My T-Mobile S7's "Developer Options" include "OEM Unlock", which is toggled "ON".
Does this allow me to unlock bootloader, even though it's v11 ?

ADB Method Only Rev-4 Too Rev10/A Download:

2022_S7_Flat_Edge _ADB_Root_Plus_Safestrap_V7.7z


Directions:

This works for Oreo Rev4-Rev10/A Bootloader Roms or Nougat Rev4

As always there is a chance of bricking your phone

1. Download and extract 2022_S7_Edge_ADB_Root_Plus_Safestrap.7z

2. Reboot your phone to download mode

3. Inside the 2022_S7_Edge_ADB_Root_Plus_Safestrap.7z folder you will find an Odin_Firmware folder. Use Odin and flash the Eng Boot Image for your phone

4. Once phone is rebooted and connected to computer click on the cmd-here.exe and type Install_One_Click.cmd in the command window and hit enter

5. Once root is done and root bat closes your phone will reboot too stock recovery where you must wipe data

6. Once booted click on SuperSu app and update su binary if app ask then reboot

7. Don't flash any superuser zips in recovery that are not made by me or use any other SuperSu apk

Rebooting Too Safestrap Recovery
1. Reboot phone as you would too boot stock recovery Pwr + VolUp + Home. It takes up too 40 seconds too boot recovery. Ignore the mount system errors on info screen
2. Enter recovery.
3. Too leave just reboot system ignore no system installed message if you get it
4. There is screen lag issues on scrolling in recovery. There is aroma file manager that takes care of this issue while in recovery but selecting zips too install may present a problem for this you can use the kernel manager recovery flash option while phone is booted too system. Simply select zip too flash and phone will reboot too recovery and flash it and reboot back too system. Most other function in recovery should work the issue is just scrolling too select files.
5. Flashfire is installed as an alternative as well


Features:
1. SuperSu Root- Do not use any other SuperSu app. Its ok to update su binary if app ask.
2. Safetrap recovery-Still working out scrolling issue
3. Flashfire
4. Kernel tweaks CPU governor set too Conservative
5. Entropy/Swapiness set to High
6. Build Prop tweaks to combat lag
7. Bloat removed from rom
8. Knox removed from rom


Bugs:
Eng Boot Image causes lag
Safestrap Recovery has scrolling issues
Random Reboots will most likely happen
Safetynet will not pass
Battery life may not be optimal

SuperSu cannot be updated
Flashfire may need date changed too 2016 to function if it just keeps closing on you

S7_Oreo_Nougat_Adb_Advanced_Root_V12.zip Recommended Root Zip

This zip gives you the option to install some cpu tweaks and will also. Install the entropy tweak that the SEFix app does. The tweak sets entropy to high by default I also include the SEFix app if you want to change the settings. I also set the swappiness settings to very high. If you want to change these settings you can download the speedup swap app from playstore. The above zip also removes knox and changes the fstab.qcom file to disable dm-verity on system files and remove all file encryption which makes it seem to work better and make it compatible with my no root roms that has to have this done to allow safestrap to work. Installing the above zip requires a data wipe unless you have already installed it or you are coming from my non rooted roms



S7_Oreo_Su_Binary_Only_ADB_Root.zip Alternative Root Zip

This root zip is only for oreo an only installs the su binary to the system/xbin folder giving you root privelages it has no tweaks and does not change the fstab.qcomn file to remove dm-verity and system file encryption. There is no SuperSU app installed either but you will have root privelages.

    I have made a new root method that incorporates my unroot method into it and it can be flashed on any carriers (excepty sprint of course unless they are still v4 bootloader) and either variant of the S7 or S7 edge. It also contains temporary TWRP recovery, thats correct full TWRP recover that can be entered through adb. TWRP only works on fully on oreo and is very limited on nougat due to the data encryption issue so on nougat you are limited too stuff that only changes the system and not data as you cannot mount data without wiping it first. Oreo however it is fully working excepty mtp meaning your phone doesnt show up as a hard drive on your computer when in recovery but adb is functional in recovery. The root method still uses the crappy engboot with the same crapy lag but I have added back the systemless option in root for oreo that seems to execute startup scripts quicker so it may help. To root you simply enter TWRP and Flash a zip. I will post later today

    I would like to say thank you to all the people that donated money to me in 2018. What I did was save the money over the year which added up to be a little over 200 dollars. I took that money and order 30 pizzas and had them delivered to my local homeless shelter. So thank you for allowing me too help out some people in need

    I am going to stop development on the s7/s7e. I think we have done some great things with the s7 but the time has come to move on. I have some final stuff I may post if I get around to it. I have left alot of stuff here in the s7 threads anyone is free to carry on my stuff. Anyone is free to use the stuff posted here or throughout the s7/s7e forums however they see fit. Just remember if I used something of someones and credit them I expect you too do the same. I may from time to time pop in and add something here or there but then again I may not. I thank all the people for their help along the way and the donations.
