do you know a good walkthrough (easy enough for n00bs?) or possibly a contact/store where this can be done?
i asked 2 stores in etobicoke today about rooting and they dont do it.
If the Samsung store won't do it for free you should tell them that they shouldn't sign contracts with the carriers that prevents them from selling phones directly to the customers in Canada.
Unlike Iphones, you cannot buy any factory unlocked phones from Samsung directly in Canada. I found out about this nonsense when I tried to buy the S5 directly from Samsung for full price.
Anyway..... After everything I have been through I will either switch to a nexus phone or iPhone the next time I upgrade.
If a manufacturer depends entirely on the carriers to sell their products and managing updates they simply don't deserve my money.
As for my S6, I currently got Rogers to take it to their repair centre to fix phone. Hopefully they will be able to fix it or else I will have to root S6.
still waiting for the latest update, been 6 weeks now, been talking to rogers but they still think there is a update coming coming from samsung, im on 5.1.1 build (OK5). im looking for some info about this because this has been brutal trying to fix my issues. i have a open ticket which has been issued for a week now and still no body has call me about my lost data, texting issues, drop calls. i have my cell on gsm where thats the only way my phone works. HELP!!!
