    Welcome to the forum Marina!
    Here's a great video guide on rooting your NI2 version S5.
    Verizon Galaxy S5 NI2 How To Root Latest 4.4.4 OT…:
    This is currently the latest Verizon build, so you shouldn't have to worry about another update coming through. (At least for now)
    All the files you need are included in the video description.
    Follow the guide to the letter and you'll be good to go. Holler if you have any questions or concerns. Good luck! :)
