Chainfire, the man behind the root and SuperSU package for Android devices, has surprised us again with the CF Auto Root’s new builds. This package specially made for the Samsung Galaxy devices to gain root access via Odin mode and without a custom recovery. Now, the CF Auto root supports the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow TouchWiz firmware that Samsung released recently for its Samsung Galaxy S6, the S6 Edge, the S6 Edge Plus and the Note 5 as well. CF Auto Root makes it even easier to root the official TouchWiz Marshmallow firmware using the Odin Software.

Earlier, we showed you different method on how you could gain root access via TWRP and latest SuperSU package for Galaxy S6 and Note 5. Those methods work successfully as well. So you can try either of the two methods and make the most out of your Android device. Now, the CF auto root is only for Samsung devices. Grab the proper file for your variant from the download section and boot into Odin mode and flash the file with AP selected. Update: Root for Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and s6 edge plus all variants including AT&T, Sprint, T-mobile, Verizon, rogers, international variants, etc. is now available.

      I am afraid not. Verizon needs an unlocked bootloader. If that’s available, then you will find a root method as well. I will look into it.
