4. Reboot and profit!
Now, there’s actually no root available with Android 5.1.1 firmware yet as the system structure is slightly different and there seems to be extra security mechanism that we have not figured out yet (we figure it’s KNOX, what a pain in the ass). Don’t try to flash SuperSU zip file as you will end up in a bootloop.
If you need root or you want to go back to Android 5.0.2, simply reboot into TWRP recovery and restore your backup. If you forgot to make a backup ROM, you can also download Android 5.0.2 stock rooted ROM on our S6 Edge Stock ROMs page. But you will have to do a factory reset if you are going back to Android 5.0.2 from Android 5.1.1 as it will mess up your data partition so please MAKE A BACKUP ROM if you want to keep your settings and not start over from beginning.
