CF Auto root now supports the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow TouchWiz firmware that Samsung released recently for its Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, 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.
How to Root Samsung Galaxy on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with CF Auto Root
Note: This guide and all included downloads is compatible with Samsung Galaxy devices only.
Step 1: Download the exact CF file for your Galaxy device. Extract the zip file to get the firmware with .tar or .tar.md5 extension and place at a location where you can easily locate it in your PC.
Step 2: Now boot your device into Download/Odin Mode. To do so, turn off your device completely and then press and hold Power button + Volume Down + Home keys for a few seconds. If you see a warning sign press Volume up/ Volume down to get the Odin screen.
Step 3: If you already have Odin software on your PC then simply run the Odin3.exe file. If not, then download the Odin3.zip file from here. Run Odin as administrator.
Step 4: While your device is still in the Odin Mode, connect your device to your PC using a USB cable.
Step 5: After a successful connection, the ID: COM in the Odin should turn Blue and an Added!! message should be displayed in the Log tab. In case your device doesn’t show up in Odin, try reinstalling Samsung USB drivers.
Step 6: Now click on AP button and add the firmware file by navigating to the file path. Once added, it should show like this — C:…CF-Auto-Root-zeroflte-zerofltexx-smg920f.tar
Step 7: Ensure that only Auto Reboot and F.Reset Time are selected in the Options tab. Do not check Re-Partition.
Step 8: Once done, verify everything and proceed with installation by selecting Start button.
Step 9: When you get a PASS! message in the Log tab on your Odin software, that means firmware has successfully been installed and the device will restart itself. If not then reboot manually.
That’s it. Boot your device normally and grant root access with SuperSU app.
