How to Root the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 edge sm-g920v

The brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 is a powerful flagship device full of impressive specs and features. Samsung added a stunning camera on the back along with a heart rate sensor, improved the fingerprint scanner and more. Last week a new Galaxy S6 root method arrived, and here we’ll explain how to root the Galaxy S6 and get even more out of the phone.

Even though the Galaxy S6 is loaded full of features and options, many users still love to root their device for additional functionality or control. Just like jailbreaking an iPhone, last week the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on Verizon and AT&T (and other carriers) finally received root access.

Rooting Android is a process that allows smartphone and tablet owners to have additional control or “Root Access” of the Android operating system. Which is usually done so owners can get around carrier or manufacturer limitations (like hotspot blocks) removing third party apps and bloatware, installing custom themes or icon packs, or to alter settings to each users own desire. Read on for the quick how to instructions, and a video for those needing more help.

The Galaxy S6 is one of the most popular Android devices today, and a new method to root Galaxy S6 has arrived that won’t mess with the Knox security, and works for all versions on almost all carriers. Not just any root either. It’s an extremely simple 1-click method that will have your Galaxy S6 fully rooted in just a few easy steps.

Last week a group called the Keen team released PingPong Root, which is a 1-click root app for a number of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge variants. This will even root the Verizon or AT&T Galaxy S6, two carriers that usually put additional things in place to make root access more difficult to achieve.

A few other methods are available, but this is the easiest one yet and won’t trip the KNOX security many use for business use. However, root will make the device more vulnerable, and will disable Samsung Pay when it finally comes in the near future. That all said, let’s get started.

What To Do After You Rooted Samsung Galaxy S6?

So, you did it. Someone told you rooting is a great thing, you checked it and realized it could be useful. After gathering all information, you decided to go for it and you successfully rooted your Samsung Galaxy S6. It makes you satisfied, but that satisfaction fades away when you ask yourself: „ What now? “

Really, what now? This question is something many people face after they completed rooting Samsung Galaxy s6. If you heard someone compares it with jailbreaking, it can only confuse you more, since the two procedures have fundamentally different reasons and results. Jailbreaking is mostly performed to allow owners to use unauthorized apps. On the other hand, rooting gives owners an opportunity to take complete control over its Samsung Galaxy S6. And once you have complete control, the question is what to do with it.

Experienced users and technology geeks will have no problems with that, but an average user has just the basic knowledge, and the fact is that once you rooted your Samsung Galaxy S6, you have limitless access to everything, and it may be a double edged sword. You may do great things with your phone now, but you may also do a huge amount of damage to it because of your lack of knowledge; and like most users you want to use better and improved Samsung Galaxy S6, and you don´t want to brick it.

What is SuperUser?

In some cases, rooting software will automatically install SuperUser to your phone. If that is not the case, installing it should be the very first thing you will do after rooting. Why is SuperUser so important? Once you have rooted your phone, you are in charge of everything that happens. There are no limits to the apps you may download, or procedures you perform.

When you download some apps, they may request access to su. The su is a short for superuser binary, and it is actually a program that converts system files into executive files. Those apps that are granted the permission to access su can modify, erase, update, or do whatever they want to with any part of the system.

To avoid that, you need SuperUser. That is an app that decides what apps in your rooted Samsung Galaxy S6 may have access to su. Basically, every app that downloads to your phone must go through SuperUser, which will then ask you for a permission to install it. It can also memorize your decisions and act according to them in the future.
