How to Root Galaxy S6/S6 Edge on Android 5.1.1!

For those of you who want to root your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, you will want to follow a different root method as Google has changed how rooting works with newer Android 5.1.1.  Due to Android 5.1.1 changes, you can no longer root your S6 or S6 Edge without causing it to soft-brick.  But there’s a work-around, this goes back to the days of older Android ICS and Gingerbread where we flash a modified kernel to make root possible.  It’s unfortunate that the newer Android 5.1.1 makes rooting more complex but it is still doable with a custom kernel.

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Stock Firmwares for Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925F! 0

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Stock Firmwares for Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925F!

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow stock firmwares have begun to roll out.  If you are rooted or need to upgrade manually (using ODIN and stock firmware, follow our unroot directions), you can grab these stock firmwares yourself and flash.  Please see updated Marshmallow stock firmwares on our Galaxy S6 Edge stock firmwares.  If you are rooting and installing custom ROMs, it may be a good idea to always have the original copy of the stock firmware for your model of Galaxy S6 Edge handy just in case something goes wrong (that way it will save you time to restore your phone).   Also, rooting the Marshmallow stock firmwares can be seen here.

How to Turn Galaxy S6 into S6 Edge! [VN ROM]

Want to turn your Galaxy S6 into an S6 Edge?  There’s a ROM for that called VN ROM.

Based on latest Android 5.0.2 SM-G925F firmware, VN ROM brings you S6 Edge features like Edge Lighting and People Edge to your Galaxy S6.

The best part?  You can install this ROM on any Galaxy S6 model except AT&T and Verizon (as they have locked bootloaders).  I was able to install it just fine on my T-Mobile Galaxy S6 SM-G920T (but you will lose WiFi calling since this is an international ROM although you will have all language support).

How to Root AT&T/Verizon Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge! [PingPong ROOT]

For those of you who have been waiting for root on your AT&T/Verizon Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge(SM-G920A/SM-G925A/SM-G920V/SM-G925V), we have some good news for you, there’s now a new root method called “PingPong Root” that will root it easily within 5 minutes.

This will also work on many other variants of Galaxy S6/S6 Edge and will not trip KNOX.  If you don’t need custom ROMs, you can also use this root method to give your S6 or S6 Edge “root” only.

TWRP Recovery & Root Available for Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925P!

For those of you who want to root your Sprint Galaxy S6 SM-G925P, we have good news for you, TWRP recovery (that works) is available now, you can grab it on our Galaxy S6 Edge TWRP Recovery page.

This is actually TWRP recovery for the Chinese SM-G9250 model but developers and users have confirmed it works fine on the Sprint Galaxy S6 SM-G925P.  Previous TWRP recovery for other variants for some reason caused problems but this TWRP should get you up and rooted easily along with ability to backup, restore, and install custom ROMs.  So, definitely give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know how it goes for you!

SM-G925F and SM-G925I S6 Edge Stock Firmware Added! 0

SM-G925F and SM-G925I S6 Edge Stock Firmware Added!

For those of you looking for Galaxy S6 Edge stock firmwares, we have added most of SM-G925F European and SM-G925I South American stock firmwares to our S6 Edge Stock Firmware page.  If you see any country firmware missing, don’t worry as we are working around the clock to update them all but you should find most of them available now.  Also, if you do not see a firmware for your country, you can also use any other country firmware so long as your model number matches.  For example, you can use Germany SM-G925F firmware if you have Spain SM-G925F.  Since all of the firmwares support all languages, you should have no problems as long as you change the language after installing them.
