Samsung only just released their new flagship lineup , and the developers have already developed a root package for it. For those who are new to rooting, ket me tell you in brief what rooting is.
Rooting is the process of allowing people using smartphones and tablets or any other devices running Android OS, to attain privileged control over various Android subsystems. This process is similar to Jailbreaking in the iOS domain. Both these techniques are carried out for the sole purpose of removing the limitations put onto our devices by either the manufacturer or Mobile Network Operator.
Now that the pleasantries are done with, lets get down to business –
In order to root your new Galaxy S6, there are a couple of things you need, such as the Root Toolkit, Odin software, and the .tar file of the concerned device.
Once you have these utilities in your possession , you can start the rooting process –
A short disclaimer before I give you the steps – Whatever happens while you are rooting your device is your responsibility, and neither me nor anyone else at ClassifiedTricks.com is responsible for any sort of damage that may occur to your phone.
Lets get started –
- Download the auto root tool kit for the Galaxy S6. I must give credit to the Chain Fire group for the tool kit this soon .
- Once the download is finished, open the file in WinRAR and extract it onto your desktop.
- Check for the presence of the following files – CF-Auto-Root-********.tar.md5
- Run the Odin.exe file on your computer. Odin is basically the tool you will require to flash stock Roms onto your Samsung devices.
- next, boot your S6 into Download mode – To do this, press the Volume Down + Power + Home buttons together and once you see the download screen, press Volume Up to continue.
- Once the phone is in download mode, attach your device to the PC via the USB cable. Once the phone is detected by the PC, it will show up on the Odin software.
- Click on the PDA button on Odin and locate and select the CF-Auto-Root-*********.tar.md5 file.
- Next, in the option section of the Odin software, uncheck the Re-Partition box. This is as far as the settings are concerned.
- Click on the start button to start flashing the CF-Auto Root onto your Galaxy S6.
Once you see the Pass or Reset message in the Odin window, your Phone will reboot into recovery and install the root. After one more final reboot, you will have a freshly rooted Galaxy S6 in your hands.
