Default [Q] Ok, we have root. How do we keep it?

Serious question. I've had root on my android since the day the Evo came out. This long wait for the S5 was killing me. Now that we have root, what precautions do we have to take to be sure we don't get an update that will kill it? I seem to remember a program called fota killer or something like that for the Evo. Do we need that (or something similar) for the S5?

The "thanks" button is great if I helped you. I always need more space on dropbox too. If you don't already have an account click http://db.tt/zaSKX4L to get one.

There is an option in SuperSU called Survival Mode. Check that Box and that should keep root for you even through and OTA.

Additionally find the software update service in Titanium Backup and freeze it.

Sometimes it is easier to tell people to use the search function, sometimes it is easier just to answer their question.

So, just out of curiosity, since you managed to add nothing useful to the thread, how many of those questions had to do with the ATT version of the S5 running KitKat and Towelroot'ed?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

He's shown a pattern of similarly useless posts in other threads.

On topic, freeze "AT&T Software update V44_2_1402_5_1"
