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.


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.

Galaxy S6 SM-G920F and SM-G920I Stock Firmwares Added! 3

Galaxy S6 SM-G920F and SM-G920I Stock Firmwares Added!

For those of you with Galaxy S6 SM-G920F or SM-G920I, we have been constantly adding stock firmwares for it on our Galaxy S6 stock firmware page.

We are still adding more stock firmwares but there should be plenty enough to work with right now.  Also, you can cross-country flash another country firmware so long as you have the same model number.  For example, if you have SM-G920F German model, you can also flash the France SM-G920F firmware.  Now, so long as the country firmware you are using now doesn’t include country-specific apps (such as carrier bloatware), you should be fine.  If you absolutely need a Galaxy S6 stock firmware for your country, shoot me an e-mail at zedomax [at] gmail dot com and we will get your firmware uploaded first.
