Galaxy S7 Edge CM13 (CyanogenMod 13, hero2qltechn) Marshmallow ROM is an unofficial build brought to you by developer travis82. This is a BETA status ROM which may have minor BUGs and hence, please take a backup using a synchronization application or using Samsung Smart Switch or if you have TWRP installed then boot into TWRP recovery and take a NANDROID backup using the TWRP itself before flashing this ROM.

CAUTION:
Before proceeding further you may consider backup your all data. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you. Neither the developer nor we will be held responsible for any disaster that happens to your device.

I'll be dropping cm13 branch. I feel this is a waste of my time, so I will start trying to move the cm 14.1 branch forward this week if I can get some peace and quite. If any of you have experience with cyanogenmod and bringing up devices, I would love to have a fresh set of eyes, and a fresh brain to help me out.

So for this community this includes you guys in CHINA, if you are capable of help and have experience even a little bit and you KNOW HOW TO COMPILE A ROM, that part is important, than feel free to hit me up on hangouts, or whatsapp.
