Rooting, aka the process of gaining administrative rights on your device, can allow you to truly remove some bloatware from the device — instead of just disabling it. It’ll free up memory – both of the RAM and storage variety – and that’s just the beginning. If a custom recovery exists for your device, you can even flash newer versions of Android, remove TouchWiz entirely, and more.

Regardless of where you intend to end up in the rooting world, gaining root access and getting that Superuser icon in your app drawer is the first step. Let’s get started, shall we?

Things to keep in mind before you get started:

  • At present, this only works on the International versions of the phones.
  • This tutorial requires a Windows computer.
  • Please make sure to backup anything you are worried about losing before beginning.
  • Rooting the phone may disable two secure features: Samsung KNOX and Samsung Pay

With that said, here’s how to root your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge.

  1. Any way to do this with a MAC computer?

    1. Certainly yes, if you are able to install Windows OS (7, 8 or 8.1) either through VMWare or BootCamp. Else there’s no option available for MAC so far.

  2. Always bring a banana to a par

    mine says “fail”:( and on phone it says “Blocked by FRP lock”

    1. Could you please mention your device’s exact model here? Is it Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930F)?
      Have you enabled OEM unlock option from Developer options inside S7’s settings?

  3. that work on chinese replicas?

    1. Sorry, we only offer support for original Samsung products. It won’t work with replicas.

  4. Thanks for the tutorials. I can’t get my phone to root. Odin just walks through to complete process. On my phone I get in red letters at the top of the screen this message “RECOVERY IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING”. After 30 seconds the phone starts normal. Odin claims it is “Pass”. I looked the message up, most people with the same problem get the replay that they have used the wrong file to root the phone. I am pretty sure I am using the correct file. Used three different sources all presented the same file. I tried to root the phone 4 times. Any idea to resolve the issue? Many Thanks in advance!
    Model: SM-G930F
    Android: 6.0.1

    1. I finally succeeded. I did a factory reset and a cash whipe. Then try to root again and it worked. Many thanks for the tutorials!

      1. I am delighted to know that you have sorted it out. And thank you for your kind words. I will put my best efforts to make S7 Fan Club, most relevant place for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users. 🙂

  5. Sadly rooting my S7 (non edge) failed. ODIN reports fail after step ” cache.img” on my phone it reads “Custom Binary(RECOVERY) Blocked by FRP Lock

    1. Found a solution, apparently you need to turn on oem unlocking in developer options
