T-Mobile Galaxy S6 SM-G920T Gets Android 5.1.1 Lollipop root, Here is how to root

Here is a step-by-step tutorial to root T-Mobile variant of the Samsung Galaxy S6 SM-G920T running on the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware.

For the purpose of this tutorial, we’re going to use the cf-auto root method by the recognized Xda developer, Chainfire. If you’ve been previously experiencing issues while rooting your phone, this time, you won’t experience any problem as cf-auto root kernels have been updated and are compatible with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware.

You should know that rooting your phone using cf-auto will trip Samsung Knox count and ultimately voids device warranty, but you always get benefits when having root access.
