Anyone ever had their S7 freeze randomly and lock up? I am on the latest July security patch, no root and while watching youtuube today the phone randomly locked up and I had to reset it by holding power and volume down. not sure why it happened

Believe it or not. Samsung is able to change CSC version without rooting the device. I filed a complaint with BBB, and a Samsung agent called me a while ago and instructed me how to change xac to FMC by entering a code. After that i got volte and wifi calling on my s7 edge.
I'm not supposed to release the code here; however, you can do the same thing if you file a case with BBB.
Good luck!

Better Business Bureau. Governing body for complaints made by consumers against businesses.

I had the same issues with wifi calling. Rogers added my IMEI to my account and it still didn't work. Did a factory reset and that did the trick. Now have wifi calling, voLTE and video calling.

Samsung disable certain features by CSC. For example, VoLTE and wifi calling are unavailable on unlocked devices from Samsung directly. *#272*imei is not accessible on xac version s7 edge

If it's unlocked, what is the point of changing the CSC? You can install any Canadian firmware!
By the way, CSC is the initials of "Consumer Software Customization"! unlock phone does not need customization of a specific carrier.

An unlocked phone purchased directly from Samsung will not allow the phone to use VoLTE or WiFi calling on Rogers' network. These features are removed in the XAC CSC. Data sucks balls on phone calls as you only get 4G during calls which is pretty well worthless and unable to connect for the most part. So for people who have bought the unlocked version for use on the Rogers network, you have a partially crippled phone. Installing Rogers firmware absolutely does not enable these features as they are tied to the CSC which does not change. If you want your phone to work as well as one purchased from Rogers, you must change the CSC.
The only way being root as the *#272 code is disabled on XAC unlocked phones

Has anyone used Echoerom for their device here ? Wondering since I have to donate to access their forum and I can't figure out if it is bootable on our variant.

That is in fact how you change CSC. Doing that will completely wipe your device so be careful. It looks like you got an unlocked phone with the MTS bloat built in instead XAC CSC.

No I inserted Mobilicity SIM prior using Rogers SIM to avoid any Rogers bloatware installation.
Thanks for the warning regarding wipe. I was thinking to do it soon.

    A user on reddit found a way to change CSC for people with XAC without rooting. Just put in *#243203855# on the phone menu and it gives you the option to change to other carriers.

    Hey boys, is there a way to root our S7 edges without tripping knox? Or alternatively is there a way of unrooting if I ever needed to send the phone in to get fixed?

    You guys gimp the security, speed, and reliability of your phone and encourage others to do the same; it's sickening. His question didn't even have anything to do with rooting.

    I've rooted phones for years but it doesn't feel nearly as necessary as it used to. Not to mention all of the problems that result from it: no Samsung pay, unencrypted internal storage, no Knox, slower boot time, random reboots, increased memory usage, and incompatible or poorly tested xposed modules can cause a myriad of bugs.

    The level of dillusion is insane in this community.

    No issues here. Samsung Pay is not even available in Canada yet, and I'm happy using my credit cards regardless.
    Boot time has not increased at all, memory usage is the same, don't care too much for knox.
    Please also note that Xposed isn't the only thing that can be done after rooting. Having the ability to remove system apps, and having access to root functions and folders is never a bad thing.

    Also, no one is forcing you to do it, so chill out.
    I'm sure when someone decides to root, they will end up doing some research on it, and they can decide for themselves if they want to do it or not... no one is holding a gun to their head lol.

    I'm happy with ClearPlex film protector from BestBuy stores. $29.99 + tax lifetime warranty. Anytime it peels off or it gets damaged you go back to the store with the receipt and they put a new one on. It does not cover from edge to edge. There is a 1-2 mm gap between the film and the edge end the ear piece and home button are only enclosed on three sides. The tech said that if the film would go more towards the curved sides it would peel off so they are aware about the limitations of edge screen and their product. After 1 month absolutely no problem. Install was great with no bubbles and no lint underneath. They have a machine that does it. It seems to be wet application and the screen is self healing. They have two flavors. On our device they apply the ULTRA one which it's been said to be HD. If feels just a little bit rubbery but way less than others. The touch sensitivity is great though.
    Give it a try.


    What are you guys using for screen protector, I know decent tempered glass is not possible and probably will not be for a long time but looking for a decent film. Don't care about the orange peal effect, I care more about the ease of bubble free installation
