Samsung has launched its two phablet, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.We have already posted an article on How to root Galaxy Note 5.If you own a S6 Edge Plus then you are at the right place.It is a very simple easy and safe process.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus launched with Android 5.1.1 out of the box, so any previous rooting methods that worked for S6 edge like PingPong Root and CF-Auto-Root doesn’t work for the S6 Edge Plus.If you have a Galaxy S6 Edge Plus and you want to root it then, The only way to get root on Samsung’s Android 5.1.1 based firmware is to install a custom kernel with auto-root. Thanks to Odin, installing custom kernels has never been a trouble, even the noob users.

  1. After i rooted my galaxy s6 edge plus SM-928t ( T-Mobile) my phone has trouble it restart over and over I followed the instructions correctly anything can help please?

  2. Thank you for that , now I hope you can help me out with this ,after last update , my bt is not connecting right and when it dose the sound sound craking is there away of fixing this ?

    • BT –>> Bluetooth?? We currently don’t have S6 Edge Plus in our office.But don’t worry we will update a post on this.

  3. did downloading the new odin version fix the boot loop issue after rooting? also, is the “kernal is not seandroid” text normal for booting on roots now?

    • Not latest Odin.Latest Odin is v3.10 I am saying use Odin v3.9.We don’t have the device currently but we have tested it and it worked.Try with Odin v3.9 and take a backup first because you can restore your data in case anything goes wrong.

    • Hi captain Android I have noticed the same error message and wondered if there was anything I should do or just leave it alone, if you find out give us shout since its really annoying

  4. So Verizon and At&t are out of the mix. Do you know if there is a possible future routing presses for them in the making?

    • We don’t have any guide for sprint S6 Edge + So we recommend you to do a quick google search.Below we have shared a Xda Link to a thread.Check that out

      • i have the same problem when i use the wifi of my house my GS6 Edge plus restart and forgot an other time the wifi … i cant use it now … please help i cant be pay back

        • This is not a bug but it can be fixed easily.

          Edit your build. prop, you should have this
          Your WiFi does not retain the password because that line is true, change to false reboot and that’s it.

          I would have thought the author would have posted this already since the fix has been known since at least the 12th of October 2015.

          • Bro, we have 500 posts.It takes time to look through each of these.But thanks for pointing out.This will be added to the post.

    • Go into your build.prop and look for “” and change the “true” to “false” without the quotations, then reboot your phone and you should be good to go

  5. Hi, just had sort of a dumb question. How long does a root generally take? Odin said NAND Write Start! ! About 30 mins ago but nothing has happened since. That’s all, thanks!

  6. im a little lost with all of this does. I read alot about it on but I still don’t know whether rooting means the same as jailbreaking? meaning i can use the phone with another carrier after this is finished?

    • First things first: root= magically able to get rid of bloatware.

      Second, root=administrative powers on the device you purchased.

      3rd: ever wonder why you can’t Uninstaller certain apps that mine/collect all your data to sell? (Not to point but….ahem…”fakebook”)
      For this, root= now you can get rid of that trash.

      Wanna tweak your device? Run faster, better, cleaner, yep….root.

      Root= ability to run really cool apps made by others. Root=having the ability to use your device any way you want, without giving to follow forced rules etc.

      It’s worth it just to get rid of facebook though.

  7. If you have a custom recovery, download the larest SuperSU from XDA Developers and flash that in your recovery. That should take care of your superuser app not updating the binary…

  8. guys dont root… you’ll get “kernel is not seandroid enforcing” risk is that you’ll get bootloop!

  9. Im only getting “Kernel is not seandroid enforcing” after running Odin. And now I cant start my phone..
    Plz help
