Thanks!

Nope. All versions are rootable.

Wink Please Help Noob Status
Like the title says I need help rooting my Verizon Galaxy S5 SM-G900V. I once rooted and flashed my old Galaxy Tab but it was forever ago. From what I am reading I cannot root my phone because I have already done the OTA update for Android 5.0. Please if someone could break down the steps Noob style for me so that I can root my phone that would be great thanks.

Damn, I just traded in my old S3 for a new S5. It's also on ANK2... and I can't find anything on it. I'm assuming there is no root for it yet? Should I take the OTA to lollipop?

Welp, took the OTA a few weeks ago and now Towelroot is saying my phone is incompatible. Can't even use the modstrings to root it, it just straight up says "nope". Any love here? I can't figure out what's going on.

I noticed it says in the thread "if you do not already have root..." to flash that specific firmware using odin. This method will work with ank2, correct? Just making sure that's what you were pointing me at.

Also thanks very much.

Right. That method works for all versions. If on NK2, just flash NCG kernel in ODIN, run towelroot, install SuperSU, flash NK2 kernel in ODIN, install SafeStrap, then follow the directions from there.
