Not so much surprising, as it simply is just nice to know. Android fans — who are also fans of rooting — looking to buy the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge can sleep well tonight. Chainfire announced via his Google+ profile that root for the T-Mobile Galaxy S6 (SM-G920T) and Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925T) has now been achieved via CF Auto-Root.

Really, he didn’t have to modify much, only the existing CFAR script and voila: root. He also notes that rooting will probably kill Samsung KNOX’s mobile payments on the device (there’s still Google Wallet). That being said, the phone’s aren’t even available, but you can rest assured that when they are, root is now officially waiting for you.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
