S7 and S7 Edge (Exynos) CF-Auto-Root available

NOTICE: This content was originally posted to Google+, then imported here. Some formatting may be lost, links may be dead, and images may be missing.

CF-Auto-Roots for G930F and G935F are available at the repo - http://autoroot.chainfire.eu/

These will very likely also work for other Exynos-based S7 models.

Before flashing, make sure you have enabled "OEM unlock" from "Developer Settings" !

Note that CFAR's display code isn't yet compatible with the S7, as such, there is no output on screen. This means that after flashing with ODIN, the device will only show you the S7 logo, and it seems like nothing happens. Just leave the device alone for 5 minutes. It'll reboot a few times, then boot into Android, but now you have root. 

If it still doesn't do anything after 5 minutes, something has gone wrong, and you should probably reflash your stock boot.img and recovery.img.

+Chainfire​ Will you still buy Samsung devices after the Secure-Bootloader-Afair?

Chris Harpner commented on 2016-03-15 at 19:06:

I got mildly depressed after I bought my S7, then found out about the locked bootloader.  If I didn't get a free S7 along with the one I bought, 2 free Gear VR's, 2 free years of Netflix, and $60 in gift cards, I'd have taken it back. :)

Henny Roggy commented on 2016-03-15 at 19:48:

+Chris Harpner I understand that. But +Chainfire? Why would he ever want to buy an unrootable smartphone? I guess that will be the case of future Samsung smartphones!

Sean Vreeland commented on 2016-03-15 at 20:28:

so has anyone had luck flashing this on the G920T?

Даниел Тончев commented on 2016-03-15 at 20:29:

+Total Security Тhis is the future of carrier branded smartphones ;) If this was Samsung's decision, all devices would have been locked. US carriers requested that. On purpose :) Plus, you can't really have Total Security on a rooted device, heh? (friendly pun inteded :p)

Henny Roggy commented on 2016-03-15 at 21:48:

+Даниел Тончев Mate... You are more secure with the right apps and the right mind set with root ;D

Nene Ward commented on 2016-03-15 at 22:37:

What is the best processor Exynos or Snapdragon ?

Chris Harpner commented on 2016-03-15 at 22:39:


Kevin M commented on 2016-03-15 at 22:56:

+Chris Harpner what you do is find a user who wants the same phone on same network sell it to them at market value add a case and such use that money and buy unlocked version

Craig D commented on 2016-03-15 at 22:58:

No more Samsung for me... But thank you chainy for your hard work and efforts on previous cf autoroots which was greatfully appreciated - thank you.

Chris Harpner commented on 2016-03-15 at 22:58:

+Kevin M Are they making unlocked versions?  I searched before I bought this one and found none.

Chainfire commented on 2016-03-15 at 23:05:

+John Cooppers first, that would be a question for the SuperSU threads on XDA, and second, unless the flash itself failed, it's most likely the app (you did not mention which one) is not compatible with the new Android or SuperSU setup and needs an update.

Chainfire commented on 2016-03-15 at 23:06:

+Total Security why wouldn't I ? They're not locked this side of the pond.

Kevin M commented on 2016-03-15 at 23:21:

+Chris Harpner yes just search (gsm unlocked )amazon would.load them once they are available so far haven't seen one yet so far

Chris Harpner commented on 2016-03-16 at 04:28:

Looks like T-Mobile is going to try to fix this.  Hooray!


Kari Mae commented on 2016-03-16 at 05:51:

Any news on root for the Sprint variant G930P?

Kiwoo Byun commented on 2016-03-16 at 09:10:

don't you have any  plans for G935K/S/L? Im looking forward...

Henny Roggy commented on 2016-03-16 at 10:43:

+Chainfire lol But maybe they will get locked on both sides later :O I don't even want to think about that... getting goose bumps

Wind World commented on 2016-03-16 at 10:57:


Please Update CF-AUTOROOT for Galaxy S6 Edge Plus android 6.01

Looking for that 930p root. Any word? Does this work for that variant to?

Erik Balassa commented on 2016-03-16 at 17:37:

LoL thats fast ??

Jesse Lambet commented on 2016-03-16 at 18:50:

I have the sprint s7 i believe its the g930p? Its the qualcomm... is there a root in the works? Dying for root.

John Kavanaugh commented on 2016-03-17 at 04:32:

Chainfire always comes through and he has done it again peace in Kavanaugh out.

Dashi John M. Debellotte commented on 2016-03-17 at 06:22:

Does it allow you to unlock adaptive memory?

burak kaya commented on 2016-03-17 at 08:28:


Henny Roggy commented on 2016-03-17 at 09:08:

+Jesse Lambet You will not be able to get root in 99.99999999999% of cases with the Qualcomm (american) version. I'm sorry! :/ But can you not send it back?

qing gao commented on 2016-03-17 at 13:41:

With Odin  flashing, WiFi can not be opened, there is no identification SIM card. Have you found the problem?

qing gao commented on 2016-03-17 at 13:43:

G9350 WiFi can not be opened, there is no identification SIM card

qing gao commented on 2016-03-17 at 13:51:

wan jibeng commented on 2016-03-17 at 17:32:

Can help me root my lenovo A516 ?

Christopher Cruz commented on 2016-03-17 at 19:35:

So after initially asking about the SM-G935V and doing a little reading, I'm curious as to the possibility of it even being possible?

Chris Ledbetter commented on 2016-03-17 at 20:32:

+Christopher Cruz Unless you got some special bootloader, no. I'm in the same boat but on T-Mobile.

Andrej Candek commented on 2016-03-18 at 00:18:

What about the knox conter?

Christopher Cruz commented on 2016-03-18 at 00:30:

+Chris Ledbetter  I thought as much...so damn lame to give people the VR headset and need root to pair things like the Dualshock 4. Lame.Sauce.=/ Ty for the reply though.

Nick Barr commented on 2016-03-18 at 10:28:

+Kevin M Not locked in the UK.

Nick Barr commented on 2016-03-18 at 10:29:

+Dashi John M. Debellotte If you mean Adoptable storage, you can do that already without root! I followed this article and it worked perfectly!

Santiago Fernandez Devoto commented on 2016-03-23 at 18:53:

Please add cf-auto-root for 6.0.1 ROM's for SM-GG920I/925I

Steve Mooradian commented on 2016-03-25 at 02:15:

I'm so torqued that US variants can't be rooted.  I actually took it back to the store and reactivated my S5.

Wind World commented on 2016-03-25 at 13:40:

+Chainfire​ please update cf-autoroot for SM-G928F (Android 6.01).

Thanks man

Mi Spielen commented on 2016-03-25 at 16:03:

Same Problem as Solrac Ikze

Root Checker say ok

TitaniumBackup, BusyBox, rootExplorer all works fine

But ES-Explorer. Taskkill Plugin and SecureSetting for Locale don´t work

They dont ask for Root Access

Tested on S7 with SU 2.70 and 2.65

Velvino Ang commented on 2016-03-25 at 16:34:

Is there any way I can update my rooted samsung s3. I used the cfar.

Enzo Ramirez commented on 2016-03-25 at 19:39:

Hi, does anyone knows of rooting an AT&T S7 G930A? Thanks

Velvino Ang commented on 2016-03-26 at 00:00:

What does a bootloader do?

Steve Mooradian commented on 2016-03-26 at 02:03:

+Velvino Ang , what does a search engine do?

Nimalen Sivapalan commented on 2016-03-26 at 16:43:

Will it possible to root G935FD (Duos) with this? seems like same software on both

Wagaana Alex commented on 2016-03-26 at 20:54:

Awesome I unlocked mine too

Wagaana Alex commented on 2016-03-26 at 20:58:

+Velvino Ang​ a bootloader can enable a computer or any other digital device run a particular software on boot, like computers run operating systems

Anthony Pallone commented on 2016-03-27 at 04:16:

I have a sprint s7 (snapdragon), it DOES have the OEM unlock in the dev tools. Can I root my phone somehow? any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks for G920I 6.0.1 root!

Surapong Ron commented on 2016-04-02 at 16:34:

Can i use the same autoroot for my G935FD?


Hajar Slimani commented on 2016-04-03 at 08:19:


Paul Gereaux commented on 2016-04-05 at 20:54:

+Anthony Pallone Verizon S7 Edge also has OEM Unlock in developer mode menu.  Holding out hope.  HTC phones have had locked bootloaders for years and they always get cracked. Nexus devices as well, so maybe just maybe... 

P commented on 2016-04-07 at 07:30:

Hello, i cant find the software to root model# smg930p...can someone help?

Long Talker commented on 2016-04-09 at 12:12:

Can anyone confirm whether they were able to successfully (or NONsuccessfully!) root the S7 Edge G935F with the method described here?

It seems quite a high-risk & insufficiently tested method, for which there is apparently no support at all from the developer. Thanks.

Lou Capo commented on 2016-04-14 at 13:12:

I just got the android n beta ota update last night and now oem unlocking is disabled in developer options. Any idea why or how to fix?

Nobody is answering whether this will work on the FD variant.

Darko Demić commented on 2016-05-16 at 20:22:

+Chainfire Question does this removes ability to perform Samsung software updates in the future or I can install updates manually?

Ahmed el dawoo commented on 2016-06-01 at 20:35:

Cf auto root for s5 g900h androit 6.0.1

Mahmoud Nabeel commented on 2016-07-05 at 12:58:

Hi Jorrit,


I got a serious problem with my G935F S7 Edge hero2 device, there no any working ROM (official or custom) booting up, it always send me to the official recovery with the error of "dm-verity verification failed, Check DRK First". Unfortunately, the FRP LOCK is ON so whenever I flash your magic CF-AutoRoot file, it's always blocked giving "custom binary (recovery) blocked by FRP" error.

Can you make the CF-AutoRoot file to skip the FRP lock in Download Mode? i.e.: The device read it as an official binary?

Thanks a lot for your tremendous efforts you're exerting for the whole world.
