Marshmallows-dottech [1]Rooting the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone with the CF-Auto-Root tool in this guide is going to install and enable the SuperSU application on your smartphone. You do not need to do anything with SuperSU once it is installed, although you can open the app and check out the settings available. Once it is automatically installed and enabled, it will be running for you each time you install an app that requires root access to run; the SuperSU will prompt you with a message asking if you would like to grant the app rooting permissions. Say yes to all apps you trust and say no to anything that you cannot identify. It is impossible for malware to get on your smartphone unless you say yes to it and allow it through.
