How To Make Towelroot Support All Phones (Fix Phone Isn’t Supported)

By on Oct 27, 2014

Learn how to change Towelroot options and make it supports all phones. Towelroot is a simple tool created to root Android phones.Rooting with Towelroot is the simple method where you only have to download the tool and then with one click your phone is rooted.

But unfortunately a problem is reported with Towelroot. It doesn’t support all phones. This mean even though Towelroot was created to root all Android phones, it don’t seems so. Once you have downloaded the tool, open it and tap “Make It Rain” a window will appear showing you a message “This phone isn’t supported”.

Once the problem was reported, the creator of Towelroot made some changes to the tool and also made a guide how to fix, phone isn’t supported problem. According to the developer is seems to be the modstrings problem. Modstrings are a way of modifying the exploit parameters for your obscure phone.


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.

The third code is also universal, it works for all Android devices but it gives a temporary root. Once your phone is rebooted the root access will lose, but you can root it again using towelroot.

This is a simple method how to fix the towelroot problem not supporting phones. Give it a try and leave comments below.

      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 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.

      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.

      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!

    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

    • Dori

      Apr 4, 2015 at 9:42 am

      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

    May 17, 2015 at 12:58 pm

    I believe if your kernel version (like on my Galaxy S4) is dated after June 3 2014, you wont be able to do the towelroot. We’re out of luck until a fix becomes available.

    I have looked all over the Internet to try to reroot my Galaxy S5 after the lollipop update. Everything says to download TowelRoot. Even after inputting all codes, nothing has worked. I don’t want to downgrade to 4.4.2 just to root, and not be able to get the 5.0 update.

    • Dori

      Jun 25, 2015 at 9:50 am

      You can downgrade to KitKat and then root your phoone without triggering Knox. After that you can install a pre-rooted Lollipop 5.0 firmware on your Galaxy S5.
