How to root series: Samsung S7 Edge G-935F


  • Samsung root

    Hey guys, this is a guide for the pennical of Samsung, before & after Note 7 (haha if you know what I mean).

    The Edge phones are some sort of specialty for Samsung. It looks great (amazing actually), but I found it not very convenient. Btw, I have butter fingers and Edge is very fragile. So.... well, let's start the guide!

    What you need for this guide is TWRP 3.0.0 and SuperSU v2.68. The rest, it's pretty much the same as all of my other Samsung guide.

    Please backup your files before rooting, it's always a must.

    Hello, my phone is a s7 edge sm935f from att Mexico with the latest firmware.

    Ive tried rooting whit CF AUTO ROOT.
    Odin pass with no problem but it gets stuck on Samsung logo with the "Recovery is not seandroid Enforcing" message on top!

    I solved the problem installing the last version of TWRP, and tried rooting this way. I've followed al l single steps in the instructions post.

    I have seen many videos, and did all the steps, all.

    I've done it many times, the process always ends without errors, but when the phone boots, don't have supersu and no root.

    Any idea?

    Thank you.

    @rafacore Hi bro I m sorry I missed your message, and to make it worse I personally can't figure out what went wrong... However, there are similar reports on XDA so I would assume it's more of a bug than installation error. I hope Chainfire's new versions, the 2.79 SR2, will fix it
