900L etc but my s5 is only showing SM-G900 nothing else.thats why i asked the question.The only thing i can see the model SM-G900(k3gduosctc) when i use cpu-z apps. I can't find this SM-G900(k3gduosctc) model any where...

Hi nissan0808,

I am sorry to inform you that the "UNIVERSAL5410" is commonly used on fake Galaxy devices ( Mostly S4 ). You can make sure by entering your IMEI here: IMEI Analysis. Check under the IMEI Validity Assessment.

Find it by dailing *#06#

This doesn't necessarily mean that you can't root the device, you can try the following tool:

Framaroot

Cheers!
