I have been with T-Mobile forever on an original Galaxy S (Vibrant), unlocked, rooted, custom ROM, etc. (Since about 2008 I believe.)

Now about to the pull the trigger on Galaxy S5. However, I cannot imagine living without the following apps, all of which require root:

(1) Titanium Backup, to freeze/delete bloatware and back up multiple app versions.

(2) SystemPanel, to monitor resource usage by application over time.

(3) ROM Manager, to do daily image backup of phone.

(4) OS Monitor, to monitor processes, memory resources, and connections in real time by PID.

(5) Root Explorer to see all directories up to the root.

Will I be able to root the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S5 (Model SM-G900TZKATMB) and install the above-listed apps? Or has the technology progressed to be root-proof? And, if it is some expert's studied opinion that I will be able to root the S5, any idea how long it will take the whiz-kid developers to make it happen after the release this coming Friday? Also, I have forgotten now since I did this so long ago, but is there some relationship between the phone being unlocked and being able to root it? If I buy the phone from T-Mobile and they refuse to unlock it, does that have any effect on my abilty to root it?

Thank you to any and all who can help bring this old guy up to speed.
