    I have tried several methods to root Samsung S5 G900 on ATT including towel root, kingroot and one click root. I am always able to download the app but it says rooting for my phone is not supported. What am I doing wrong?

    I think it depends on which Android version you are on. If you are on 5.0 I don't think root is possible yet.

    Can I do factory reset (I believe Kit Kat) and then root from there? Or will ATT stop me?

    Unfortunately the factory reset was to 5.0. Only reason why I want to root is to allow SD card to adopt internal storage. For some reason, ADB cannot find the disk on my phone.
