Having full write permissions over the root directory on the Android operating system is known as having root access. It means the apps you install now have the chance to access that same directory which allows them to do more things than they could do without it. That is the sole reason why so many root apps are deemed as better and stronger than the apps that do not require root access.
Here is what is necessary to root Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ SM-G928I smartphones running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow by flashing the CF-Auto-Root tool:
- You do need to have a computer that is operating on a version of the Windows operating system for this guide to work.
- You need the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ device that comes with the SM-G928I model number to use this guide.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- Make sure the computer you are using in the guide already has the Samsung USB Drivers installed on it.
- The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ SM-G928I handset should have the Developer Options menu unlocked and the USB Debugging Mode should be enabled from the Developer Options menu if your device does not have that done already.
- Note that Chainfire had the MMB29K.G928IDVU2BPC3 firmware build number running on his Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ SM-G928I device but that does not mean that you necessarily need to have it running on your device. He gives the information of the firmware he had running so you can use it as an indicator.
