    the volume down, home button and power button.
    (4) You should now see "Warning". Press the volume up button to continue.

    (8)Now locate and add the twrp-3.0.0-xxx.img.tar file (you downloaded from above) to the AP/PDA tab in Odin.
    (9)Click on "Start", this will only take a few seconds. Odin will show "PASS!" in green. Congrats you now have PhilZ Touch Recovery installed, but we still need to root our device (get SuperSU access).
    (10) Now unplug your phone and enter into recovery mode. Press and hold the volume up, home button and power button all at the same time. Keeping holding for about 15 seconds.

    (15)You should now have SuperSU installed and in your app drawer. Open up the app and select "Ok" when asked to disable KNOX.
    (16)You are done! Your Galaxy S5 is completely rooted and has PhilZ Touch Recovery installed so you can use apps like Titanium Backup and also install custom ROMS like CyanogenMod if you choose to!
