    Yeah it worked...

    Every once in a while I get a msg from Google or Verizon to send records of something... security files of some type or another. I keep pressing the clear button instead of taking a darn screen shot. Anyone else getting this?

    Now that you have root if you haven't already I would download Titanium Backup to freeze SDM 1.0 & Security Policy Update so you won't get any "updates" that would cause you to lose root.

    UK how are things going?

    You know I still have my tbolt though it has long been retired. Retired it for the galaxy nexus, which was then retired for the note 2, which has now been retired for the nexus 5. The tbolt just collects dust as the money that is offered for the thing now days is like $50 and that is being generous.

    Doing well my friend. Yeah my TB is long retired as well. It's sitting gathering dust just like yours. I moved on to the GNEX as well, but kept that for a long time before getting my S5. Which I'm really liking by the way!

    Sorry to hear that Steeveegee! There's really not much you can do at this point aside from waiting on developers to come up with an updated root method. Being that it was one of the more difficult devices to find an exploit to begin with, I wouldn't count on a new root method anytime soon. On a positive note, you'll now get all the latest OTAs right away, so there's that to look forward to. Keep an eye on XDA and Geohot and hope for the best, stranger things have happened. Good luck!

    what a shame!
    what good is an O.T.A update if your phone runs worse then before?
    galaxy s5 is a beautiful phone but a laggy p.o.s with verizons crap on it
    i could understand voiding your samsung warranty with root but this is retarded
    i dont understand why they care if its rooted so much.
    i was so unhappy with this phone then came towelroot and all was perfect
    i had this thing running perfectly
    i wonder how long till someone fixes this

    The problem was, too many people over the years who had no clue what they were doing started rooting their phones and bricking them. They would then return said brick to Verizon under warranty or insurance for a replacement, which obviously came out of Verizon's pocket. Because of this, carriers like Verizon & AT&T started locking down their phones and making it extremely difficult to root, thus solving (for the must part) their bricked phone/insurance replacement problem.
