    My eMMC type is Samsung. What next?
    Then, it would appear, you have a rootable model and can therefore continue with the instructions in post #16 and downgrade to Lollipop, Android 5.0, and root your firmware. Rooting is for experienced and competent users and all stages should be carefully and thoroughly read before proceeding. I cannot personally vouch for the process as the Global models of the Samsung Galaxy S5 do not have the rooting restrictions that Verizon place on their own G900V model.

    So 2017, there is still no way to root a Verizon 6.0.1 Galaxy S5 G900V?

    Why is that there are a hundred video tutorials (recent one's) on Youtube, with a million views, saying "Root any Galaxy S5 6.0.1 verizon" and they have lots of likes, not fake likes, they seem to actually be working for the majority of the people trying it.

    ?? Is it just this one particular build model that is in the 1% that does not work? SM-G900V? Why is that? I dont get it...

    I am afraid that now support for the Galaxy S5 is ending, we are seeing owners worldwide, looking to root their phones that they now own so that they can de-bloat them, flash custom ROM's that are still supported with Google security patches, update to Nougat or just switch carriers.

    This is not a problem in 195 of the 196 countries, worldwide and all the 42 Samsung Galaxy S5 phones, both carrier free and branded... save for... the Land of the Free!

    Can you post a link to one of these videos that claims to be able to root the Verizon, G900V, model on Android 6.0.1.

    I've been reading a lot of questions out there regarding people wanting to root their S5 on 6.0.1 I found an app called BK package disabler PRO by KunKunSoft from the Google Play Store that I used instead this way you can get rid of all the bloatware without voiding your warranty. Hope this helps! Make sure you only get the one from this guy

    Hello -

    I have the same specification on my Galaxy S5 and have not been able to find a compatible root. I even paid a service to assist and they did not have a solution (tried two different options). From their perspective, I will need to downgrade the build on my existing phone before it can be rooted. I'll continue to research and let you know what I find.

    How to downgrade when i can't root phone
    Providing you do not have the minority carrier variants for either AT&T or Verizon, downgrading is a simple matter of downloading the firmware for your model of phone and Product code and flashing it using Odin, as detailed in #1.11 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide

    But that is for the ATT model. I have a gs-m900v (Verizon) model. And the kicker is it has the "11 Toshiba emmc#" so the unlock meathod doesn't work on 11. Can the emmc be changed and still allow the phone to function ? I am not new to this so I can use adb aND fastboot. I am also very familiar with Odin. Any help, in the form of links to a usable guide, or any help in general would be apreciated.

    "The term eMMC is short for "embedded Multi-Media Controller" and refers to a package consisting of both flash memory and a flash memory controller integrated on the same silicon die", and is therefore the phone's hardware.

    I am afraid, thanks to Verizon, their G900V minority variant with the Toshiba eMMC chip remains un-rootable. This does not affect any other Galaxy S5' worldwide, regardless of their eMMC, that were NOT given mega locked down bootloaders by Samsung.
