How to root and Flash Custom Recovery in Samsung galaxy S5
 

 

Step 1: Enable Unknown Sources

Step 2: Download Towelroot

Hotz has made his root exploit app available to all through its website. Just open your Galaxy’s web browser and navigate to towelroot.com. From here, tap the lambda symbol to download the installer file.
When the download is finished, tap the notification to initiate the install process. From here, hit Install, and when finished, tap Open.

Step 3: Root Your Device

When you open Towelroot, you’ll notice that there’s not very much to the app’s UI. Just a single button that says make it ra1n.
Just tap this button and you’re device will be rooted. That’s it.
Give the app about 15 seconds to perform Pinkie Pie’s exploit and copy over the necessary files, and your phone will automatically reboot. When it comes back up, you’ll be rooted. If you know you’re way around an Android device, then all of the steps above shouldn’t take longer than 20 seconds, though it will vary from device to device.

Step 4: Verify the Root Was Successful (Optional)
