Being the root user on your Android operating system is what allows us to use the OS with full privilege control. The root user can install any of the apps from the Google Play Store that are locked by Google not because of any moral high ground but rather because they simply cannot run yet. Android developers block the would-be root user because they have no other choice if they want to deliver the devices to you guys with a level of security that is sufficient enough to keep the oldest of your fathers safe when browsing online. The way they do this is by essentially allowing you to download malware and securing that malware, so it is impossible to move around the operating system. However, in doing so, they also take away the ability to be a root user.
It’s not as bad as it sounds because people can become root users should they choose, it just takes a little work in getting there. Chainfire is who I would call the most popular man in the Android rooting world, and he’s likely still alive today not because of his technologically advanced force field, but rather the government and corporations do not hold much against him. Chainfire is responsible for the work behind SuperSU, which is the number one way for people to root any Android operating system. People can usually install a version of SuperSU from a custom recovery, and they now are the root user thanks to the SuperSU being correctly installed and enabled on the operating system. Another way–and an arguably better way for many Samsung device owners–is to install an appropriate version of the CF-Auto-Root tool which installs and enabled the SuperSU in its unique one-click rooting method kind of a way which happens by being flashed on your device from the Odin flashing tool.
- The following guide is made for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone with the SM-G925F model number when it is running on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates. You can check the model number and what Android software versions your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone is running by tapping on the Menu > Settings > About Device.
- You need to have a computer that is running a version of the Windows operating system to use this guide because of the Odin flashing tool which is made by Samsung developers.
- You need to install a custom recovery on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925F smartphone before you can follow this guide to install and enable SuperSU on the smartphone. The custom recovery we have on hand is the ClockworkMod Recovery, but you can install Team Win’s TWRP Recovery if you prefer. Just head over to the TWRP website and scroll down the list of devices until you see the TWRP build available for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and then flash it the same way with the Odin flashing application.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- Unlock the Developer Options menu on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone by tapping on the Menu > Settings > About Device > Build Number. Tap on the build number at least seven times and if you watch the display, you will see a message quickly appearing that says you are using the device now as a developer. That is the message that is letting you know that you have the Developer Options menu unlocked.
- Enter the Developer Options menu now by tapping on the Menu > Settings > Developer Options and then check the box that is available there for the USB Debugging Mode so that it is now turned on completely. Navigate out of the Developer Options menu and then the Android operating system will remember your preferences because it is good like that.
