I rooted my S3 and S4, but im having a hard time making heads or trails of the s5. Is there no solution to root and rom my version?

I've spent the past two hours looking for a root method for the vzw gs5 and it seems that we are waiting for someone to find an exploit to unlock the bootloader.

Ha. I don't know how you are searching but there are several roots available. Your search missed an entire Verizon S5 sub-forum. With a how to root sticky thread at the top of the forum.

The "towel root" by Geohot is recommened for the 900V as the poster above suggested.

The Verizon bootloader is locked unlike most other carriers. So most are using Safestrap to cope with the locked bootloader and load a custom ROM.
