I just purchased a galaxy s5 sport and dont see a separate forum section for it.
Are roms made for the original galaxy s5 also usable with the galaxy s5 sport?

The Roms for Galaxy S5 wont work on your edition of phone, not even sure there is a restore file for your phone on sammobile, i dont think there is yet...sammobile.com is the site to get Odin file, see if they have it. Thats the first question u have to answer, dont wanna bork your phone with root and not have a way to get back to stock.

Chainfire was kind enough to create an Auto Root for the Sprint Galaxy S5 Sport.

Please go to his Thread and thank him appropriately. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1980683 the S5 Sport quote above is on page 46 of that thread.

I used Chainfire's auto root for the Sport yesterday and it worked perfectly. However, I tried flashing philz recovery for the s5 after rooting and all I get is a bootloop when trying to boot into recovery. I've done this multiple times on different devices without any problems so I'm assuming the regular s5 recovery is not compatible with the Sport. Does the auto root already include its own recovery or is there one that is compatible with the s5 sport? Or is there something I'm missing here?

Not sure if there is a custom recovery for your phone yet, just flash Chainfires CF-autoroot again, it won't harm anything, his root method flashes root with custom recovery, then in same instance flashes stock recovery back onto it. This will at least get u out of bootloop and not change anything u have done to phone. Go to sammobile.com and get the firmware for your phone. That will be pretty much your recovery until one is made for your phone, which will happen in due time.

I was able to get out of the bootloop. The phone works fine and is rooted. The only problem I was having was trying to get the recovery to work properly. So far I've only tried philz. Maybe TWRP would produce different results? I will try flashing later today and report back. Thanks for the response

I tried flashing TWRP today and I'm getting the same result. It gets stuck in a bootloop when trying to boot into recovery. It shows the "Recovery is not seandroid enforcing" message and then restarts and does the same thing. The only way to get out of it is to pull the battery then boot into download mode and flash the recovery again and let it reboot normally. After that the phone goes back to normal with root permission but without a working recovery.

So the Sprint Galaxy S5 recovery image is no good for the Galaxy S5 Sport? There seems to be two conflicting stories. :\
