This article is dedicated to all Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (Chinese variant) owners. If you want to get the best out of your device, then rooting is a must and we want to help you with that. With CF Auto Root, by dev Chainfire and using Odin on your Windows computer, you can easily complete this operation in less than a minute. Don’t you believe us? We are here to show you that it is possible!
Do not jump to the actual guide, before checking which Galaxy S6 Edge version you own. To check out what version you have, go to Settings > More/General > About Device or Settings > About Device and see the model number. It has to be SM-G9250 or you must stop here – the root process explained here is compatible only with the already mentioned phone.
Flashing the root file on another device might result in bricking it up and we cannot be held responsible for that. Therefore, do not try to flash the Cf-Auto-Root file from below on any other version of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. You won’t be successful, not to mention the risks of damaging your handset.
Before you connect your S6 Edge to your computer, make a backup and verify if you have the appropriate Samsung drivers installed (you can find them here). For properly establishing the connection you must also enable the USB debugging option on your device and don’t forget to deactivate the antivirus, the antimalware and the Firewall protection from your PC as they might interfere with the rooting operation.
Checking the battery status of your phone is also essential. In case your Chinese variant of Galaxy S6 Edge device goes dead during the flashing process, you risk to face another situation: it could get soft bricked and we are sure that this is not what you want either. And keep in mind that the procedure described below is considered risky and might damage your Samsung Galaxy S6. To avoid any kind of mishap, follow the tutorial carefully and at your own responsibility!
