    Well, I know hardly anyone roots their phone, even guys here, but if you're in the minority who are interested in doing so, take note of the following.

    DO NOT root any AT&T or Verizon-branded Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ units. The carriers have added a "security feature" that renders the phone softbricked when root access is successful.

    While this won't affect the majority of users, if you're into rooting, I'd suggest getting an unlocked unit or one from T-Mobile/Sprint.

    I'm not sure I believe this. Knox does create issues with rooting, but there has always been a work around.

    "Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ flagships will officially hit stores Friday. But if you are a Verizon or AT&T subscriber who is used to rooting smartphones, beware. Rooting these carrier models of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ will shut down your phone completely.

    The Verizon and AT&T models have a carrier specific mechanism, which is apart of the Samsung Knox Security Suite, Samsung Knox director of business development Ram Motipally detailed to iDigitalTimes at a recent briefing in New York prior to the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ launch. “In most of the U.S. devices, if you root the device the device won’t even boot up; if it’s AT&T or Verizon,” he said."
