Hi All,

Switching from a Verizon S4 to a T-Mobile S5 (switched because of Net Neutrality lobbying Verizon is doing). I found a thread on here about a root toolkit. It seemed a little confusing and I wasn't sure if it would work. What are my options for ways to root? On VZ I had to tarball an unlocked bootloader and download root binaries before installing a custom recovery. Is there something similar for T-Mobile devices?

The tmobile version has a unlocked bootloader. Very easy to root and install custom recovery. Its actually plastered all over the place. Weird you missed it. But here it is again. Very easy.

To get custom recovery just download TWRP Manager from Play, and install it.
