To change modstrings, open the app and click three times on “Welcome To Toowelroot V3”. A new box below make it rain will open. You have to type one of the following codes in the box.

  • Code 1: 1337 0 1 0 4 0 (Standard code – works on most devices)
  • Code 2: 1337 0 1 7380 4 0 (For Samsung Galaxy Device)
  • Code 3: 1337 0 1 0 4 1 (Universal code – gives temporary Root Access)

The first code is universal, it works for a lot of Android phone so if your phone isn’t supported by towelroot type the first code and hit root button.

The second code is for new Samsung Galaxy device. If you have one of the latest Samsung Galaxy devices type the second code and hit the root button.

    • What is your kernel date because it doesn’t support all the kernel version. The new kernels have patched the exploit so you can’t do anything just to wait for another exploit to be found.

    • If you go on Youtube or Google, you can easily find a lot of websites offering to guide you in rooting your phone. You have to be careful though as some guides might not work for some phones and you might end up bricking your phone if you take that risk. Therefore, I suggest you thoroughly make sure that the guide you are following works for your device and to then follow the instructions carefully. To be certain that you won’t ever have to end up taking that risk though, I would recommend visiting root4phones.com. You can find guides according to your phone’s model so you can be sure that you won’t coming across any problems. I, and a few other people I know, used this before and we’ve been nothing but satisfied.

    please help me because I don’t want to trip knox.

    thanks.

    • Unfortunately there is no way until now to root Galaxy S5 on Lollipop. I suggest you to downgrade your phone to Android KitKat and then flash a rooted stock Android 5.0 Lollipop with Knox 0x0.

  15. My kernel date is september 10 2014 🙁

    • iMy kernel is 9-2014. How will I know if it worked? Tried the second code, not sure if it worked yet. I dont know if towelroot is still working with whatever or its stuck. Theres a thin line bar that periodically blinks below the screen.

    • ok, got it.
      but, if you find out there is a way…road the road let me know.

      i didnt know there would be a such thing as rooted stock Android 5.0 w/ knox 0x0. I’ll locate!

      thank you

  16. Hey there I tried rooting my Samsung galaxy s4 with towelroot and used all codes and have had no luck I’m assuming it’s because I’ve just updated my phone with the most recent android version.
    I noticed my kernel was 3.4.0-3996895.
    Android version 5.0.1
    Know 2.3
    Not sure what they all mean but am I right in saying I need to wait for a new update on towelroot to come out before I can go ahead and root my phone? Any reply to point me in the right direction would be handy thank you

    • Towelroot works on mostly devices running KitKat but if you already updated your Galaxy S4 to Lollipop, you can’t root it with Towelroot. Regarding to Towelroot there is no words that it will be updated to support Android Lollipop.

    • If you’ve recently gone thru a Android ver Update and this made it so you can’t use Towelroot due to the 4.2/3/4.× to 5.× update you can try doing a Factory Restore from the System Recovery BootLoader •• Each device will be different method to access the BootLoader menu – typically you hold a volume key and power key until the Boot menu shows up – of course u need to research the process for your “specific” device – Maybe call tech support thru your carrier and ask them how to perform the Boot Sys Recovery •• Once you’re back to a factory phone ( 4.4.× or earlier )then try Towelroot again
