I have Galaxy A5 (SM-A500H) When I was on Lollipop I rooted it using kingroot apk. Yesterday I upgraded to 6.0.1 from sammobile. And it has
SS/pc not sure if that prevent rooting or anything like that, I'm using Uzbekistan's version.
Kingroot apk no longer works, it gets to 65% then tells me that no rooting strategy works. Kingroot exe seems to be offered exclusively in Chinese these days so I cannot use it.
The chainfire version doesn't work, if I use it, I get a little red warning on booting screen that I have breached the warranty or something like that, I don't care about the error but the phone won't boot, the only way to exit, is to press volume down and power and home button and wait like 10 seconds, enter download mode and flash the Sammobile firmware again.
