You already know the story: rooting an Android device gives a lot more control on your device and lets you decide what’s better for yourself. The advantages of rooting are numerous such as getting rid of those apps that you don’t really need, improving your battery life and making your device better than before and much more. You don’t need me to tell you all these, so do you want that for your new Samsung Galaxy S7 G930F? Then, here I am to guide you!
For rooting the Galaxy S7 smartphone, you will have to flash a custom recovery such as TWRP and take a backup of your important data (including photos, music, documents, videos, apps and so on) before proceeding with the following guide as your data may be wiped.
Then, don’t forget that you have to enable OEM unlock on your device by going into Settings application > Developer Options > OEM Unlock and developer options by tapping Build Number in the About Phone of your Settings app multiple times.
Your warranty may be voided while rooting your device and Knox counter will also be tripped if you choose to follow this guide. However, you already know the fact that life isn’t about sticking with warranties, so are you willing to take that chance or not?
How to Root your New Samsung Galaxy S7 G930F:
- First of all, get the root exploit from here;
- Save it on your computer. Unzip this file on desktop if that’s possible;
- Next, download Odin from here;
- Unzip this file too and then follow on screen prompts in order to resume the installation process;
- Run Odin on your PC by double clicking on the executable file;
- Power off your device and wait until the device is fully switched off;
- Then, press and hold the Power, Volume Down and Home buttons at the same time, for no more than a few seconds;
- You must establish a connection between your phone and the computer via USB cable;
- On Odin, you must notice the “added” message displayed and as usually, the ID:COM field should be yellow or blue;
- If not, Odin hasn’t recognized your phone, so you have a problem. To solve it, you can try to uninstall and reinstall the Samsung USB drivers on your PC; reboot your PC and try using different USB cables and different USB ports on your computer; reboot your device, turn off USB Debugging and turn it on again. Then, reboot to the download mode once more;
- Then, from Odin, click on the PA section and just load the CF-Auto-Root package;
- Don’t check the Re Partition and Auto Reboot options;
- Once everything seems fine, just click the Start button on Odin to start the installation;
- If everything goes well, you are normally seeing a success message such as PASS! or RESET! on Odin. Your device is supposed to restart automatically after the process is completed, but this time things are a little bit different. I am saying that as long as the CF-Auto-Root code isn’t yet compatible with the S7, so on the screen you won’t be prompted with the usual messages. You will only get the S7 logo, and it may seem like nothing has happened. Anyway, have patience a few more minutes and your phone will definitely reboot a few times and then boot into Android.
