    Hello, Im on Model Number SM-G920W8 with Baseband G920W8VLU2AOG2. Its a Canadian model with a regional carrier. Is it possible to root this device? I want to stay on the 5.0.2 software, and have it rooted. As well, I found this tutorial, but wasnt sure if it was up to date:

    http s://boycracked.wordpress. com/2015/05/18/root-twrp-recovery-for-samsung-galaxy-s6-s6-edge-sm-g920-sm-g925/

    Is this a working root method?

    If it matters, Im using a windows Vista computer. But I also have access to Windows 10 computers if need be.

    Thanks!

    But sadly it appears you have taken the 5.0.2 update that closed the loophole that was being exploited to gain root access.

    You would need build number G920W8VLU1AOCG to be able to root.

    OK, thanks for the info, I guess I'll have to wait for a new loophole to be found to root. Kind of a bummer.
