Last year, we announced that we had a beta Android 7.0 Nougat firmware that we’ve installed on a Galaxy S7 Edge and you probably know all about the bugs and the issues that come along with it. That’s how things always are at the beginning, but the situation is different now since we are talking about the Android 7.0 Nougat Beta 6 Final ROM which can be installed on your Galaxy S7 Edge.
Therefore, if you want to install this new ROM version on your smartphone, I can assure you that you’re in the right place, since we made a quick tutorial about this!
There are though some important details you should take in consideration before starting the installation process if you want to complete the guide with no errors.
The firmware you’re about to install is just for the S7 Edge (SM-G935F) version, so even if it sounds tempting, don’t try installing it on another device. It will only lead to bricking it! Make sure Developer Options is turned On, that OEM is Enabled and that you already have the TWRP (hero2lte) installed on your S7 Edge. I don’t like to be the one spoiling all the fun, but you must flash TWRP Recovery before getting to the actual guide.
At the end, check your battery level and make sure it’s at least 60%, in order to prevent an accidental shutdown in the middle of the procedure. And let me remind you that I cannot be held responsible for any damage you could make to the device. However, if you follow the steps correctly, I can assure you that you will face no issues.
