Along with the standard Galaxy S6 that has been getting official updates to Marshmallow, the S6 Edge also had the opportunity to experience it. The main reason is both these devices have comparable systems, so Sprint decided to release it at the same time. The software version is held by the two devices is also similar, differing only one digit of the phone model number, the edge variant comes with G925PVPU3CPB6 software version.
If the regular S6 has been successfully rooted with the help of a CF-Auto-Root (CFAR), then it is not much different with the Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge version that also has managed to regain superuser by using the same method, the reason as we said earlier, both devices shipped with similar software. You also have the opportunity to install the custom recovery (TWRP) after rooted, so you can also install custom ROMs thereafter.
We must thank Chainfire, the developer behind CFAR and also XDA community members who have tried the tools to their device. You need to know, at this time Chainfire doesn’t support CFAR for SM-G925P, but in fact we can still root using a package for SM-G925F, which is the unlocked version of the S6 Edge.
To regain root access after Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge updated to Marshmallow is not too difficult, but the method requires several steps that should be performed in sequence.
Here we provide an overview of how to undertake it.
- Update the phone to Android 6.0.1 or flash the stock Marshmallow firmware.
- Connect the phone to the computer via USB then flash the CFAR package for SM-G925F with Odin Flash tool, reboot to ensure it boots into systems.
- Flash stock MM recovery, and you should rooted now.
