Samsung has just start selling their latest flagship Samsung Galaxy S6 the last month (Apr 2015), after few days xda developer “@chainfire“ has made CF-Auto-Root files for most variant of Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920*) except locked bootloader Galaxy S6 devices (AT&T SM-G920A and Verizon SM-G920V).
But now and after 4 weeks root has been achieved on all Samsung Galaxy S6 models without exception, mean Verizon and AT&T Galaxy S6 is also supported by using an application called “PingPong Root” thanks to xda member “@idler1984“.
PingPong Root App is a very simple application (the same as towelroot) that you install on your device like any other App, PingPong App will not only install root files on locked bootloader devices but you will root any Samsung galaxy S6 without tripping KNOX counter (KNOX: 0x0) and without computer.
- Supported Samsung Galaxy S6 build (check the list below).
- PingPong Root App beta5, beta5.1, beta5.2, beta6.
- Download and install PingPong Root App on your galaxy S6 device.
If you get Install blocked popup screen, go to: Settings > Lock screen and security then enable Unknown sources.
- Open PingPong Root Application.
- It will automatically install SuperSu App, accept installation, Open it once.
- Back to PingPong App, Tap Download Data button.
- Now, Press Get root! button.
- After few seconds you will get a popup message “Root done, it is recommended to reboot your device NOW” to inform you that your phone is now rooted.
- Hit OK, then reboot your device.
If you don’t have root access, try it again then reboot your device one more time.
To verify the root access on your Samsung Galaxy S6 install “Root Checker“ App, then launch it to hit verify root.
