    Default Re: root question

    I've been reading three S5 forums and so far, I am not getting enough positive vibes that rooting the S5 is worth while.

    There aren't very many ROMs available and the help is not too good yet.

    AT&T and Verizon have decided to make it darn near impossible to root phones on their system.

    There are precious few things you can do with a rooted phone that you can't do with a stock carrier version.

    I'm on Verizon so rooting it is a moot point, ain't a gonna happen anytime soon, if ever.

    So far, TouchWiz has been able to do anything that I wanted. but, the grass can sometimes look greener on the other side of the fence.
