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?
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. :)
+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!
so has anyone had luck flashing this on the G920T?
+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)
+Даниел Тончев Mate... You are more secure with the right apps and the right mind set with root ;D
What is the best processor Exynos or Snapdragon ?
+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
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.
+Kevin M Are they making unlocked versions? I searched before I bought this one and found none.
+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.
+Total Security why wouldn't I ? They're not locked this side of the pond.
+Chris Harpner yes just search (gsm unlocked )amazon would.load them once they are available so far haven't seen one yet so far
Looks like T-Mobile is going to try to fix this. Hooray!
Any news on root for the Sprint variant G930P?
don't you have any plans for G935K/S/L? Im looking forward...
+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
Please Update CF-AUTOROOT for Galaxy S6 Edge Plus android 6.01
F2f ql cc
Looking for that 930p root. Any word? Does this work for that variant to?
LoL thats fast ??
I have the sprint s7 i believe its the g930p? Its the qualcomm... is there a root in the works? Dying for root.
Chainfire always comes through and he has done it again peace in Kavanaugh out.
Does it allow you to unlock adaptive memory?
+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?
With Odin flashing, WiFi can not be opened, there is no identification SIM card. Have you found the problem?
G9350 WiFi can not be opened, there is no identification SIM card
Unroot After normal
Can help me root my lenovo A516 ?
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?
+Christopher Cruz Unless you got some special bootloader, no. I'm in the same boat but on T-Mobile.
What about the knox conter?
+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.
+Dashi John M. Debellotte If you mean Adoptable storage, you can do that already without root! I followed this article and it worked perfectly!
Can you make root permission for Lenovo Vibe P1

Please add cf-auto-root for 6.0.1 ROM's for SM-GG920I/925I
I'm so torqued that US variants can't be rooted. I actually took it back to the store and reactivated my S5.
+Chainfire please update cf-autoroot for SM-G928F (Android 6.01).
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

Hi, does anyone knows of rooting an AT&T S7 G930A? Thanks
What does a bootloader do?
Will it possible to root G935FD (Duos) with this? seems like same software on both
Awesome I unlocked mine too
+Velvino Ang a bootloader can enable a computer or any other digital device run a particular software on boot, like computers run operating systems
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.
Sorry +Steve mooradian. Thanks +Wagaana alex.... better leave this site.... I dont fit.
So I've rooted my phone and now it's fucking up. Oh dear....
Thanks for G920I 6.0.1 root!
Can i use the same autoroot for my G935FD?
+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...
Hello, i cant find the software to root model# smg930p...can someone help?
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.
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?
Hello, Plase update CF-Auto Root for Samsung Galaxy S5 G9009WKEU1BOL1（china ctc ）
Est ce qu'il marche sur G935FD

Nobody is answering whether this will work on the FD variant.
+Chainfire Question does this removes ability to perform Samsung software updates in the future or I can install updates manually?
can u provide root fro SM-G935W8 ?
Cf auto root for s5 g900h androit 6.0.1
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.
