Earlier we saw how to install PhilZ custom Touch recovery on the Exynos version of the Galaxy S4. A rooting tutorial is also available for the Galaxy S4 running on Android 5.0.1. This procedure is a fairly simple one and does not involve the use of the Odin software as is seen in most of the Samsung devices. This process involves the installation of the SuperSU software.
Rooting the device will have lots of advantages. Samsung devices usually come with a lot of bloatware and most of them are not of great use. They will just increase the RAM consumption and memory usage and make the device slower. If you get root access, then you will be able to delete the bloatware. Besides this, you can install many mods, custom ROMs and much more. Guide is given below to root the Galaxy S4 on Android 5.0.1.
