No matter whether the flatter Samsung Galaxy S6 or the curvy Galaxy S6 Edge+, they both include so many pre-loaded apps. If you want not only to disable the pre-loaded apps but to remove them for good, then rooting your device is an optimum choice. As you may have already known, rooting is a process of getting administrative rights on your phone, which enables you to delete the pre-loaded apps from your device when the process is completed. Are you interested? Then let’s get started with the rooting journey.
At the very beginning, you need to get the Superuser icon in your app drawer. On top of it, there are a few things you would like to bear in mind:
- The guide is based on a Windows PC.
- Only applies to International versions or T-Mobile of the phones at present.
- Before rooting, ensure that you have backup important data.
- Two secure features, Samsung KNOX, and Samsung Pay may be disabled after rooting.
- Fix it now if your Samsung Galaxy S6 won’t turn on?
- Fix Odin Mode in a Samsung Phone as well.

1. Get the Samsung USB Drivers on your Windows PC and install it.
2. Navigate to Settings -> About device and note down the Model number.
3. Go to the AutoRoot homepage, find the model number and then “download” it.

5. Extract the downloaded file on your desktop.
6. Locate the Odin exe package, right-click it and open it as administrator.
7. Back to your phone, head to Settings -> About device and keep tapping on Build Number until you are informed to be a developer.
