There is no doubt that Android phone users refuse to root their beloved Samsung Galaxy S6 edge partly since there are some problems coming along with rooting Android devices. The two major reasons are about the warranty and updating of your Android phones. After rooting, you will lose the way to access warranty and the system update will not remind you automatically. On the other hand, it may be not a bad news for everyone. Not all people are keen on updating Android frequently so they want to keep the basic status and rooting can give them right to manage their phones.

Some rooting apps are recommended in Google, but as for me, Root Genius is practical as it provides one-click way to get my Android device rooted successfully and it will list some functions on the screen after you have rooted. Let's come to have a try with this wise Root Genius.

Part 1. Root Android Device with Kingo Root

Step 1. Download and Install Root Genius. Download Root Genius on your PC and install it. Then, move to connect your Android device to computer using USB cable. Once you plug the phone into computer, you cannot disconnect it during the rooting process.

Step 2. Enable USB Debugging. Every time you connect phones to PC and launch an app, you need to set up USB debugging before or after connecting.

  • If the device with Android 5.0 or later: Tap "Settings" > "About Phone" to tap "Build number" seven times for "You are now a developer!". Then, move to "Settings" > "Developer options" to turn on "USB debugging".
  • For Android 4.2 to 4.4.4: Just try "Settings" > "About Phone", tap "Build number" for several times until you get a note: "You are under developer mode". Then, go back to "Settings" > "Developer options" > "USB debugging".
  • If it is Android 3.0 to 4.1: Find "Settings" > "Developer Options" > "USB debugging"
