Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is currently my favorite phone because of it’s looks and the glass finish & today I will show a tutorial to root Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925F. Like all Samsung tutorials, this one will too have Odin tool.
*Edit: there’s now an easier way to root Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 edge. Read this post on how to root Samsung Galaxy S6 with PingPong Root application.
You need not to worry with the name of Odin because it is very easy and all you have to do is press some buttons and you are rooted. We will be downloading some files too, but that are too maximum 30-40 MB approximately and this will not take more than 10 minutes to root and if you have ever used Odin, then not even 5 minuets!
This is only for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925F Running on Stock Android 5.0.2 Lollipop [zerolte] on LRX22G.G925FXXU1AOCV build ID.
Now let’s move on to our topic and let’s begin with downloads first!
