  6. Boot the Galaxy S6 Edge in download mode [5] and then connect it to the computer with the USB cable.
  7. Click the PDA or the AP button you can see from the Odin user-interface and then browse the desktop for the rooting tar.md5 file for your S5 Edge.
  8. Leave every default setting originally found from the Odin user-interface the same way without any changes.
  9. Click the Start button from the Odin user-interface and wait for the app to give you a pass message from the Odin UI on the computer.
  10. Once you can see the pass message, your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge should reboot automatically into the recovery mode.

Anyone who does not have a device boot in the recovery mode automatically will need to make that happen manually by pressing the Home + Power + Volume Up button combination during a boot-up. It won’t work if the device is already turned on and operating.
