Hello,

Root for G901F is fine now.

All credits to @Chainfire

Tuto's here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1980683

File to download is here http://download.chainfire.eu/481/CF-Root/CF-Auto-Root/CF-Auto-Root-kccat6-kccat6xx-smg901f.zip

Be informed that Knox will be affected to 0x1 by rooting.


Edit 2014/12/01:

Added CWM Recovery in English working for G901F.
Thanks to @Chenglu for making this possible.

Bugs in CWM:

Aroma interface not working (...Aroma doesn't support MSM OVERLAY display mode, g901f kernel only use MSM OVERLAY...) Pb See here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=57163957&postcount=26

Everything else is working.




Best regards
Franky

Ok found my pb by odin and "flash" ROM.

But my S5 is still not rooted.

Did not find anything about this for my model SM-G901F.

Still searching.

Best regards
Franky

Download and flash a G901F rom from Sammobile/firmwares/ with Odin. First pull the battery, wait 30 seconds, boot into downloadmode and connect to the pc and flash the rom with Odin and data factory reset afterwards.

hi
I sent g901f recovery to Chainfire to make CFAR.
For now it's not working, probably because this phone is the first with s805.
Chainfire is working on it, maybe he will find some path to root it.
just wait and be patient

Yep, I saw that on original thread.

Think I'm not the only one who wants to root this one!

Hope it will come soon, can't wait!

Mine is Singapore version i guess. Yours from france?

Might consider downloading the update but not sure will have any problems afterwards since its from different countries.
Sent from my SM-G901F using XDA Free mobile app

Yep, France.
Chainfire build this CFAR from recovery and cache img from ROM.
If they're the same on yours, you've got a chance.

If not, ask Chainfire (he's a beast dev) on his thread, maybe he'll be able to help you.
It's here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1980683

Good luck

I've been looking for this model but I haven't seen it in the UK yet. Is it on general sale in France?

Has anyone seen it anywhere other than France and Singapore?

Firmware exists for france, germany, netherlands, romania, united kingdom, singapore and switzerland, I suppose G901F is coming or about to in all these countries.

Mine is from France (bouygues telecom) and it's G901FXXU1ANH6 too.
I didn't root it yet using http://androidxda.com/root-samsung-galaxy-s5-lte-sm-g901f

I assume that knox will be set to 0x01, correct ?

Yes.

Will increment knox.

    Edit 1rst post.

    Added CWM Recovery in English for G901F.

    Aroma interface still not working.
    Everything's else ok.

    Hi! :)
    I just acquired the G901F aswell, already rooted and installed your recovery find, which is working good at the exception of flashing a ROM that I just made.
    I'am using ArchiKitchen to make the ROM, everything is fine about the rom creation part but I always face a Status 6 error code when flashing the ROM via this Recovery.
    Just talked with the developer or the kitchen, but unfortunately he have no idea of my error, since the generated updater-script is absolutely perfect, so I'am wondering if the recovery accepts roms higher than 1GB or there is something wrong when reading/traducing the updater-script itself since it stuck at the almost end of the script with errors that are not.

    Any help would be appreciated, so I will release the first G901F optimized rom ever, and as I'am a kernel developer also, I already can't wait to release one also but for now my priority is clearly to flash this rom :good:
    Thanks in advance ;)
