This is for AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon and Sprint running V4 bootloaders only!


This tool will allow you too easily root any stock rom allowing you to make any modifications you might want then easily unroot for better performance
This will Also give you a fully functional TWRP recovery that can be accessed via adb. TWRP is fully functional on OREO Roms but is limited on Nougat roms

Beware If you update to new V8 bootloader then rooting and everything will not work. You will be stuck on stock possibly for good

Nice maybe I can ditch the Ufirmware now and get rooting to squeeze some extra life out of this phone.

If I'm on Ufirmware I'm prob on newer bootloader I can flash back to v4 sry for newbies question been a long time since I tinkered with phones prior to this one.

Ufirmware is still V4 for now and the answer to your question would be no. You cannot downgrade bootloaders

Ok good to know do you think I should switch to stock AT&T Oreo Rom Via Odin before following your guide? I don't see you mention if being On the latest UFirmware would cause any issues with this rooting method.

The BL I currently am on will show in Odin correct? Once again thank you for all your help =)

The bootloader is always the 5th to last number in the build number
G935XXXX4XXXX as for your first question it doesn’t matter

It will work on any firmware that is still v4 bootloader. If you have taken V8 bootloader update it’s probably the end of the road for custom anything on the s7/s7edge

I've used this to root and make changes except for install exposed. On restart I get an error saying my phone failed and needs to be reset. I just get back to twrp and launch the xposed uninstaller. The old beta installs but won't work. The v90 beta 3 gives that boot error. Is it dm verity? Would please explain how to get xposed working?
