Samsung has stopped updating the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge since Android 7.0 Nougat and for those of you who want to still get latest Android 8.1 Oreo + root, here’s how to do it. Now, this is NOT a Samsung Touchwiz firmware, rather custom ROM or AOSP(What is AOSP?) But you will get much better performance and battery life over Samsung Touchwiz plus the latest and great Android 8.1 Oreo so I don’t see why not.

Qualcomm models (U.S. & Canada) ALL have locked bootloaders (even U.S. unlocked model) so stay away from them if you want to enjoy full root.
