Samsung Galaxy S6 is a quality Android smartphone, which comes with a 5.1 inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display powered by 1.5 GHz Octa-core processor, along with a 3 GB RAM and it runs on Android V5.0.2 (Lollipop) operating system which is upgradeable up to Android V6.0.1 (Marshmallow). If you own this smartphone and looking for a way to gain root permissions, well then you are on the right webpage. Here, I have given a step by step tutorial to root Galaxy S6 without using a computer.
By rooting your Samsung Galaxy S6 Android smartphone, you will be able to uninstall the pre-installed applications on your device. Also, by rooting, you will able to install custom-built applications (which only supports devices with root privileges). You can also upgrade the Android firmware version in your device by installing custom ROM firmware and do a lot more things.
WARNING: Rooting your Samsung smartphone will null its warranty, and you won’t be able to claim it unless you unroot your Android smartphone. So, think well about it before rooting your device.
Step 1: Make sure that your smartphone has at least 50-60% battery backup in it before getting started with the rooting procedure. Also, make sure that you uninstall or deactivate antivirus applications in your smartphone as they tend to disrupt the rooting process.
Step 2: Next, take a complete backup of personal data like contacts, music, pictures, etc. Although the rooting procedure I have given here is not a data-loss process, to be on the safer side take a backup using an appropriate app.
Step 3: Now, enable “Unknown Sources” in your device by following this path: Settings -> Security -> Device Administration -> Unknown Sources. Without enabling this option, you won’t be able to install apps from other sources apart from Google Play Store.
Once you have finished all these prerequisites, you can move forward with the tutorial to root Samsung galaxy s6 given below.
