The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Edge is the latest offering from the Sammy company looking to make a successful successor to the original Note Edge that came with one Edge last year. Instead of the one down the side, they’ve developed the new 6 Edge to come with two edges for maximum viewing and usability. Even though that’s amazing around the smartphone shell, it isn’t changing anything with the performance or ROM itself. Therefore, you’ll still need to open up the system internals away from the factory restrictions, just like you would any normal Android smartphone.
As I’m sure most of you know by now, Chainfire is one of the largest names in the ‘rooting’ industry, as his tools work for almost all devices. One of the features we heard in the new Android 5.0 Lollipop was the extra security patches the Mountain View company installed to make root harder. Well, it seems that’s been no match for Chainfire because he has developed a way users can get root access before the Note 6 Edge is released. Learn how to do that after the jump.
Backup the operating system just like you would any other time you are flashing the CF-AutoRoot package because that’s the same tool was are flashing to the device today. That means you want to sync the device with Samsung Kies or use a third-party backup application from the Google Play Store. You can also use the built-in backup functionality that comes with Sammy phones.
You don’t automatically lose data like your phone contacts after the guide because we are not performing a wipe of any nature. However, sometimes things go wrong and often the easiest way out of that is to take the factory reset option. That’s why we recommend you do backup the data before starting.
The following guide will void the warranty just like any other time you open up the internal hardware away from the OEM intended. With that said, there are other developers and people who will help you for money. You juts can’t send it away to Samsung for a free repair.
You can unroot the device using a third-party application from the Google Play Store and shift back to stock Android without any custom ROM or root-requiring applications. It also moves the flash counter back to zero. Now you will send it away and the warranty will work again since the flash counter isn’t telling them you have root access.
Turn on the smartphone and navigate to the Developer Options menu where you need to enable the USB Debugging Mode. If Developer Options is a hidden menu, you should tap the build number seven times. The build number I’m talking about is the one from the About Device menu.
You should download the Samsung USB Drivers to the computer if your app fails and doesn’t work. The likely cause for this is the USB Drivers are not up to date.
