Root privileges are the powers that are granted to whoever has control of the root user account on Android. The Android operating system always has the root user account there, but it is not available by default like it typically is from Linux. You need to rely on tools like SuperSU that is installed by CF-Auto-Root to help get you there.
Here is everything you need to root Samsung Galaxy S6 SM-G920T1 smartphones running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow software updates with the CF-Auto-Root tool:
- You need to have the Samsung Galaxy S6 device that is given the SM-G920T1 model number to flash the rooting file found in this guide.
- You need a computer that runs on a version of the Windows operating system to flash the rooting file with the Odin application.
