1.2 - Download the rootkit from one of the links below:

1.3 - Make a folder at any location.

1.4 - Extract the files into said folder.

1.6 - To check if the S5 drivers is installed correctly:

1.6.1 - Start MtkDroidTools found in the folder you created.

1.6.2 - In the lower left corner of the window, there should be a white box and the text "The device isn't revealed. Connect or reconnect the cable!".

1.6.3 - Connect your phone to the computer using an USB 2.0 port.

2.2.1 - Download the [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register].

2.2.2 - Run the installer and install the content.

2.2.3 - On prompt, de-tick all (should be 3) checkboxes. You don't need them.

Win8:

2.2.1 - Locate the preload or S5 folder in the extracted folder according to which driver you wish to install. Make sure your phone is not connected to the PC.

2.2.2 - execute the "Install_Driver.exe"

2.2.3 - Turn your phone off, take out the battery.

2.2.4 - Connect your phone to your computer, and open Device manager.

2.2.5 - There should not be any drivers with warning signs (yellow sign).


2.3 - [u]Manually install drivers, if above did not work (Yellow sign issue)


2.3.1 - Navigate to control panel - > Hardware and Sound - > Device Manager

2.3.2 - You should see a driver notice with a yellow warning sign next to it.

2.3.3 - Right click on it and choose "Update driver..".

2.3.4 - Manually assign drivers, usually the choice furthest down.

2.3.5 - In the window which should have appeared, navigate to the preload/Mt6590 folder and press OK.

2.3.6 - If SDE is turned off, you should see a red warning window. This is normal, just accept the message prompted.

2.3.7 - The drivers should now be successfully installed.


Part 3 - Flashing Yulypis recovery.

3.1 - Turn off your phone, remove your battery. (Do not connect your phone to the computer yet!)

3.2 - Navigate to the "SP Flash Tool" folder, and run the tool.

3.3 - On the right side of the tool, there should be a button, iconed with a folder, named "Scatter-Loading". Click this.

3.4 - Navigate to the "Yulypis Recovery" folder, and double-click on the "Mt6589_Android_scatter-emmc.txt".

3.5 - You should be back at the SP Flash Tool start-screen, and there should have appeared a list of text and hex-codes.

3.6 - The "Recovery" checkbox should be checked (activated, with green mark), and preloader should be red.

3.7 - Now, click on the button named "Download", with a blue arrow on it. Press "YES" on the NOT ALL images has been correctly loaded warning.

3.8 - Connect your phone to a USB 2.0, with removed battery. The program should now work, and if drivers is set up correctly, the 0% will turn 100% and a green circle will appear in the middle of the screen. If your phone disconnects before the flashing tool is able to recognize your device, try putting the battery back into the phone before running SP Flash tool. Additionally, if this doesn't work, reinstall the preload drivers as explained in part 2.

3.9 - Disconnect your S5 from the computer when you see the green circle, insert the battery and boot the phone. Wait for it to get to the start screen.


Part 4 - Installing SuperSU through Yulypis recovery

4.1 - Run "MtkDroidTools.exe" from the folder.

4.2 - Connect your device, and after a few seconds, information about your device should appear.

4.3 - Click on reboot, on the mtkDroidTools start-screen, and choose "..recovery".

4.4 - If recovery has been properly flashed, your device will now enter Yulypis recovery. Blue, with english text.

4.5 - Controllers: "Power = Enter, Initialize", "Volume down = Scrolling down". (Don't remember if volume up was bugged or not)

4.6 - Enter "Install zip from SDcard" - > Navigate to the earlier copied "UPDATE-SuperSU-v.1.25.zip and initialize it by pressing the power button.

4.7 - Follow the on-screen instructions, and it should be prompted to install after 1-2 more screens.

4.8 - Reboot the device by clicking on "+++++back+++++" and "Reboot now / Reboot Device".


Your device should now have SuperSU installed and thus rooted. Congratulations.

Special thanks:
- Gizbit for links to various drivers and tools.
- Yulypis for the english recovery.
- Toolmakers.

Got the files required, thanks to Re4mstr for posting them at box.com, but can not get the drivers to load on my Win 7 machine. Anyone had any luck with it ??

If no luck I will just have to dust off my WinXP PC and try that ......

What exactly is the problem when you say "Problem get them to load"?

Do they install? You have tried both manual and auto install, after successfully disabling SDE?

Gizbeat - The PDANet drivers worked, all others failed to load the S5 ADB driver even after disabling SDE.

All other parts of the tutorial work as I now have a rooted S5 with english recovery and a working GPS.

Now wondering if I should do a factory reset, dump the ROM and then do above, remove all the stuff that does nothing for me which would give me a base ROM. Is it that easy ????? (coming to another post soon)

I'm glad it worked! Smiling

I'll update the tutorial on how to install drivers on Win7 and see if other users experience the same problem on W8.

Before this; did you install the drivers in the kit on the phone preload? If not, try uninstalling the current preload drivers and install the one in the kit.

If you did install the drivers from the kit on the preload, what you could do is to insert the battery before connecting. As far as I know, it shouldn't matter as long as you don't turn on the phone while the flashing is active.

I have drivers from package, I checked different drivers and all are same.
When I insert battery and connect to cable, phone shows battery indicator with red bar down. On computer is connected MT65xx Preloader (as without battery). After such 4 seconds device is disconnected and phone shows battery with 99 or 100%. No other action.
Did anybody tried use original recovery to install UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.25.zip? I want only root, I don't need different recovery or ROM now.

Update - Looks like solved.
Most important is points 2.1.1-2.1.5 "Disable Signed Driver Enforcement"

After this, correct driver could be assigned, bad MT65xx Preloader has been changed to right Mediatek Preloader ... and "SP Flash Tool" finds phone and flashing of recoery works. In new recovery works UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.25.zip, so I have root and it looks that works gapps too.
