    Not being funny mate, The title of your article is misleading to the extreme. Anyone with the level of knowledge that is required to complete your steps simply doesn’t need them. You’re not showing people ‘How to root 6.0.1’ at all, most of the work is already done for you.
    Most people coming across your article (due to its title) likely have an unrooted phone… So making a rooted phone a prerequisite without any pointers on how to get that done is something of an oversight, don’t you think?
