Rooting S6 SM G920F and S6 Edge G925T, G925F or G925I was quiet easy a few months ago. But Samsung regularly sends OTA updates to their devices so that they can’t be easily rooted. Apps like PingPongRoot were used earlier to root Samsung S6 devices but now it doesn’t work at all. Similarly their are numerous guides on how to root Samsung galaxy S6 and S6 edge but none of them seems to be working when i tried them.
I also visited many popular websites but they were all outdated. Many of them do not show how to disable “Custom Binary (Recovery) Blocked by R/L” which blocks you from flashing any file using ODIN. I have a Samsung S6 edge SM-925I and after doing lot of reasearch, i finally found a way to root my Samsung S6 Edge SM-925I by disabling Custom Binary (Recovery) Blocked by R/L error message. So i decided to share this guide with S6 edge users who are looking for a better working guide and wants to root their Samsung device. So let’s start,
Before You Proceed:
