A new rooting tool called TowelRoot, released by the most popular iPhone Hacker Geohot in 2014 for Samsung Galaxy S5 (Verizon & AT&T) and other Android devices. Geohot (aka George Hotz) is a familiar name in the jailbreak community and was famous for the several ventures into the iPhone jailbreaking as well as for his many hacking exploits with PlayStations 3 (PS3) console, and then he has also turned his attention to root Android gadgets.

TowelRoot is an easy and efficient way to root Android phones even with locked bootloaders to install those third-party apps which need root access. This simple .apk file can be downloaded from towelroot.com and is expected to work on any Android device released before June 3, 2014.

    Has anyone been able to root an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900A) running Android 5.0 (in particular, version G900AUCU4BOF2, released 7/9/15 by AT&T)? I tried:
    1. Downloading Towelroot ver. 3 from https://towelroot.com, but clicking the lambda opened tha .apk as a text file.
    2. Note that clicking “fix it yourself” opened a file advising click “welcome to travelroot v3” thrice and then enter “1337 0 1 7380 4 0”.
    3. Downloaded towelroot to PC from towelroot.en.uptodown.com/android/download and transferred to cell phone
    4. Installed using ES File Explorer.
    5. Running Towelroot by clicking “make it r a in” gave “This phone isn’t currently supported.”
    6. Tapping “welcome to towelroot v3″ thrice and entering modstring 1337 0 1 7380 4 0” and it still failed to run.
    7. Downloaded Kingo Root as android.root.exe from Kingoapp.com/android-root/download and installed on PC.
    8. Noted that Samsung Galaxy S5 was not listed as supported.
    9. Connected phone to PC USB 3.0 port with USB debugging enabled.
    10. After recognizing phone, ran Kingo from PC.
    11. After 30 min, message “Failed” appeared and “Leave your email address so we can get back to you when supported”, but there was no field to enter email address.
    12. Rooting failure confirmed with Root Checker.
