Hi all.

I've had my S5 for a few weeks now and I want to root it, is it possible to do so without losing all my stuff that is already on it?

Root is patching you current firmware without altering your current phone state.
if rooting goes well you won't lose anything.

If you fear, use Helium backup for apps and app data,

and also manually backup your internal storage to your computer in case anything goes wrong.
