The Nougat beta version for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge was already released, but many have been disappointed. Besides that thrill of getting something new and exciting, these earlier beta versions were buggy and impossible to enjoy for a daily usage, but I must tell you that things look much better for the beta 6 final version of the Nougat.
This ROM is based on the stock Android Nougat Beta firmware, but it is running the latest Android version, therefore providing a clean, smooth, as well as intuitive experience. For Galaxy S7 Flast (SM-G930F) users that would like to test it out for themselves, this guide is perfect.
As a disclaimer, please flash this at your own risk. Any mistake that you make could potentially cause harm to your device. If you don’t know what you are doing and you are a newbie, I can only strongly recommend waiting til the official update rolls out. However, if tweaking is your life, don’t hesitate to fully charge your device for this procedure, to make sure that Developer Options is turned on and OEM is enabled.
The update may erase the data on your Galaxy S7, so it’s highly advisable to perform a full backup of your phone before starting. And don’t forget that you need a custom recovery on your phone. If you already have the TWRP (herolte) for S7 Flat, then you are good to go.
