Hey all. Very new to rooting and everything that's goes along with it. Would like to root and rom my samsung galaxy s5 900a from AT&T. Don't know where to begin. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Go to "settings" > "about device", and scroll down to "kernel version". Next write down that date. Then scroll down to "SE for andriod status" and write down that date. Finaly post these two dates (be sure to indicate which is which), as they are very important when trying to tell you the easiest way to root.

you have the ATT version of the S5, which means it's much more difficult to root because of the locked bootloader.

are you running 5.0 Lollipop? if you are, there is currently no way to root the phone on the ATT version.
