If your build number is listed above, you're ready to go. First up, you'll need to make sure your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge is set up for sideloading apps. To do that, head to Settings, then "Lock screen and security," and make sure that the "

" option is enabled.

At this point, you're ready to install PingPong Root. Point your Galaxy S6's web browser to

to download a copy of the APK installer file.

When the file is saved to your device, tap the "Download complete" notification to launch it. From here, tap "Install," then you may receive a warning message that this app contains code that attempts to bypass Android security mechanisms. This is exactly how PingPong Root works, so it's nothing to be alarmed about. Just tick the box next to "I Understand," then press "Install Anyway" if you see this message.

When that's finished, tap "Open," then after a few seconds, Android's installer interface should come up again. This time it's asking you to install SuperSU, which is a root management app from developer

. So tap "Install" again, and when that's finished, press "Done" to head back to PingPong Root.

Once you're ready to root your device, tap the "Get root!" button. From here, you'll see a message that tells you to "Please Wait!!"—take heed to this message and don't interact with your phone while the root process is running. After about 30 seconds, a message will appear informing you that the process was completed. At this point, reboot your phone as soon as possible.

Next, SuperSU will ask how you'd like to update your binaries. Select the "Normal" option from this menu, then give it about 30 seconds to update your binaries. When the process has finished, tap "Reboot" on the confirmation dialog.

If for some reason you are not rooted at this point, run PingPong Root again (beginning from Step 3), only this time, place your device into Airplane mode prior to starting.
You can install a custom recovery now, but be aware that this will trip your KNOX counter.
