Hello Fandroid, this is a step by step tutorial to show Rooting and Unrooting of Samsung Galaxy S5 almost (some models are not supported) all variants  without a data loss and without harming your device unless you will do something wrong during following my instructions. Please note: This Rooting Method Can Trigger Knox and you wouldnt able to claim warranty from Samsung, so if you want your warranty intact stay away from this rooting guide thanks.  Dont use rooting to pirate applications and games, only use it for productive work. However rooting helps you to overclock  CPU speed  as well as many other things. But to keep it simple stay with the basics.

To Root your S5 using this tutorial you need two things :

1. Samsung Kies:

Download a Samsung Kies from a Samsung Official Website directly to make sure you have correct drivers installed in your computer for your Note 3.

2. Download Odin Software and extract it using winrar :


After downloading Odin 3 download Root software for installing root on your Samsung  variant from a below links. Please make sure your are downloading a correct rooting tool kit for your S5 from a below link otherwise your phone will be brick and i will not be responsible for that.

Other Variants

CF-Auto-Root is not yet available for all models, so kindly use the above files on exact variant otherwise you will end up in bricking your phone

After downloading CF-Auto-Root for your S5, extract it using winrar and you will get 3 files like a below picture, but you have to ignore two odin files because we have already installed odin in our system


Now once you have installed a Samsung Kies and open it with your S5 connected with your computer,  it will automatically detect your phone and install all the necessary hardware of your phone in your computer. When you connect your phone with your pc it will look like a below picture in Samsung Kies.

After doing this step, make sure you have closed down a Samsung Kies as well as you have disconnected your phone from computer.


After installing drivers through Samsung Kies  you have to open Odin. Now from a ODIN Folder you have to press a third file which is Odin3 (Run as Administrator and make sure your phone is disconnected from computer). After opening it you will see a window like below picture.

After opening this Odin file you have to turn off your Note 3 by pressing power on and off key on your S5 until its get completely off. Once it gets completely off PRESS (POWER ON AND OFF KEY + HOME BUTTON + VOLUME DOWN KEY AT THE SAME TIME). This will get you in to a downloading mode like a below picture in your phone.

Now you have to press PDA in Odin and you have to search for a file CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.tar.md5 (if you are on different variant than you will have something else instead of smn9005) which is in your downloaded CF-Auto folder.  Look at below picture to see how this file looks like

Now double tap on the file it will be added to Odin and press Start in Odin and leave your phone as it is. After starting a process you will see a window like below picture in your phone with downloading bar and then let process to go complete until your phone get restarted (make sure you dont touch your phone unless its restarted
