    Hello, I have an at&t samsung galaxy s5. It's on the 4.4.2 firmware. I've tried using towel root. When I try to root it says my phone is not supported. I've also tried changing the root code strings which still failed.

    Is there any other way I can root my device?

    The exploit Towel Root used was patched on June 3, 2014, so if your kernel is dated later than June 2, 2014, Towel Root won;t work on it.

    You could try iRoot. Or you could look over at XDA Forums at the AT&T S5 forum to see if someone has a rooted stock ROM you can flash. (If you don't know how to flash ROMs on a Samsung, read [Samsung] How to flash Stock ROM via ODIN.)
