Samsung Galaxy S5
Easy Root Method
Metro PCS

Looking to root your Galaxy S5 for Metro PCS? Make sure you understand that rooting your device will void your warranty so please make sure you follow the instructions correctly and do not skip any steps. This is a very easy root method and I have not heard of anyone making any mistakes as of yet but you do not want to be the first! Also always back up your info and remove your memory card before rooting. I have seen a lot of people erase all their information when trying to root their device on their own. If your still interested well here you go!
