You cannot root if you took OTA to OE1 or the newer OG5. Same goes for if you bought the phone on that version. Return for a try at a different firmware, or get a different phone. Assuming you just got it.

Any way to downgrade to N12 from OG5 (maybe through Odin...)?

Also waiting for the new Nexus ������. I actually just took back my 2014 Nexus 6 to Verizon after 2 weeks. 32 gbs just wasn't enough with Multi rom (so fun) and Google is/was all out of the 64. Might as well wait for Huawei's 2015 model.

Same boat, I went out and got the Nexus 6 but it was just too big so I returned it, waiting for the new 5 Nexus to come out.

My note is verizon (sm-n900v) is running on android 5.0, and its kernel version is 3.4.0
I have tried using towelroot to root my phone but it said that my device is not supported; I am wondering what other possible ways there are to root my phone.

This thread is for the Galaxy S5. Go to your respective forum by typing to find device at the top of any XDA dev page, then read the stickies at the top.
