So the s5 community got root the other day and the Dev says that it should work on other phones with kernels before June 3 2014 his Knox status also reads 0x0 so I guess his warranty is still in tact..... So anyone wanna try this on our phone and see if it passes through http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2783157

I could be wrong, but I remember reading some S3 users stating it didn't work. It does work on the ATT S4 but ONLY on the NEWEST NC1 firmware update that came out (4.4.2) but did NOT work on the previous NB1 firmware (also 4.4.2).

It is worth a try as it will NOT brick your phone. If it doesn't work it will just let you know it is not rooted.
