Default I'm throwing a party and you should come **GS5 ROOT THREAD**

Don't worry, you don't have to leave your house

When: 10 AM PDT tomorrow(6/15/14)
Where: In this thread, in #towelroot on freenode, and at towelroot.com
Software live at https://towelroot.com RIGHT NOW!

Please report bugs to my gmail geohot+towelroot or in this thread.
New version will be released later today hopefully fixing them.

Definitely invited: AT&T GS5, Verizon GS5, GS4 Active, Nexus 5
May have some troubles at the door but invited: AT&T/Verizon Note 3
Possibly invited: Every Android phone with a kernel build date < Jun 3

Stay tuned right here for updates. I'm coming for that bounty.

v3 is live! More support. Reboot on your own time. modstrings

What's a modstring?
A way to support your obscure phone!
Since I don't own every phone, you can fix it yourself
http://towelroot.com/modstrings.html
And modstrings have their first success!
On LG L34C use "1337 0 0 0 4 0"
Eventually the server will push these if people find enough

Still no real HTC/Moto support from phones without writable system.
If someone is willing to give me one of these phones for testing I'll add good support.
Same deal for Exynos.

Killed bugs:
Note 3 with kernel 3.4.0-722276 is FIXED! Redownload.
Fixed Note 3 with kernel 3.4.0-636608 thanks to analytics.
Download failed issue should be fixed.
Fixed Sprint Note 3 with kernel 3.4.0-951486
Nexus 5 v2 issue fixed

Known bugs:
Note 3 with kernel 3.4.0-257432 doesn't seem to work. Updating to 722276 should fix.
Newest Moto and HTC don't currently work because /system is write protected.
Detected as Andr.Exploit.Ratc by some virus scanners. It is an Android exploit. Will not fix.

Does it trip KNOX?
Most probably not. My phone says "KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0", but no promises.

What's your paypal?
geohot@gmail.com if the tool works for you.
I also have a bitcoin: 1DFhk6fs26AafaNiQyEgdGM7NSaLzVN2VE

What's the hash of the apk file?
towelroot.com has https now!
People having DNS issues should clear their cache.

Will this brick my phone?
Most probably not. towelroot alone hasn't bricked a phone yet.
The stupid decisions you make once you have root are all your own however.

I rooted, what's next?
