Most Galaxy S6, S6 edge models can now be rooted without tripping flash counter

As of late, it hasn’t been easy rooting Samsung devices. We’ve long had to deal with a flash counter to prevent warranty returns on rooted devices, but with the more recent addition of KNOX security, it’s been even tougher. It looks like developers have been quite successful at rooting the Galaxy S6, but the previous root methods would set off the flash counter, voiding your warranty permanently. Thankfully, a new method released in beta form can now root most Galaxy S6 and S6 edge models without touching the flash counter, which is an impressive feat. The root method is called PingPongRoot ans is now available for you to try!

If you want to give it a shot, and be aware that rooting runs a risk of damaging your device so do so cautiously, hit the source link and make sure it works on your device first. And if you want something more streamlined, you might want to wait for a few more updates to be released. This is in beta, after all.
