Looks like you found what you needed after I posted the information pertaining to it...funny how that worked out (but I guess you could've just kept "trying a lot of useless crap" & bricked your phone too). No other users were posting anything about successfully rooted GS5 Sports anywhere on XDA or anywhere PERIOD until I chimed in with my initial post to put prospective buyers & those considering returning theirs at ease that it was POSSIBLE. That was my only motivation...getting the word out.
I never promised tutorials nor have I ever provided them under this handle. I give insight that then gets the ball rolling for others with decent know-how...just check out the root thread for the Kyocera Torque as an example. If my input is not useful to you or anyone else, I'll further limit my input & continue to just perform dev on my own equipment, keep to myself & leave y'all to do whatever. Thanks for that, enjoy your rooted phone with hotspot & good luck the next time around.
