Warning this is engboot, meaning its not made to be used on day to day basis you may run into some issues. Hopefully we can fix them as we go!
Also do not update supersu through playstore untill we are for sure that it wont mess anything up


Notice from @Chainfire:

I'm just going to leave this here...

SuperSU-v2.74-2-S7QC.zip

You will need:
- Engineering boot images
- Patched version of Odin3 (only AT&T models ?)
- Extract files, and run root.bat with adb on the path

This version of SuperSU is not officially supported. I recommend against updating the APK from the Play Store, or otherwise updating the binaries, unless someone knowledgable has tried before you and confirmed it worked.

If it breaks, you get to keep all the pieces.

First of all thanks to @Chainfire for helping achieve su and @princecomsy for giving me the odin file and engboot

I take no responsibility for anything that happens to your device, same goes for everyone that helped.

First file you will need is here http://d-h.st/gsDA
This is special Odin to bypass SHA-256 made by Princecosmy

Second file you will need is

G935A http://d-h.st/lQY8
G930A http://d-h.st/aK2A
This is the engboot. Using @billas since its already uploaded.

Basically once you have these two files open up the odin included and place the .tar in the ap section should only take a few seconds to flash.

After you are back up download SuperSU made for our phone from here https://download.chainfire.eu/968/SuperSU/SuperSU-v2.74-2-S7QC.zip

Extract the files to a folder.

Here it may get a bit tricky for some.

Go to your adb install location. Open a command window where your adb files are located.

Change the directory to your supersu folder location from earlier, and run the root.bat from the cmd.

I am not very good at instructions as this is my first time doing anything like this.

For the bounty id prefer if you just donate to https://secure.savethechildren.org/....C01C/Global_Action_Fund/apps/ka/sd/donor.asp

Makes more of a lasting impact then what i could do with any of it.

Again thank you to everyone who helped!

We made it fam!

If you are successful after rooting and can give better instructions please let me know!

Will this work for the ATT S7 Edge? When you say not to use on day to day basis, do you do root stuff then revert back to regular kernel?

You can use it on a day to day basis. Dont try going back it will remove what you have done. The issues if there are any are minor.

And yes it is for ATT S7 edge.

I have a few questions here.
What exactly is going on with this root process? Is it installing a recovery? Will this trip knox? I assume Samsung Pay won't work anymore? Can we finally used xposed? If so, which version?
How can one revert if we felt the need to?
I feel so sorry for @br3w3r for having to deal with all of the Q&A after all of this hard work. LOL! But seriously, thanks for all of this.

This is the engboot. I do not know who leaked it out but @Princecosmywas the one who got it working.

Everyone slowwwww down. Root was just established. As for knox, Verizon, and any other questions hold tight. I'm installing it on my Verizon s7 now

I'll be installing soon too. But I'm doing something first. :)
While downloading G935TUVS3APD8_G935TTMB3APD8_TMB firmware (just in case) I'm also backing everything up with Smart Switch first. Just in case. ;)

    Honestly dont care about the bounty. Wanted community to have this so i worked with multiple people to make it happen because no one else.

    I don't have any of these devices, but it is very common for Samsung boot images to only work on very specific firmwares. Just saying - if it works for one person on a specific device and not for another, check your firmware versions (bootloader versions matter too!)

    Barely have root for an hour or so, and people are crying about how it got there. Geese. Post after post of people wanting root, now its here and people are still complaining. Some people will persevere, find solutions, others find reasons why solutions are the problem.

    Restoring my AT&T Unlocked Sim s7 Edge right now. Hope the root all works, and I appreciate all who were able to make it happen. No griping here, only appreciation.

    Just factory reset it fixes the problem same thing happened to me yesterday

    If somebody could make a video of super su installation that would be great I dont know what to do after flashing engboot

    Easiest way to put it for flashing SU.

    1- Make sure you have the ADB toolkit. ( Place it in the root C:/ Drive. Mine is C:/ADB

    2- Place the superuser folder you downloaded in to C:/ADB and rename it "super" to make things easier

    3- Open the command prompt. Either search for it or press Windows key + R and type in "CMD"

    4- Once CMD is open, navigate to the "super" folder. To do so type cd c:/ , then type cd adb and finally type cd "super"

    5- type in root.bat
