The Galaxy S5 (and Other Android Phones) are Now Easier to Root Than Ever

By Micah Singleton on at

Famed hacker Geohot has released a tool called Towelroot that will allow you to root your Galaxy S5, along with a number of other prominent Android devices.

Geohot, the hacker behind a number of iOS jailbreaks and the target of Sony's legal team after hacking the PS3 a few years back has turned his sights toward Android and the notoriously tough-to-crack Samsung Galaxy S5. His newest exploit will give you unfettered access to the depths of your device, and it also works on the Note 3 and the recently released LG G3. Have at it. [Geek]
