Hi,

I had my S5 rooted after I bought it.

When I updated to the latest firmware (using KIES as OTA was not working) I lost root.

CF autoroot won't root my phone anymore. How can I get root back?

Thanks

What I did!

Bought S5. Rooted with CF autoroot.

On 24.5. a firmware update was available from Samsung.
Installation OTA not possible due to root.

Samsung firmware updated using KIES.

After update root was gone.

Odin and CF autoroot fails now:
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> recovery.img
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/003> FAIL! (Auth)

Any ideas?
The button in Odin does not go to yellow as mentioned.

I got it to work again.

-> I removed the SDCARD and disabled the Reactivation Lock.
