How to root Samsung Galaxy S6 on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow [Guide]

Sony-MarshmallowAnyone who roots Android operating systems once ever so often will probably already know who the developer Jrummy is by now. Jrummy has a name that is catchy, and he is the owner of the ROM Toolbox — an app that is even more unforgettable. Jrummy himself is a good man too, and will gladly help you with troubleshooting if you ever need help. You can see him telling you to get in contact with him if you require any assistance with the ROM Toolbox page. He also has an excellent website set up explaining everything about his apps and what they do. I’ll try to give you a brief description, so you don’t have to click around the World Wide Web to find out what the ROM Toolbox is all about if you are looking for a summary.

The ROM Toolbox is a definite must have application for root user, and it takes away much of the need to follow guides that I like to write every day. Knowing that, you would think that I might not like the guy, but that is not true at all. Okay, so there is a little animosity there, but underneath it all is an app that is so good that I wouldn’t want to keep it hidden from you. The ROM Toolbox app is genuinely your one stop shop for everything you will ever need to flash a new ROM on your device.


  • The following guide has been written with the Samsung Galaxy S6 with SM-G920S model numbers in mind and should only be followed for that model number. The rooting tool we are using is the CF-Auto-Root package and it is usually made for each model number of a device in the Samsung range. The developer of this rooting tool also says that your device will most likely be bricked if you flash this file on any other model number.


  • Unlock the hidden Developer Options menu on your Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone so you can get to the USB Debugging Mode during the next step. You can unlock it by tapping on the Settings application > About Device and then repeatedly tap over where it shows you the build number until it says you are now using the S6 smartphone as a developer.
  • Now that you have enabled the Developer Options menu, you need to enter the same by tapping on the Settings app again, followed by the Developer Options menu. Once done, scroll down and then check the box for the USB Debugging Mode. Now leave the Developer Options menu and it will remember your preferences automatically.
  • Download the Samsung USB Drivers to the computer and install them before you start with the guide or else your device will not be detected by the flashing tool and nothing will work.
