For this rooting problem, I have checked so many informations before. "Rooting" seems a little complicated and technical. However, it's really simple. The most important thing is to find a secure and easy tool for free rooting.You can follow these steps:
Before rooting, you have to get some preparations:

* Get **iRoot** downloaded and install it on your phone or tablet


* Activate USB debugging mode and unknown sources


* Make a full backup of your contacts, SMSes and call logs

Move to the full tutorial on how to root your Android device with iRoot. Here we take iRoot for PC for example. If you need to root without computer, please choose iRoot APK.

Step 1. Download and install iRoot on your computer.
Connect your phone to your PC
Detect the device and click on "Root Now".
Done!
Hope you have succeeded now.

On your computer access this page and download the pre rooted kernel.
Save the file on desktop and don’t unzip.
Connect your SGS5 with your computer by using the USB cable.
Transfer the root package on your smartphone.
Unplug the USB cable.
Turn off your phone.
Enter recovery mode on your Android device: press and hold power, volume up and home buttons at the same time.
From recovery tap on Install and load the root file that is now placed on your phone.
Follow on screen prompts and resume the installation process.
When done, reboot by selecting “reboot system now”.
If a boot loop will be issued, return to recovery and select “wipe data factory reset” and “wipe cache partition”.
