    Post Root without tripping knox.

    Do you have any idea how many times people have posted "I found root for this device!", then posted absolutely no actual proof, parroted some obscure and unrepeatable steps, and claimed, ironically, to be on vacation or away for some other reason and therefore unable to post more detail? It...

    Post Root without tripping knox.

    KNOX will still be tripped. There's no known way to "untrip" knox. It's like a fuse. Even if it doesn't show as modified inside of android's settings, it will still show in ODIN mode.

    Post Enable adoptable storage on your s7

    As with anything, it's often how you use it. If you don't fill your internal storage, then it's not "broken and completely useless." In fact, unless you load a ton of apps that prevent loading to the sdcard, it actually becomes difficult to fill internal storage once you move your data to...

    Post found this ...... ROOT KERNEL

    Based on the filename, it's an engineering kernel for both the S7 and S7 Edge (which implies it came from samsung.) These kinds of files have traditionally been allowed to bypass the normal rules.. (similar to posting the original boot image on a device without source.)

    With no references? No author? No information whatsoever? Not even the rar password? It might be extremely dangerous. Downloading random things and shoving them into the boot partition of your phone is... beyond stupid. (I'm actually surprised that a moderator didn't immediately delete...

    No links to reddit threads in question? While I don't instantly disbelieve you, you're a brand new user that's never even posted before who is making an accusation... (Of course, it does seem odd that the original app was pulled from the play store with no explanation.)

    Post My rant about At&t and I why I am angry with them about my predicament with my s7.

    While I tend to agree with the majority of your post, I think this one statement I quoted might be a bit too absolute. My understanding of SPay is that it relies on the KNOX fuse to determine if a phone is modified. If true, then if an exploit is discovered and implemented which grants root...

    Rooted or not, you wouldn't get that space back. The pre-installed crud is installed on the system partition which is a separate space from where user apps (and all data) are stored. If you rooted and deleted those apps, the space would just go unused. (And really, those apps don't take up...

    Post What music player do you reccomend ?

    With the mix of music I listen to, those automated playlists never work out. As well, they don't allow a "I like song A, but I like song B even more." Why am I even arguing this? If a person can't see the limitations, then they probably don't apply to that person. They DO apply to me...

    How about 3800? There are only about 1200 unique tracks in the list, but some are in the list multiple times. What I do is to take songs I like more and put them in the list multiple times. Of course, I only play that playlist shuffled... The end result is that my favorite songs play more...

    My Best Guess on this option is that it controls when data is able to be read. "Do not require" allows the phone to read the data before the screen is unlocked, while the other option requires the screen to be unlocked first. Why would it need to read the data before unlocking? Well, it my...

    I have a pretty much stock S7, and my alarm didn't go off this morning.

They are noisier than any smartphone alarm clock could ever be.
