Okay, so I have a Galaxy S5 (SM-G900W8) and I messed up something trying to install boot animations, so I backed up my data and updated to 5.1.1 from 5.0. Then, my root broke so I tried to reroot through CF-AutoRoot but when I tried to root it SuperSU didn't auto-install and when I installed it through the Playstore it said it needed to update binary but it failed everytime. (Stupidly) I factory reset my phone and tried again, nothing. So eventually, I flashed stock rom on it to try to unroot and when I tried to root again with CF-AutoRoot I got the same problem as before. Can anyone help me? Root used https:// download dot chainfire dot eu/406/CF-Root/CF-Auto-Root/CF-Auto-Root-kltecan-kltevl-smg900w8.zip

Try this kernel...

... and this version of SuperSU...

I know, but when I root it, it doesn't work and it still says it needs to update binary, and when I try to uninstall through SuperSU it fails. So I flashed it to unroot, but still no luck :(

My phone is in a bootloop after using method #1 EDIT: After some googling and troubleshooting, I have come to the conclusion that the root isn't compatible as I am running 5.1.1.

This is the tutorial I have been searching for... [HOWTO] Root your G900W8 stock 5.1.1 firmware :) Proven by users on this forum to work on G900W8, Android 5.1.1.

Start with stock Samsung, Android 5.1.1, firmware for your model of phone, CSC and Product code, (Canadian firmwares have not been updated since the tutorial was written), and install TWRP, (twrp-3.0.0-0-klte-klte.img.tar 11.6M), using Odin, (install in AP), and then follow the instructions in the link above.
