Just a months back Samsung have accounted its one of the best smartphone of its Galaxy series S5. An Android based smart phone is much liked by its users and got good response within a month after launch. There are many Geek's that tweaks with the android to make it more flexible. With this some of the developers and techie guys root the Android to access some of the restricted feature on Android.

 What is Android Rooting?
“Rooting” your device means obtaining “superuser” rights and permissions to your Android’s software. With these elevated user privileges, you gain the ability to load custom software (ROM’s), install custom themes, increase performance, increase battery life, and the ability to install software that would otherwise cost extra money

Many of them have reported that they have gained the root access on the Samsung Galaxy S5, but a couple of the carrier variants including the developer edition of Samsung Galaxy S5 for Verizon and At&T hasn't been notified as rooted.

So on this, the senior members of XDA developers in collaboration with the group of Verizon and AT&T customers have started a Crowd funded Bounty program for achieving the root on Verizon and AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 devices.

Bounty is of total $17,600, and the first person who will provide a working technique for rooting Verizon device will be awarded $9,970.00 and for AT&T the awarded amount is $7,700.00.

This they of reward program encourage the hacker and developer to find the security loop holes in system, and nowadays many of the organisation is having a bug bounty program for their products.

To get in details and reporting the research on this XDA developer have mention some basic points to be followed before reporting the issue-
  • Be the first person to create or find a method to achieve the following:
  • Exploiting a fully stock VRU1ANCG build to gain root access
  • Make a post in this thread with the following:
  • Proving it works with appropriate photos and/or screenshots and
  • Providing full step-by-step instructions for which anyone else can follow.
  • Wait for at least one member to follow the same method and confirm it works the same on their fully stock device with VRU1ANCG build.
  • Claim your bounty via PM from pledger(s).
Hope this target will achieved soon and will get more advanced and innovative technique for rooting Android.
