Default Please help me...

Hello!

I have a new GS5 t- mobile GM G900T Android Version 4.4.2.

I am a mac user (Mac OS X) 10.9.4.

I downloaded Towelroot, SupuerSU, WiFi Hotspot & Rootchecker. Everything worked great. I was rooted!

Later that day I noticed severe battery drainage and my G5 was warm to the touch. Concerned, I uninstalled everything and attempted to re-enstall all Apps.

Now when I download Towelroot it states that "this devise is not supported". SuperSU now states "There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it. This is a problem!

I would like to be able to root my GS5 again.

Please advise.

Thank you!

Maybe you update to the new software.

True! I do recall a recent update via KIES after I rooted.

So will I not be able to use Towelroot anymore? Is there a work-a-round? As a Mac user I've discovered rooting manually extremely challenging.

Please let me know & thank you for your response.

Did you check the info I mentioned in my post?

If you are on firmware/kernel June 3rd or after, you need to Odin back to Samsung Full Stock Firmware that is rootable.
Example is if you are currently on NF6, you need to downgrade to NE6.
You can then Root afterwards.

Or you can root via odin+recovery or cf-autoroot but that will void your warranty
