Hi,
Can SM-N975U be rooted or is the same as U1 version?

Alternatively, is there a method to repair imei on N975U.

Thanks!

You never know
It could happen, and if there's an incentive big enough for someone to really invest in tackling this, maybe it's worth it.

As far as I know it can not be rooted because the bootloader cannot be unlocked. Samsung removed the OEM unlock toggle from the developer settings in the phone.

My main question is (I'm not very knowledgeable here so please excuse me if this is a dumb question) if the OEM unlock toggle is just hidden or if it is actually removed completely.

If it's hidden, maybe it can be turned on still somehow.

Well, I think most people would want to keep Samsung pay, Knox, etc. Rooting is just not worth it for a Samsung flagship nowdays.
