re: Rooting a Galaxy S6

I have been trying for a few days to root my phone and have failed. Anyone know a good program for my PC to do it. I have tried One Click Root (they want $35), iRoot (didn't work)

re: Rooting a Galaxy S6

I'm tired of having to do a factory reset as more and more blotewear get on it. This way I can uninstall some of the apps that are rooted in the OS...too many ads popping up everywhere.

re: Rooting a Galaxy S6

I have an iPhone and don't seem to have this problem. Odd.

re: Rooting a Galaxy S6

Samsung has a bad habit of filling their phones with a bunch of *their* useless apps that we can't uninstall. Takes up space. I just ignore them, haven't had an issue yet since I can disable them to keep them from starting up with the phone.

Yah, I do the same, I just disable the apps I'm not using and don't enable the auto update for them.

Cellphone nOOb question: what does 'rooting' a phone mean? Placing it in a dish of water to help it grow roots for replanting?

re: Rooting a Galaxy S6

It means you hack the os to let you do whatever you want to the phone, such as delete the software that the os prevents you from deleting. That's a very basic description, it's more complex than that though.

You get "root"access to your device using a program.

Is that the same as jailbreaking?

re: Rooting a Galaxy S6

You "root" Android and "jailbreak" ios, they are different. Since apple ios isn't open source, jailbreaking only modifies what you can do outside of the os. Since Android is open source, you can do much more with rooting.

re: Rooting a Galaxy S6

See you learn something new every day. I thought Rooting and Jailbreaking were the same thing, just different names for different OS's
