Default Samsung Galaxy S5 Active

I can confirm that this worked to root the S5 Active. I had issues with Google services not functioning properly, but once I installed SuperSU, and it disabled Knox, everything seemed to be working fine again. Based on comments from others, I have not enabled ultra power save mode.

How did you go about installing SuperSU, and disabling Knox?

UPDATE: I see in his thread about SuperSU. Does it automatically disable Knox? Or do I have to go about Titanium Backup and disable all the appropriate apps?

SuperSU automatically prompts and asks if you want to disable Knox. The first time I ran it, it hung. Rebooted, and ran again, and it disabled right away. Was golden after that point.

V2 didn't work for me. Just tried V1 and it worked with no issue. Awesome! Just got the S5 today as well.
