Let’s take a start
Root AT&T Galaxy S5 5.1.1 firmware G900AUCU4CPA2 (and below)
- First of all you have to download and then install the Kingroot v5.0.0 apk from the link above to your AT&T S5.
- Here you have to head to the Kingroot and try obtaining root with it. It probably fails a couple of times. But you have to keep retrying till it achieves root.
- Now uninstall Kingroot v5.
- Download and install Kingroot v4.81. Although this is because Super-Sume doesn’t so far support Kingroot 5.
- Go to the Kingroot v4.81 app and also try for root again by using the app. Here your phone will restart and then you will have to root again.
It is fine whether it takes more than one reboot.
- Now you have to download/install Super-Sume (paid app) from the Play Store. Moreover, this is needed so you are also able to have SuperSU in order to run root permissions on your phone.
