Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Root and TWRP Recovery

Update (24 May 2016): There have been more than a few updates for Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, including our favorite, Marshmallow, and thus root methods have come and gone and gone by too. So, we are cleaning up this post to provide you a neat and clean guide on Edge Plus root, with a confirmed working root trick. If even this method doesn’t work, sure let us know via comments below.

Update (10 October 2015): Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge Plus root added. Original article continues: If you own the big brother of S6 Edge, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ then there is some news to cheer you up. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ root is now available, for most of the models. Earlier, Galaxy Note 5 root was also made available today.

As CF Auto Root no longer works on Samsung devices on Android 5.1.1 update, one has to wait patiently for a custom kernel to be developed and shared, one that is permissive type to allow root access.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ Root

Let’s discuss the root status of all major Galaxy S6 Edge+ variants here.

Update (March 6, 2016): Full root solution now available for the AT&T S6 edge Plus whose users have been craving for superuser root access since day one. Today’s is your lucky day AT&T S6 Edge Plus users!

Update (September 6, 2015): Thanks to awesome developer g.lewarne, stock Auto root kernel is now available for the S6 Edge+.

Right now, around 8 models are supported, which includes 3 international and 3 Korean models, T-Mobile and Canadian model.

While, root isn’t available for S6 Edge+ at AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and US Cellular.

International Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928C, G928F and G928i)


Korean Galaxy S6 Edge+  (SM-G928K, G928S and G928L)


T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928T)


Canadian Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928W8)


Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928P)


US Cellular Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928R4)

Not available. Until a custom kernel supporting root access comes out, wait would continue.

Verizon Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928V)

Not available. Root would not be available anytime soon probably, because Verizon locks down the bootloader of the device.

AT&T Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928A)

Available. Have fun!


Download stock Auto Root kernel for your device’s model no. from below, and then follow the guide to install it on your device.

  • TWRP recovery — Link
  • SuperSU kernel — Link
  • Odin PC software — Link | File: (1.03 MB)

Supported devices

  • SAMSUNG GALAXY S6 Edge+, all those variants whose codename is zenlte
  • Don’t try this on other Samsung device than S6 Edge+, like S6 Edge or regular S6
  • Don’t try on any other device whatsoever!

Important: Check your device’s codename on its packaging box, or in Settings > About device.


Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components. Also, this trips KNOX, meaning KNOX would stop working on your device, and thus you won’t be able to Samsung Pay, or install enterprise Apps on your device at Office.


Backup important file stored on your device before proceeding with the steps below, so that in case something goes wrong you’ll have backup of all your important files. Sometimes, Odin installation may delete everything on your device!

How to Root

Step 1. Download Odin, TWRP and SuperSU file from above.

→ Copy the SuperSU file to your device.

Step 2. Install Galaxy S6 Edge+ driver (method 1 there!) first of all. Double click the .exe file of drivers to begin installation. (Not required if you have already done this.)

Step 3. Extract the Odin file. You should get this file, Odin3 v3.10.7.exe (other files could be hidden, hence not visible).

Step 4. Disconnect your Galaxy S6 Edge+ from PC if it is connected.

Step 5. Enable OEM unlock on your device.

  1. Go to Settings > About device. And then tap on build no. 7 times or until your get the message ‘You’re now a developer’.
  2. Go back to Settings, scroll down, and tap on ‘Developer options’.
  3. Look for ‘Enable OEM unlock’ and use its toggle to enable it. Accept the warning by tapping on OK button.

— Also make sure you have disabled the Find My Mobile option completely in Settings > Lockscreen and security settings.

Step 6. Boot Galaxy S6 Edge+ into download mode:

  1. Power off your Galaxy S6 Edge+. Wait 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.
  2. Press and hold the three buttons Power + Home + Volume down together until you see warning screen.
  3. Press Volume Up to continue to download mode.

Step 7. Double click on extracted file of Odin, Odin3 v3.10.7.exe, to open the Odin window, as shown below. Be careful with Odin, and do just as said to prevent problems.

Odin 3.10.6

Step 8. Connect your Galaxy S6 Edge+ to PC now using USB cable. Odin should recognize your Galaxy S6 Edge+. It’s a must. When it recognizes, you will see Added!! message appearing in the Log box in bottom left, and the first box under ID:COM will also show a no. and turn its background blue. Look at the pic below.

Odin 3.10.6 Added message
  • You cannot proceed until you get the Added!! message, which confirms that Odin has recognized your device.
  • If you don’t get Added!! message, you need to install/re-install drivers again, and use the original cable that came with the device. Mostly, drivers are the problem (look at step 2 above).
  • You can try different USB ports on your PC too, btw.

Step 9. Load the TWRP file into Odin. For this, click the AP button on Odin and the select the TWRP file in .tar format.

Odin 3.10.6 Firmware loaded after md5 check

Step 10. Now, go to Options tab, and make sure both Re-Partition and Auto Reboot are NOT checked, while F.Reset Time only is checked. Don’t use PIT tab. Go back to Log tab btw, it will show the progress when you hit start button in next step.

Re-partition Remains Off

Step 11. Click the Start button on Odin now to start flashing the firmware on your Galaxy S6 Edge+. TWRP will be installed in a matter of seconds, after which you will see the PASS message in green background (see the pic below).

Odin 3.10.6 Pass Message Appears
  • If Odin gets stuck at setup connection, then you need to do this all again. Disconnect your device, close Odin, boot device into download mode again, open Odin, and then select the firmware and flash it again as said above.
  • If you get FAIL in the top left box, then also you need to flash the firmware again as stated just above.

Step 12. Your device will not reboot automatically, because we unchecked Auto Reboot in options tab. Now, reboot it directly into recovery mode. For this, (read this all before doing it) press and hold Power + Volume down button until screen goes off, and once it does, quickly hold and press Volume Up + Power + Home button, until you see Samsung logo.

Step 12. Your Edge Plus will reboot into TWRP recovery. If it asks, then swipe to allow for system modification. Now, to root, tap on Install, and then browse and select the SuperSU file you earlier transferred to the device. (If you forgot to transfer the SuperSU file, then try to copy it now by connecting the device and using the options in Mount menu to load internal storage.)

Next, do the Swipe action at bottom to confirm installing the SuperSU file.

Once done, tap on Reboot System button to reboot the Edge Plus.

That’s it. Enjoy the Root access on your Galaxy S6 Edge+!

    Any news on SM-G928F ROOT yet?

    • Liviu

      you found where to root SM-G928F ??

  • MkA

    I’m waiting on the same root I want to remove the boot animation for now kinda new to rooting what are the top 10 things ppl root their phones for?

  • Richard


  • Carlos

    The SM-G928M (South America), it’s compatible with G928F ?
    in other samsung devices (Note 4, S4 or S5), it’s almost the same. (But can be changed who knows..)
    Anyone has a tip please? Don’t want brick my device 🙂
    Thanks alot

    • Krishna

      Well, it could but no guarantee. Moreover, a firmware for your device G928M isn’t available either, so you won’t a firmware to flash if anything goes wrong. Do you know whether G928F firmware flashes fine on your device?

  • Bùi Minh

    The SM-9287 ( HongKong) Root yet?

    • Krishna

      None yet. Although you can try the one for G920F. in case it doesn’t work out, simply flash the current build no. firmware back and you will be good. Risk is yours.

      • Bùi Minh

        Thank Krishna, I hope G9287 will root ….
        samsung without root, like a chaotic things tidy

        • Krishna

          We will let you know once root is available for G92587.

  • Frank Skeen

    I flashed the auto root for my edge plus on tmobile, us, now im stuck on a bootloop. I followed everything step by step, this isnt my first time rooting…ive been doing this for years, i just dont know what happened. PLEASE provide a fix, or just some advice. IM FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW!!!

    • That’s strange… I will look into it and get you out of it. First, tell me your phone current build no.

    • Krishna

      Hey, have you recovered your device? It was my bad asking you for build no. when actually your device was into bootloop.
      Btw, you sure your device is T-Mobile’s variant, with model no. SM-G928T? Model no. is crucial here.
      Do let me know.
      You can flash a firmware to recovery your device. Let me know if you need help with this.

      • rene

        my phone is also on a bootloop
        and it froze on the tmoble loadup screen plz help

      • Bean

        I need help Immediately! I followed your steps and now my phone is brick. I have the G928T and this is not a very helpful root. I want the stock TAR for my device so i can unroot it! Do us all a favor by posting the flash firmware…


          • bao nguyen

            what kind of kernel you are using can you post in here or linked me a website please

    • DAVID

      Hi, I have then same problem, My device is into bootloop.

      • Krishna

        What’s your device model no.? is it still in bootloop? Don’t worry, it’s easily fixable.

        • Charlie Pena

          my device is stuck on bootloop too. mines is tmobile. i even cleared cache and nothing. problem is that everytime my phone connects to tmobiles network it reboots. but if i turn on air plane mode and turn wifi on the phone works perfect. then when i take it off air plane mode once tmobiles network shows up the phone reboots

          • Bean

            I need help Immediately! I followed your steps and now my phone is brick. I have the G928T and this is not a very helpful root. I want the stock TAR for my device so i can unroot it!

          • Matthias

            same here. is there any fix?

  • dennies

    Please for the SM9280

  • prasax

    I just bought a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge + phone on Craigslist. The device has been reset and is asking for Google Account information that was originally used to setup the phone. The seller never provided my that info and is not responding to my calls and is not traceable. Hence, I can’t access any menu on phone and can;t change any settings. Can I still install Stock Auto-root kernel and root phone to replace Samsung ROM by Custom ROM? Thanks for your help.

    • James

      I can fix

  • J

    do you have root for SM-G9287C? or can i use the root for SM-G928C?

    • Krishna

      No, don’t try 928C root file. Your model is totally different. And sadly, root isn’t available for your model yet.

      • J

        wow. lucky i asked first. thanks man. will wait for it be available then.

        • danial

          already have for sm-g9287c.. go to cf-auto-root

But we need further instructions this isn’t working still get bootloader and one time I got past the bootloader and started to activate my phone and it kept cutting off and restarting!!! I read somewhere about when u get out of download mode you are supposed to immediately go into recovery mode! HELP Please!!! T-MOBILE VARIANT!!!

  • Hiro

  • Will this root disable voice calling for T-Mobile SM-G928T?

  • Nahuel

    hello, i bought a sm-g928v, do you know how firmware i can use?

    • Krishna

      You should firmware file starting with G928V. Btw, root isn’t available, and there is no file in the above post that that could root your Verizon Edge Plus.

  • sammanosur

    Hey folks I need the Kernel for. please help I accidentally downloaded the wrong version and the phone is stuck!
    I have a Sprint Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928P) In text above says the kernel is available but its not in the list of downloadable links.

  • Sopranos

    I’ve got Canadian SM-G928W8. Says the root is available but the download is for G920W8???? and when you actually go into the link says 928-T-ODIN.tar not the W? is this the correct file for G928W8

    • The model no. is typo, don’t worry, link is correct and would root your device for sure.
      Root file is same for G928T and G928W8.
      I will correct it soon.

      • Sopranos

        Awesome,thank you very much.

  • Rayman Amin

    help whenever i connect my samsung s6 edge plus g928c to the wifi after i rooted it keeps rebooting.

    • waelawada

      I am having the same exact problem.. Were you able to fix it? Anyone knows a solution?

      • Krishna

        Reboot into recovery mode, and do a wipe cache from there. See if this helps. Let me know.

        • Philou

          not work for me “wipe cache” with G928F, exist an update to this kernel ? or other?

          • demetrius

            Im having same problem any fix?

  • Rayman Amin

    somebody please help

  • Charlie Pena

    Ok i have a tmobile edge plus yes i downloaded everything correctly yes i followed the steps yes everything went thru fine. only problem is the phone turns on and after about a minute or less the phone restarts and says “kernel is not seandroid enforcing”. idk whats going on.

    • FALKEN

      me too, please I need fix this problem

  • TrapNigga
  • Testare ters

    Used this method on my 928F and all worked fine. After first boot I noticed that it takes a really long time (1 min) to start wifi, and every time i shut it off, it wipes stored passwords. Anyone else noticed this, and is there a fix?

  • I want root on at&t!!!!! I’m so pissed that it doesn’t seem to be happening anytime in the near future…

  • Swiperdefox

    how can u get rid of the reboot loop

    • Krishna

      You will have to flash the firmware using Odin.

  • successfully rooted my 928F model but wifi connections don’t “stick” and I have to re-enter ssid passwords after every reboot 🙁

    • ok, the fix is to set edit your build. set “” to false – setting it to true stops your device storing wifi passwords

      • I mean build.prop

        • jay

          How do we dose this sir?

          • Krishna

            Doze mode is available only on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Not available on 5.1.1.

        • Filip

          how do I do it?

  • jeppe werring

    my model number is SM-G928F which i know you guys have an root for, but i live in Norway. will it still work?

    • Your physical location won’t affect the rooting process.

    • Filip

      Skjønner du hvordan man gjør det? Har akkurat samme telefon, men min begynte å skru seg av hver gang jeg koblet til wifi eller 4g…

  • G928G= ???

    • Krishna

      Well, I looked again for G928G but couldn’t find any file particularly for it. But because it’s International model like 928i and 928f, you can try the one for 928i — btw, it’s the same file for all International devices.
      In case it doesn’t work, and phone stops booting up, flashing a firmware will easily bring it back to normal. So, no risk.
      Try this file:

      • G928G= G928G, Ok! ?tudo funcionando perfeitamente, parabéns e obrigado, gostaria de saber se tem como tirar o aviso de bootloader desbloqueado?

  • G928G ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    • Krishna

      Well, I looked again for G928G but couldn’t find any file particularly for it. But because it’s International model like 928i and 928f, you can try the one for 928i — btw, it’s the same file for all International devices.
      In case it doesn’t work, and phone stops booting up, flashing a firmware will easily bring it back to normal. So, no risk. Go ahead and try the file below using the guide above. (It’s the same one for G928i and G928f.)
      Try this file:

      • arquivo img..? nao ta dando ta com nome de boot .. quaqndo coloco ele zipado da ja quando dezipo nao acha ele

  • G928G = G928F ok e perfeito, tudo funcionando perfeitamente, parabéns e obrigado, se souber como tirar o aviso de bootloader desbloqueado eu agradeço ok!?

    • quando seleciono ap nao acha o arquivo nao reconhece por que sera?

  • hi

    Has root come out for sm g9287 yet? Been waiting for a while

  • Jacob

    I am stuck in a boot loop with T-mobile S6 Edge+. It loads to my lock screen and works for a minutes and randomly reboots and continues to do this every time. Please help me, my model # is SM-G928T

    • Krishna

      Just saw your comment, you still in need of help?
      Btw, the kernel is tested and fully working. You sure you did everything right, as said in the guide above?
      Also check you downloaded the right file.

  • jay

    Hi guys I rooted successful however I would like to unroot and go back to how it was before when I brought it I have a sm-g928f but can’t find the software I need any were please help if you can it would mean a lot to me

    • Krishna

      Open the SuperSU app, go to Settings tab, and use the Unroot option. If you are looking to install an OTA update, then you would need to install stock recovery back.

    • Filip

      The root didn’t work on my sm-g928f. It reboots every time I connect to wifi or LTE


    • Krishna

      Hi, we’ve also added another kernel as an alternative. It’s simple kernel. BTW, which kernel did you try, that worked successfully?

  • JonBlaze

    Hello i just rooted my T-mobile edge plus and it is in a loop. I follwed all the steps. Please HELP! I can’t use the phone.

    • Krishna

      You can install the firmware back on your AT&T S6 Edge Plus to bring things back to stock. This will remove flashing of root stuff, and Samsung stock stuff will be back. Any warning you are getting right now will be gone.

      • First i flashing stock rocovery on SM-G928A and then flashing root file but no any change same as..

  • SM-G928A AT& T cannot root success after flashing root file from odin.. super user show su binary cannot installed..hkw to fix it.

  • Larry

    Yeah, any update with the G928a root? Same as others, everything went smoothly during the process, got the PASS, but cannot run SuperUserSU, and I ran a root checker app that says I’m not rooted. Anyone figure this out yet?

  • I have an AT&T device – G928A, followed the steps and all seemed fine, however root checker says no root access !!! ..I’m running 5.1.1

  • Larry

    You guys really fucked us here and now you’re not responding.

    • Krishna

      Well, post updated to reflect new root method, and that includes TWRP too. Try this one. Should work on all variants except AT&T, Sprint and Verizon one. Let me know.

      • Larry

        The AT&T variant is what everyone is having trouble with, but now you’re saying your new root method doesn’t work on AT&T? So nothing has changed.

      • Larry

        Come on, you gotta get back to us. Now the OTA update is available but it won’t work on my phone because of the root method you gave us! And I can’t recover from what you caused because the SM-G928A firmware (AT&T) isn’t available! So you need to be honest and just tell us if you screwed all of us over, or if you’re going to figure this out. Take responsibility.

        • Brad

          LOL..what he caused? He came to your house and rooted your phone? Take responsibility for what you illegally did to your own phone? I’m not against it but damn, you did this, you take responsibility.

  • Carlos

  • Larry
