Root a previouisly Verizon S-5

So, I have an S-5 Galaxy that was a Verizon phone - and I want to root it...

I've looked at various protocols and it appears that the best bet is to use ADB and Sueme...

But, I don't really know what I'm doing here. Any suggestions or links to a step-by-step set of instructions?

The issue I have is that it was a Verizon phone, now switched to a Total Wireless plan (owned by Cricket, I think) as a burner phone.

I picked it (the S-5) up because the S-5 can be used as a Mobile Hot Spot. I wanted to turn it on in Mobile Hot Spot mode and use it to connect the laptop for GPS/mapping/position reporting for trip. But, the Verizon firmware, or something, is not allowing ne to start the mobile hot spot...

I figure if I root it I should be able to install a Mobile Hot Spot App or something that bypasses Verizon's firmware/software...

Thoughts?

You can find instructions on XDA developers. Find the forum for your phone model and there will be instructions to root your phone.

Send me a pm if your can't find it

Every Verizon (Android) phone I've ever had the hotspot was locked out.

Do not go to any other site to either learn how to root your phone, or download the means to do so. XDA is the resource.
