How to Root Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge! - Page 3


Step 7. After unzipping, double-click on Odin3 v3.10.6.exe to run the ODIN program.


Step 8. Make sure you see a blue-highlighted box with a random COM number.  If you see this, you have proper Galaxy S6/S6 Edge Windows drivers.  If you do not see this, download and install Galaxy S6/S6 Edge Windows drivers and run the driver program to install.  Then you should see it.

Next, choose “AP” then select the CF-Auto Root file you unzipped in Step 5.


Step 9. Hit “Start” and this will start the flashing of CF-Auto Root to your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge.


Step 10. When done, you should see “RESET!” on ODIN  program and your S6/S6 Edge will reboot to show something like below.  This is where CF-Auto Root roots your S6/S6 Edge.


Step 11. Once rebooted, you should find a new app called “SuperSU” in your app drawer.


Step 12. You can verify you have full root by installing and running a root app like Titanium Backup app.  If you see superuser request window like below, congrats!  You have successfully rooted your Galaxy S6/S6 Edge!



Q: Can I still get OTA updates after using this root method?
A: Yes, you may have to unroot and remove root while taking OTA, you can unroot easily by using the SuperSU app.
