Default [UPDATE] Galaxy S5 Developer edition ROOT & RECOVERY

Guys I can confirm the twrp klte recovery .tar file available on twrp's website works for the Verizon GS5 development edition phone. I am rooted as well

**This thread is aimed at folks who have already acquired the developer phone and need a little guidance and/or concrete evidence that is easy to find regarding how they should proceed with recovery and root. The other threads were geared towards linking folks to a .com site for purchase and the pros and cons of the dev edition.

Did you flash TWRP then install the Superuser zip in order to gain root?

Download the superuser.zip file of your choice (I used SuperSu). Flash TWRP Klte recovery image using ODIN.... Bootloader is unlocked out of the box. Then flash superuser zip via TWRP

I have the DevS4... so identical process. But DevS4 can also use saferoot and preserve stock recovery

How did you guys activate the phone on your verizon account? Did you take it to them or do you just swap sim card?

I activated online and typed in the IMEI and the serial# of the SIM card that was in the phone.

BTW: it's working fine, here are the files I used:

1. Drivers: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2038555
2. Odin: http://samsung-updates.com/Odin307.zip
3. TWRP: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/klte
4. Root: http://download.chainfire.eu/396/SuperSU/

Hey I'm very happy that you posted this thread up. I got my s5 Developer Edition a couple of days ago and it been sitting until someone could confirm this. With that being said.
What should us owners of the S5 Developer Edition do next? How could we retain a factory img of our current firmware (without losing unlocked bootlaoder status) since there is no factory image available directly from Samsung or verizon. Also, could we flash roms from other devices such as 900f, 900t, etc.... ?
