The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has been receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow as we speak. Meaning, some of the variants have already received the update officially from Samsung and some variants are just about to receive it. So if you see no such action yet, then check out S6 Edge+ Marshmallow posts. Moving to the topic, the root procedure has now been confirmed working by some of the users. So download the files from the download section and check out how to root Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus on Marshmallow.
First, you will need to flash the CF-AutoRoot for your device using the Odin software. Once that is done, flash the TWRP listed below using the same Odin method and then flash the latest SuperSU package. The SuperSU apk file may cause lag. So if you still don’t gain root, then install the APK update binaries and uninstall it again.
Note: The recommended TWRP recovery is the Note 5 device. However, it works for S6 Edge+ without any errors.
Warning: Once you root or install a custom package, your warranty may be void and trip knox for Samsung. We at AndroidSage won’t be liable for any damage to your Android device. Reader’s discretion is advised.
