Whenever a new Android device surfaces, the first objective of the community is to gain root access, and that's exactly what Chainfire has managed to achieve with Samsung's forthcoming flagship, the Galaxy S5. Even though the handset itself is not scheduled to be released for two weeks, the Galaxy S5 has been successfully rooted.
Rooting is to Android what jailbreak is to iOS, and hence, one of the most important aspects of Android smartphones and tablets. One interesting thing about this operating system is the highly active developer community that is so quick to take up new devices, that even the likes of Nexus 5 have already been rooted, despite being out for just a few days. Even better news is that the root is quite easy to achieve, and in this post, we’ll show you how to root your Google Nexus 5 using ChainFire’s CF-Auto-Root.
