Enable developer mode by going to "Settings", "Security" and checking "Unknown sources".
Click here to download the APK.
Install the APK by running it from "Downloads".
Run the installed app from your app drawer
Click the button that says "Make It Ra1n".
The phone reboots and you now have root access!
Install your favorite root app from the Play Store, such as SuperSU.
This worked perfectly for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5. I am successfully running root apps, like Root Explorer, plus the Xposed Framework is installed.
