It’s a shame Samsung has made some of their latest phones hard to root — Galaxy S5 on Verizon and ATT, for example. KNOX may be useful for the enterprise, but I’d rather have easy root on my phones. Samsung should offer this option. Better yet would be a website customers could go to that would allow them to unlock their bootloader and/or get root on their phones.

IMO, without being able to root, the Android you get from most carriers is not very user friendly. It should be easy for people to get rid of apps and services they don’t want.

Actually, it’s not only just Samsung. The LG g2 was difficult to root because you have to download all these LG softwares and i believe the tmobile model can’t root while on kitkat. Manufacturing companies and the efforts from carriers are both making it more hard nowdays. Ihope android’s future doesnt continue this path.

Is there a difference between this app and titanium backup free version?
