The international Samsung Galaxy S5 model can already be rooted

Two weeks. That's how much longer the world has to wait for Samsung's coveted Galaxy S5 to hit the shelves around the globe. That's not a whole not. On the other hand, two weeks seem like quite the comfortable lead to have a root method readied, and recognized XDA developer Chainfire has just that. The dev has made his root tool, CF-AutoRoot, available to the public for free, though you're invited to buy him a beer (donate). This specific method will work only for the international SM-G900F model, and you're very strongly advised to not try it on any other model...

Does anybody know what happend with that rumor, that apps won't be able to write on ext. SD due to a Samsung deal with Google for promoting Drive? Was it true after all? Did they cancelled it?

So they manipulate people to go for Drive or phones whith more built-in storage (32Gb+). Do they want us to buy their $#i7?

Seems like a good modding phone! Developers already managed to root it before its official release to stores.
