I'm working on a root for galaxy s6 active but i need to know for which android build you need this root and which build are you on now , please make your vote in the poll section.
Notice: i don't own s6 active , it's why I'm asking testers to test those methods , I'm exynos developer ,i was able to get root on many phones that i don't have but that ofcourse was with the testers help, i believe that we will be able to get root on s6 active too :)
Warning:You must enable oem unlock in the developer options before trying any of those methods

Root test method for lollipop 5.1.1 only :
download this file :
http://www.mediafire.com/download/6h2hurw1al0c0y6/s6+active+permissive+kernel+lp.rar
how to install :
you must be on 5.1.1 stock rom
extract the downloaded file , u will get 3 folders permissive,stock and twrp
enter download mode and flash the [boot.tar.md5] found in permissive folder , phone will reboot
now check if the permissive kernel is working by going to settings/aboutphone , [se for android status] should be permissive
now flash twrp from the 3rd folder and if it work flash supersu.zip
if u faced bootloop after flashing the permissive kernel , flash stock kernel u will find it in the second folder

I put the phone in download mode, opened Odin 3.11.1 as Admin, connected my lollipop 5.1.1 S6 Active to PC with latest Samsung Drivers installed, Odin gives the Added message, loaded the permissive file to AP, message is that its added successfully, i click start, it runs for around 2 seconds and gives me FAIL in red
where did I go wrong?

What was the error message in Odin , did you enabled oem unlock in developer settings before flashing
