    I own a galaxy S5 and I want to root it. I am not interested in upgrading the software since I already downgraded from Marshmallow to Kitkat again. So I need some help finding the right one for my phone so I don't damage it.

    Model Number: SM-G900F
    Android Version: 4.4.2
    Baseband Version: G900FXXU1ANG8

    I also inserted a screenshot of my phone's info in case something further is needed. Root for Galaxy S5 running Kitkat 4.4.2 for Nordic countries-screenshot_2017-02-03-13-01-40.jpg

    Thank you!

    Hello and welcome to Android Central Margit11!

    To root the international model of the Galaxy S5, G900F, you need to flash the CF-Auto-Root kernel by chainfire, using Odin and by following the instructions and downloads in his xda developers forum thread...

    [SM-G900*] CF-Auto-Root

    Here is a video of the procedure...
