you can do that, yes. kingo root (a windows program) also works.


run superuser, and ifit gets stuck disabling KNOX just reboot phone and try again.

I lucked in.
My S5 from Voda came with the older firmware and I was able to gain root with Towelroot.
That was even after letting it download updates (made the same mistake with my Transformer but Towel didn't work with it).
The guy in Voda said their phones are no longer carrier locked is that true?

no one carrier locks anymore except on iphones, but you've still got a variety of software locks - apps and widgets you cant delete, locked down features due to the CSC, etc.


when you no longer care about the warranty or leave voda, just move to a custom rom or a generic, debranded EU/UK one.

Has anyone got call recording working on their S5?
I have tried Wanam Xposed and TWcallRecorder, but without any success.
Stock rooted 4.4.2 here?
