We are back with a fresh guide for all Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge owners! In this tutorial we are going to walk you through all the steps involved in rooting your Android device, but take all the necessary time to read all the preparatory steps and the risks that such a procedure involves.
Even if you are not a newbie at this chapter, if you make any mistake during the root process, you may end up in bricking your Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and we know that this is not your goal.
We also want to warn you from the start that the guide presented below is only for the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge version. So do not install this build on any other variant excepting the SM-G925P one. And among risks, you should also take in consideration the fact that using this root procedure increases your flash counter and does trip the KNOX flag to void the warranty, so use at your own risk.
However, if the decision has already been taken, we can only support you and remind you the most important preparatory steps which will make this procedure a successful one. Before getting to the rooting process, you have to make a backup of your data, charge the device and install the drivers of Samsung Galaxy S6 on your computer. Even more, USB Debugging should be enabled on your smartphone. To enable it, just go to Settings > Developer Options > Enable USB Debugging.
And keep in mind that you are performing this operation entirely at your own risk. We do not assume the responsibility of your mistakes!
