Everything looks like it is working on the recovery. I am going to do a few more test tonight and then I will release it for some testing.

I am a little out of the discussion of this thread but I didn't find any thread open for this model and decided to write here.
I was wondering if the tool that was developed to SIM unlock any Samsung Sprint phone can unlock the Sprint S5 Sport.
This is the link of the thread with the tool that was made public some days ago: http://forum.xda-developers.com/spri...print-t2928250
Can anyone try and confirm that this tool unlocks the Sprint Samsung S5 Sport, because I want to purchase one from eBay but have to be sure it will work.

Thanks in advance!

newbie
i am very new to the rooting method and this will be my first phone rooted i would just like for a clear and easy guide i can maybe read up that will give beginner like myself more information before rooting. i have always had android/Samsung phones and have heard of rooting being called jail broken as well. but am having a hard time finding something that will teach me the fundamental knowledge of rooting. i own the GS5 sport and was taken to this thread but could use some more background knowledge before choosing to root my phone (sorry if TL;DR) a lot of terms thrown here were not very familiar and was hoping i can get pointed into the right direction for knowledge.

I'm thinking no since it specifically states that the unlock does not work with carriers in the USA. Not sure why it is posted in the Sprint forum but maybe I'm missing something.

A simple Google search will start you on the right track. Just type in "what is rooting a phone" and look for an article on Lifehacker. It is about as basic of explanation as one can get. For a more in-depth explanation there is a lot of info here on XDA.

If you are looking for a tutorial to root the S5 Sport then check out mine stickied at the top of the General section.
