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.

Step 1. Go to Settings->About device and find your build number and see if PingPong Root supports your model.

  1. Max bro, thanks a lot for the video!! You make the the best in my opinion. I’ve successfully rooted my Galaxy S6 Edge. There is only one issue, after rooting my phone i’ve tried installing custom recovery like you suggested at the end of your video, using a flashyfy app, and image of your website. Long story short, i end up in a boot loop. Now i’ve managed to get the original firmware on using Odin, but now have Knox Tripped and No custom recovery! Can you please make a tutorial on how to flash a custom recovery after rooting with PingPong Root. Thanks a lot brother for all the help

  2. Sam says:

    Has any one successfully flashed TWRP using Flashify for a Verizon/AT&T? If so did you use the IMG file max has or did you use the file straight from the Foxify app

    • sam says:

      Edit *Flashify not foxify

    • I’ve tried IMG file from his site, end up in a boot loop! Don’t use it.. I’ve managed to restore the phone using Odin, but my knox is tripped now. Waiting on Max to help us flush the recovery right.

      • Sam says:

        Yeah I tried it too my patience got the best of me. And the same thing happened to me I have been trying to find instructions on XDA but haven’t. Hopefully Max will post some instructions

  3. messi says:

    You can’t flash custom recovery on S6 and S6 edge because its bootloaders are locked by their carrier version and AT&T. Wait until some genius unlocks or someone comes with safestrap on table other then don’t do anything that will trip knox.

  4. Iron says:

    Hey , there are some who can continue tear me when you have root with ping pong and will install TWRP will go uder my KNOX

  5. Fran says:

    Hello. How can you unroot the s6 for OTA downloads ?
    after unroot , the mobile returns to the “official” state?

    Thanks

  6. Jose D says:

    My understanding is that this method will not trip the knox flash count. But If I were to root with this method, will my phone status remain as “official” or will it change to “custom.” The reason why I ask is because I would like to root, however I would also like to be able to use Samsung Pay whenever it gets released. I doubt the application will work if the phone status is marking “custom.” And if it doesn’t get changed tk custom, will unrooting change it back to “official” or will it void the warranty with a flash count? I have the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and I’m still on 5.0.2 although there is an ota to 5.1.1 I will continue tobihnore the update as I heard it locks the boatloader. Thanks in advance.

  9. nyc2mia says:

    Thanks, Max, this is awesome! The root failed a couple of times, rebooting, instead of giving me the “Root done” message. After a couple of tries, it finally worked.

    Any news on enabling the mobile hotspot?
