Look if for your S5 LTE is aviable cf auto root. Not that the version of the os MUST BE the same that you have (ex. Flash cf auto root for 5.1.1 8r9 you have lollipop 5.1.1, don't flash it if you have marshmallow 6.0.1, but find the one for marshmallow).
Anyway I confirm you that is not necessary di a factory reset after root, but is suggested to do a backup to avoid problems... REMEBER THAT FLASHING ROOT YOU WILL TRIP KNOX AND LOSE WARRANTY, and this can't be undone!
Don't forget to hit thanks if this message was helpful for you! Good luck with rooting process!:good:
Nope, as said that's not what you've flashed. You downloaded and flashed the sm-g9350 hero2qltezh Chinese version further down.
The full list of all supported devices is always available and always current at the CF-Auto-Root homepage.
Most supported devices have their own threads here on XDA, you can find the thread for your device in the device listing on the CF-Auto-Root homepage as well.
I will not be maintaining a secondary list in this post, as it would be double work.
First of all, wasn't sure if it was allowed to post on this thread (it's odd, 4 days old and no post), as I've seen nothing saying I shouldn't, here I go.
Newbie question here:
1) Is it possible to flash CWM Recovery with this root?
2) I'm willing to flash it, should I then just root using CF-Root(non-auto) as it already comes with CWM?
3) The version of CWM on CF-Root (non-auto) is already outdated, would it be a problem if I just flashed the new version over it with ODIN (download it from clockworkmod.com/rommanager and flash)?
I ask this because I want to keep my phone as stock as possible, but want to be able to perform a Nandroid backup and flash some ZIPs (if there's a way to perferm/restore Nandroid backups and flash ZIPs w/o CWM please tell me how )
