Root Access to T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge
The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge can now be pre-ordered on T-Mobile before its official release on April 10. Many people are eagerly awaiting the release of this device because of its high-class specifications, and which are very compatible for Android power users. The T-Mobile variant has an unlocked bootloader, so users will have more leeway for modifications. More good news awaits these users who are pre-ordering on T-Mobile because developers have created a way to customize the device through CF-Autoroot. Before proceeding with the procedure, here are some notes that you have to consider:
- This step by step guide will only work for T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925T. If you are not sure about your device model, you may check it by going to your Settings menu, pressing More/General, then clicking ‘About Device’ (or clicking Settings first, then About Device). Using this guide for another device model may cause bricking, so if you are not a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge user, do not proceed.
- Your remaining battery percentage should not be less than 60 percent. This will prevent you from having power issues while the installation is ongoing, and therefore will prevent soft bricking of your device.
- Backup all of your data and files to avoid losing them, including your contacts, messages, call logs, and media files. This will ensure that you will always have a copy of your data and files. If your device is already rooted, you may use Titanium Backup. If you already have an installed TWRP or CWM custom recovery, you may use Nandroid Backup.
- Use only the original OEM data cable to connect your device to your computer or laptop. This will prevent unwanted issues while you are flashing
- Disable Samsung Kies and other software while the Odin 3 flashtool is active. This is because Samsung Kies interrupts Odin 3 and may result in various errors in the rooting process
- Download Odin v3.10
- Download and install the Samsung USB drivers
- Download zip file for CF Auto Root
Note: The methods needed to flash custom recoveries, roms and to root your phone can result in bricking your device. Rooting your device will also void the warranty and it will no longer be eligible for free device services from manufacturers or warranty providers. Be responsible and keep these in mind before you decide to proceed on your own responsibility. In case a mishap occurs, we or the device manufacturers should never be held responsible.
