Hi Guys,

I have been searching all around to find a way to root my Samsung S5 "Prime" model G906S (Korean SK Telecom Unlocked).

Kernel :
3.10.0-1916255

Is there a way as of today to do so?

Thanks for your replies,

Best,

You can try Towelroot from here http://towelroot.com/. Just open this site on the phone and hit the Lambda. If its not compatible no harm can be done.

Best,

I've tried towelroot and failed, too.
And I've also tried S5 root with no luck. Almost got my phone bricked.

That root method works! But it's not for free. It costs about US$8. and definitely breaks the warranty.
Also It's not easy to pay if you dont live in China.
