CFAR has finally been updated after months of waiting. This latest update for CF-Auto-Root introduces new changes to support the latest version of Marshmallow, among other major updates.
Over the past few months, CF-Auto-Root developers have been hard at work keeping their automatic rooting application up-to-date with the latest Android platforms.
This updating became particularly important after the Android team released a big security patch for Android 6.0, and then Samsung followed up with the same thing on Android 5.1 (Samsung hasn’t released Marshmallow yet).
With the new update, CFAR is expanded and ready to take on new firmwares and versions. Some new changes in the update include:
-More than 300 CFAR mobile device model versions have been updated
-Android 6.0, Android 5.1, and other new firmwares have been given additional support to allow you to easily install SuperSU v 2.65
-One of the biggest changes involves the ownership of the SuperSU app: Chainfire no longer owns the SuperSU app, which means that future updates may not perfectly align with CFAR.
That last change is important: a new warning appears on CFAR requesting that users “know what you’re doing” before you use the updated CFAR – especially if you’re installing the SuperSU app.
Don’t forget to check out the Chainfire Auto-Root repository here and download the version for your device.
Or, if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of downloading and installing that application and following complicated online tutorials, consider installing One Click Root, which automatically roots your device for you. You can unroot at any time – all from within a simple PC-based software.
