    New to android devices, just got my hands on a GS5, and wish to configure this phone primarily to run with my valentine v1 radar detector running the app YaV1. Want to also run something like Llama to automate things for this application in my vehicle, etc. Need some advice regarding rooting this phone. It is currently running android version 5.1.1 Appreciate any help, experiences, advice, etc.

    Thanks!

    The only suggestion that I could find, is to downgrade to OJ4 and root...

    [ROOT/KERNEL] Root Method for FOJ4

    Alternatively, you could flash a stock, rooted, ROM for OL1...
