Step 5. Power off your phone then hold down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 5 seconds until you see a warning screen like below:

Hit the Volume Up key to put your phone into ODIN Download mode then connect a microUSB cable from your phone to your computer.  You will need a Windows computer or use VMWare to run Windows on Mac or Linux.

Step 6. Download all the files you need for rooting.

  • Download SuperSU v2.52 ZIP (do not unzip) – Link
  • Download ODIN ZIP (unzip into a folder) – Link
  • Download Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge/Note 5 USB Drivers – Link
  • Download SpaceX Kernel for YOUR MODEL – Link (file ending in tar.md5)
  • Download TWRP for YOUR MODEL (do not use the one off TWRP’s main site at TWRP.ME as they are not yet compatible with Marshmallow) – Link (file ending in tar.md5)

You can see I choose the SM-G920F folder for SpaceX Kernel and TWRP recovery below since I have SM-G920F model number.

Download both the kernel and TWRP files ending in “tar.md5”.

Step 7. Double-click on the ODIN exe file to run ODIN program.

Step 8. Make sure you see a blue highlighted box with a random COM number.  If you don’t see this, that means you don’t have the proper drivers installed so go ahead and run the driver EXE file then disconnect/reconnect your microUSB cable.

    For some reason when I try to root my phone, Galaxy s6 sm-g920f 6.0.1 Buildnr G920FXXU3DPBQ, I get stuck on Get pit for mapping. I had the same problem when using Android version 5.1.1 How can i resolve this issue? What am I doing wrong I follow the guide to the letter. I have rooted before on my s2 s4 and note 4 without any problems. But cant seem to figure out what to do. Please help me out.

    Great tutorial.. Thanks!

  26. YvZ says:

    Nice tutorial thx but OTA updates don’t work anymore, how do we fix this problem?

    • Samier says:

      I`m afraid there will be no fix .. OTA updates only function when you have the original Firmware on the phone,,as soon as you change something (custom kernel) it will be detected and the OTA function will be disabled..because of this damn KNOX feature 🙁

  55. Javier says:

    I have a galaxy s6, with

    Android: 6.0.1
    Model: SM-G920F
    Baseband: G920FXXS3DPC2
    Kernel: 3.10.61-7025264
    Build number: MMB29K.G920FXXS3DPF5
    Knox: 2.6

    Can it be rooted. Im from spain, hope someone can help me please. Thanks.

  56. Erik says:

    Could someone please help me? I did everything correctly until I had to hold down the volume up, down, home and power button, because that leaded me to a green screen. I couldn’t press anything, so I tried to turn it off. Now whenever I try to turn on my phone, I see the logo, then it’s blinking that same green screen once, and everything is pitch black. I have no idea whether my phone is on or off at this point. I would really like to fix my fucking phone again. Or complete the rooting. Thanks.

  57. Mats says:

    I can’t reboot by holding vol up, home and power, so I get into the TWRP screen, I can only reboot by holding both vol up and down, home and power, but when I enter the Samsung screen and let go of power, it just continues to reboot without entering the TWRP screen where I can install supersu

    Still wondering if they’ve come out with a G925A At&t one yet… Are there any out there for this model?

  74. Robert says:

    I have SM-G920V. Depressing, I know. I have been sitting waiting wishing now for months hoping someone would find a way to root this device after the update (which my phone had when I purchased it). Any indication as to this happening at some point? I see it is possible for the S7 Verizon variant, so rather frustrating. Should I just stop holding out hope on this and move on with my life, lol?

  75. Steve Holsten says:

    Where’s the 925T root info?

  76. James Sr says:

    Okay, I don’t see a file for SM-G920T. My question is can I use the one made for the international model SM-G920F. I ask because I know own some roms and firmware is interchangeable.

  77. Dan says:
