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.
