Root G900VVRU1ANI2 4.4.4 Update on Verizon Galaxy S5 SM-G900V using Towelroot

If it happens that you've already lose root after the Android 4.4.4 update dubbed with firmware build  G900VVRU1ANI2 on your Galaxy S5 SM-G900V Verizon version. You can still gain root on G900VVRU1ANI2 4.4.4 update using the same method that we have been proven worked on previous 4.4.2 update build G900VVRU1ANE9. The root process only requires some workaround by tweaking the stock kernel and then by installing Towelroot and the latest SuperSU into your phone.

In addition, this root method  requires you to revert back to G900VVRU1ANCG kernel version as *Geohot’s Towelroot* only covered and only worked on an older firmware build that did not exceed the June 3rd 2014 time limit. Once the G900VVRU1ANCG kernel installation has made you can then run Towelroot then simply flash back the new G900VVRU1ANI2 4.4.4 kernel build.

If you have nay doubt if this root method truly worked, our fellas at XDA-developers can confirm about that and it did actually worked on the latest G900VVRU1ANI2 4.4.4 KitKat update.

Good Work
Just finished everything went smooth still have root
4.4.4 build an12 thanks

Super easy guide to follow. Thanks OP

Worked like a charm on my Verizon SM-G900V that had taken the N12 OTA update.

The Root Process


1.) Take the OTA to G900VVRU1ANI2 4.4.4 .

2.) Once your phones starts put it back into download mode, and select G900V_NCG_Stock_Kernel.tar.md5 under PA and Click start and wait a few minutes.

3.) Once your phone restarts you may notice some apps will start to fail and force close, this is why I had you install Towel Root prior so we can get in and get out, Press Ok or Force Close continuously if necessary until you get Towel Root open and "Make it rain". Then turn off the phone and go back into Download Mode.

4.) Now flash NI2_stock_kernel.tar.md5 and let the phone restart

5.) Update the SuperSu binary from Play Store if necessary.

Just head-over at XDA-developers original thread for the step-by-step instructions.

Make sure to give thank’s to [JTidler] and to all of our XDA-Developers fellas for providing the necessary files and those who have risk their devices into some possible undesired outcomes.   Just drop some few words below if this root method has just worked out on your Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900V, so others may also knows about it.

How to Upgrade the Galaxy S5 SM-G900F to the latest 4.4.2 Software Update


Samsung always advises us to prepare the following important notes to consider before performing the software update.  I have also added some useful insights why you should follow this procedures to keep your  phone in safe.

Recharge the phone’s battery – You should make sure your device is fully recharged before performing the software update. Do not also remove the battery during the software update is in progress. A power failures may cause damaged to your device that might results as we so-called “soft-bricks”. If this happens your device may just stuck on Samsung logo or welcome screen and can’t reboot normally.

Backup important data – You should back-up your important files, including contacts, emails, messages, photos, videos, apps and other stuff. Like I said while during software update process is interrupted there is a possibility that your data stored from your device internal SD card may lose or deleted when a sudden unexpected failure happened and it forces you to perform a factory data reset which basically wipes your phone’s memory.

Galaxy S5 has no root - Your device should not been modified or rooted, there is a certain circumstances that a modified and rooted Galaxy S5 SM-G900F may not accept any official software update anymore or it can accept an update but it might harm your device once the update has made. Learn about the new Samsung KNOX security suite. Most known error that says ‘firmware upgrade encountered an issue, please select recovery mode in kies and try again‘ or “Your device has been modified Software update are not available” you should try to avoid that from happening.
