    I have samsung galaxy s5 not rooted running Kitkat 4.4.4. I am looking to root it but cannot find any tutorials for rooting 4.4.4 for the 1st time, all are just videos for updating from a previous rooted firmware to it. Will the regular towelroot work? Thanks.

    IIRC, the answer is not, 4.4.4 blocked that from working,

    however I read that another guy found a way to root 4.4.4 but I don't remember where I read it.

    You really need to post this in the ROOT forum, not here but I'm just trying to help a bit.

    Following that link I gave you provided me, a Verizon user, at least 3 tutorials on rooting the NI2 (latest 4.4.4) version

    I'm not brave enough to try it today, need to eat some more Cheerios cereal first.

    If I run towelroot on my Verizon Samsung Galaxy s5 running the latest firmware, will it work? And all of my anti-viruses say it's a virus, is this because it could potentially end up harming your device from apps granted root access or is the actual download a virus.
