Default [Q] Clockwork Mod

I've got a Tmo GS5 that I've rooted, but am still running the stock rom. I see that the clockwork mod website lists some GS5 stuff, but the actual app won't recognize my phone. It also doesn't have it in the list for me to select, so I'm left with "Unsupported Device". Is the GS5 not supported yet? Is this normal?

I don't think I have actually heard of anyone running clockwork mod on the GS5 - TWRP seems to be doing just fine though, I'm running

Philz recovery is working as well. Just do a google search for it.

I haven't used CWM in some time, but I strongly suspect that the poster above is correct. That it may simply be that CWM doesn't fully support the S5 at this time. You can do a forum search for the CWM support thread and no doubt find more information about the status there.

TWRP does support the S5 properly.. well maybe not encryption, but everything else. And lots of posters have stated that Philz is working fine on the S5 as well.
