Good thing. Everything else I was reading was starting to make me think the verizon note 7 would likely never get root, but now that doesn't seem the case. :) Now to wait for a bootloader unlock like the last eng leak that allowed the bootloader unlock for s5.

found a file that could possibly help, restarting the entire process now

Maybe I'm doing something wrong...?

folder had to be in the same location as your adb file

That's what confuses me. Not too good with adb. Are you able to show me where your adb file is or how you have it set up? Would help me alot!

Like this in my picture?

That's the error I get..

I do not know how many files are in the folder. But if I am not mistaken the files that are in the sun folder need to be in the a d b folder not in another folder

for you, your platform-tools window

Is anyone going to write up a guide? I'm browsing through the ATT one, but I don't know if Verizon owners have to do anything differently. Also does this not work if we accepted the Verizon update? If so can we go back to a previous version?

Awsome guys and thank you for all your work. I think this is the fastest root achieved for me lol when is the guide gonna be up? So we will have at&t version? If so does that include the system monitor they removed?

No it will be a bloat free version.

Does VoLTE, wifi calling and Samsung Pay work?

Samsung pay doesnt work, Im assuming because its a developer build. When you open it it says coming soon

Cool! Able to tell me how you got data working really quick? Have to leave for work in like 10 minutes!!!

My bad, was trying to get the steps down without missing something but you can do it on your phone if you get wifi for like 3 mins

I can probably live without Samsung Pay, but does wifi calling work? That's a biggie for me as reception is a bit spotty in my house. Also will this work if we accepted the Verizon update?

when I click activate wi-fi calling, I get nothing

Ok thanks for the info, so that's a negative so far for Samsung pay and wifi calling. Dang, I had high hopes for this. Still it's great that you guys achieved this and enjoy root!! Hopefully someone can figure out how to get wifi calling at least.

Edit: Also to revert back to stock is it just a matter of flashing the stock rom back on? Or do you guys anticipate any difficulties going back to stock?

    so I have root and my beloved adaway is back but I cant use phone data. Phone calls work but, wont let me change apn settings, wifi and everything else works. No bloat apps and status bar isnt the verizon version in anyone cares. I will factory reset and start from the root part of the steps to see if I can get phone data back on

    Root is achieved which is a great thing. Now just need to add APN settings to the phone. Try an APN app

    You can also use xposed if you are into it. I myself love xposed.
