root galaxy s6 supersu marshmallow

Samsung has finally started rolling out the official Marshmallow firmware for its two former flagship phones, the Galaxy S6 SM-G920F and Galaxy S6 edge SM-G925F. The update can be obtained via OTA. To check if Samsung has made the update available for your phone, go to Settings > About Device > Software Update and tap on Update Now. If the update is available, you will be able to download and install it. If not, then you can flash the official Marshmallow firmware on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

Now, if you updated your Samsung Galaxy S6, you can make it even better by rooting it and installing SuperSU. Even though the firmware has been available for a few days only, developers have already created custom kernels with root support for the Galaxy S6 Marshmallow firmware.

Root is the next step on making your Android phone better. With root access you can use apps that you cannot normally use, backup and restore applications and improve the performance by overclocking the processor.

How to root Marshmallow firmware

Download the SpaceX kernel and move it to a folder on your computer. Download SuperSU and move the APK file to your phone’s internal storage. Download Odin as well and extract the zip file.

  1. Turn off your phone. Press the home, power and volume down buttons at the same time to go to download mode. Connect your phone to your computer using a USB cable.
  2. Open Odin, click on AP and select the SpaceX kernel file (SpaceX-Kernel_MM_RC1_G920F_Test.tar.md5 & SpaceX-Kernel_MM_RC1_G925F_Test.tar.md5).
  3. Wait for the kernel to install.

The phone will then restart. Open your file manager and install SuperSU APK. Now you will have complete root access.

    what about the “boot.img” file ? do I need it or is it unimportant ? (there must be a reason for it.. or why is it in this folder? )

    • We haven’t messed around with “boot.img” as we haven’t ever needed it.
