Warning this is engboot, meaning its not made to be used on day to day basis you may run into some issues. Hopefully we can fix them as we go!
Also do not update supersu through playstore untill we are for sure that it wont mess anything up

You will need:
- Engineering boot images
- Patched version of Odin3 (only AT&T models ?)
- Extract files, and run root.bat with adb on the path

This version of SuperSU is not officially supported. I recommend against updating the APK from the Play Store, or otherwise updating the binaries, unless someone knowledgable has tried before you and confirmed it worked.

If it breaks, you get to keep all the pieces.

First of all thanks to @Chainfire for helping achieve su

I take no responsibility for anything that happens to your device, same goes for everyone that helped.


1. Download Modified Odin and Engineering Kernel
Odin:
MOD EDIT: DOWNLOAD LINK REMOVED

This is special Odin to bypass SHA-256 made by Princecosmy

Second file you will need is
Kernel:
G935A (Edge) MOD EDIT: DOWNLOAD LINK REMOVED
G930A (S7) MOD EDIT: DOWNLOAD LINK REMOVED
This is the engboot


2. Flash the kernel to your phone
a. Boot into download mode (Power, Volume Down, and Home button)
b. Put the Kernel file into AP on Odin
c. Flash, and boot phone

3. Download SuperSU made for our phone, and extract into C:\adb\super
(You're going to need to create the "super" folder)
SuperSU: https://download.chainfire.eu/968/Su....74-2-S7QC.zip

4 Open a command prompt in C:\adb
(Shift right-click in the folder, click "Open command window here")
then navigate to the super folder: type "cd super" into the command prompt

5 Enable USB debugging on your phone, and enter the following command into the command prompt
a. "Root.bat"
(This is what the command prompt will display when finished:

6. The program should run, reboot your phone, and you have root!

For the bounty id prefer if you just donate to [email protected] PayPal

Makes more of a lasting impact then what i could do with any of it.

Again thank you to everyone who helped!

We made it fam!

If you are successful after rooting and can give better instructions please let me know!

Usually clearing the cache and letting it rebuild helps. However, like everything else, try it at your own risk. The boot method just came out so there is going to have to be a lot of trial and error before things smooth out. Generally, first adapters (such as yourself) are often the ones that have to try things before anyone knows if it works or not. Best case scenario is that it helps, worst case scenario is saying bye bye to your phone. Then again, anytime you do anything to your phone there is always risk. Good luck and let us know if you try anything that seems to help (or hurt).

okay, not really a noob, but not really an expert, I have been doing this kind of things since the LG ally. but I am baffled, ever since root I cannot for the life of me get this little cyclone icon or the vo)) lte icon to Go Away. I don't have an option for HD voice in any setting, nor do I have a setting for rcs service. I have been scowling through threads for about 3 hrs, so I have looked for an answer, pretty much my last resort here. any help would be great!!!

I followed the instructions and got Odin to flash but once my phone reboots it gets stuck at the at&t logo. I can turn it off via vol down+power but once it boots back up it stops at the logo again. Any idea on what to do to either get it back to normal or moving forward?
