Default CF-Auto-Root for SM-G900T (T-Mobile US)

@Chainfire has released his CF-Auto-Root for the SM-G900T (T-Mobile US) Galaxy S 5.

I take no credit whatsoever for this, just posting a link to his main thread for all to see.

Please go and thank Chainfire!

With this root accomplished, we can confirm that the T-Mobile bootloader is UNLOCKED.

ROMS/Kernels/Recovery will soon follow from our awesome devs here on XDA.

Link to CF-Auto-Root Main Thread(Multi-variants)


THIS WILL TRIP KNOX COUNTER TO 0x1

ODIN Instructions - Copied from Main CF thread
Quote:
Follow these instructions to the letter. Do not touch any buttons or checkboxes that are not listed below to touch!

- Download and unzip the CF-Auto-Root-....zip file (see posts below this one)
- If you end up with a recovery.img and cache.img file, you've extracted twice. You need to end up with a .tar.md5 file - don't extract that one
- (USB) Disconnect your phone from your computer
- Start Odin3-vX.X.exe
- Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5
- Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press a button to continue, press the listed button, or run adb reboot download command)
- (USB) Connect the phone to your computer
- Make sure Repartition is NOT checked
- Click the Start button
- Wait for Android to boot
- Done (if it took you more than 30 seconds, you need practise!)

NOTE: Sometimes the device does *not* boot into recovery mode and root your device. Just do the entire procedure again if this happens. If it still will not install root and such, make sure that in Odin "Auto Reboot" is not checked. Then after flashing, pull the battery, and boot with VolUp+Home+Power button to boot into recovery manually. This will start the install process.

New to Samsung? Unfamiliar with Odin? Think all the above is a hassle? Get used to it. It's very simple, and us Samsung folk use Odin (or Mobile ODIN ) for everything! It's so very very convenient once you get used to it. Notice the 30 second comment above? For experienced users, the entire process indeed takes only 30 seconds!

Other models

CF-Auto-Root is not yet available for all models - one stock firmwares for these models become available, let me know, and I'll make the corresponding CF-Auto-Roots.

Good stuff, downloaded the zip, just waiting for my device to get here....we have to run the update the Kies first, right? Also, any word about CWM or TWRP? They've already made recoveries for the international versions.

You can run the auto-root on both the updated version from kies, or straight outta the box.

I am trying to get in touch with the developers about TWRP and CWM, but I am sure they are busy trying to get all variants working.

I wouldn't Odin the international TWRP or CWM though. I would wait for a version for us.

For sure, I don't want to brick the damn thing. Luckily I've been here before!

I wouldn't count on it. at least the Triangle away...Knox still hasn't been figured out for previous devices on how to reset it, so I wouldn't count on it for this device. As for getting root without tripping knox, Maybe kingo will update, or root-de-la-vega....who knows at this point.

There basically won't be a way of resetting Knox.
Because of it being more a hardware flag, once it is tripped it is not reversible.
There might eventually be a way to do it without tripping it, but I wouldn't expect that for a while.
