Over the weekend, the Keen team released PingPong Root, which is a 1-click root app for a number of Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge variants. Even AT&T and Verizon models are included. But maybe more importantly, this root method doesn’t trip Samsung’s KNOX, so things like Samsung Pay (once it goes live) and other security-related features should still work afterwards.
If you are at all interested in rooting your Galaxy S6 or Edge, this method is probably your best option at the moment. All you need to do is follow a handful of simple steps, which basically involve downloading an .apk file, installing it, and then telling it to root your phone. There are another couple of simple steps in there that you will find in the video we included below.
To get to rooting, head over to this XDA thread.
