    Yea, shouldn't be too long before they have a stable version working I would think

    It's very popular, so high demand = ass kicking to get it released

    Still waiting for the official update here for my S5 but being a New Zealand telco it's going to be awhile yet, not really interested in using Odin for this phone so I will wait..

    I had a feeling you had the Thailand version, just like my brother.

    It seems the middle east, including Turkey have the Thailand version of the Note 4...

    i checked every inch of those numbers and they were correct. just a Q was missing and it was worth a shot and works.

    lollipop brings good stuff and yes looks light.

    Have you found the Easter egg in Lollipop yet?

    Keep tapping on the Android version in "About" then tap a few more times and press and hold on the lollipop that appears

    AT&T is slow with putting their bloatware on their devices.=]

    One thing I'll say for Samsung devices, they were always easy to root. Odin a custom recovery, install superSU, and you're good!

    Samsung have made that easy process a headache if you want to keep your warranty now though, they've added KNOX 0x0 - if you flash custom recovery or ROM, it trips to 0x1 with no way to reset

    Even flashing a stock ROM does nothing to reset it, they call it an e-FUSE

    Chainfire's Counter resetter used to work on older models such as the SIII, but I do know newer ones they haven't been able to get the counter reset again.

    Although they do say usually before you do it you void your warranty. :D Every device I had that I rooted I understood that and went with the risk, hell the ones I had insurance on when they needed replaced I told them I "Lost it" and paid the deductible.

    Yeah, triggering a KNOX is at present irreversible... Even chainfife has stated it is impossible... Its different to all other counters..

    I stupidly triggerted mine the other week when updating my modem and bootloader failed, I must have downloaded a knox enabled BL by accident (always check your source kids!!") so when I flashed on top of it, knox was triggered... bit gutted, but i'm always aosp anyway so it doesnt really affect me, apart from 2 wee lines of warning on the bootup screen

    haha nice, ideas forming.... :D


    Yep, and my S5 is brand new contract, which is why I still see ads, grrr lol

    I normally root the day I get the device, this time I haven't, waiting hopefully for a KNOX friendly root method

    Easy to root KitKat without tripping KNOX, none for Lollipop

    To flash a KNOX free ROM, you must be rooted to start with, and now I am on Lollipop, I have a different KNOX enabled BL too,

    Was too quick upgrading to LP on day 1 thinking rooting would be as easy as it always has been - should have done some reading up first
