The Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge G925F/G925I
The Galaxy S6 Edge is one of Samsung’s best and most eye-catching devices so far. The two-edge display has caught the attention of users world-wide and makes the S6 Edge stand out from the competition. Samsung has also given the S6 Edge some great specifications that can help users get the best of Android Lollipop which it already runs.
If you are an Android power user, the only thing missing from the Galaxy S6 Edge is the ability to tweak and customize the device. The way gain this ability is to have a custom ROM and root access on your device.
In this post, we are going to show you how you can get the latest version of TWRP custom recovery on the Galaxy S6 Edge G925F and G925I. We will also show you how to root it. Follow along with our guide below.
Prepare your phone:
- This guide should only be used with a Galaxy S6 Edge G925F or G925I. Using this guide with other devices will brick the device. Check your device’s model number by going to Settings>System>About Device.
- Charge phone to at least over 50 percent so you don’t run out of power before the process is through
