As you know the Sprint model of Samsung Galaxy S5 received the official touch of Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. The update has been released as an OTA updates, though a manual update process is also available – you have to use Odin for manually flashing stock Android OS on your Samsung branded device.

Now, as we all know, when installing a new official Android OS, root access is being revoked. Thus, if your Sprint Galaxy S5 was rooted, after installing Lollipop OS the root access was retained. Therefore, most likely, you are now looking for a new root solution that can be safely applied on the new Android 5.0 system.

Well, in that case you should know that Chainfire released his popular and highly appreciated one click root exploit for your Sprint Samsung Galaxy S5. So, now you can use CF-Auto-Root for easily and safely unlocking the new Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware.

CF-Auto-Root for Samsung devices represents a great root opportunity and an easy to apply unlock operation even for those who are on their first root experience. Basically, the root exploit is being flashed through Odin, just like you would do with an official Android firmware. Thus, you have to use Odin for flashing the root exploit and that’s it.

Well, the same operation has to be completed when talking about the new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. As we know, on Lollipop Google added further security programs, which are preventing root access. But, thanks to Chainfire you can now use the same CF-Auto-Root exploit for unlocking your Sprint Samsung Galaxy S5.

Do remember that root is an unofficial process and that you will lose your Sprint warranty if you choose to root the new Lollipop OS. Moreover, don’t forget to backup your personal data before doing anything else and also charge your phone before using Odin.
