How to Install Cyanogen Recovery on Galaxy S6 G920S

A few days ago we reported of a CM12.1 ROM in development for the Galaxy S6, well looks like there has been some more development in that direction and now we also have a working Cyanogen Recovery for the G920S variant of Galaxy S6. All thanks to sktjdgns1189 for his efforts.

This Cyanogen recovery has only been tested on the Galaxy S6 G920S South Korea variant, although we believe it should work fine on other variants of the regular S6 (G920) but it isn’t confirmed yet. If you happen to own a South Korean variant of the device or would like to test the Cyanogen recovery on your G920 device, the recovery is available for download as a .tar Odin flashable file.
