Not Yet.. is necessary a kernel fix to have touch working.
You can use a workaround, using an OTG mouse to operate with TWRP

3) Boot your device into Recovery mode (TWRP) by pressing Volume UP + Power button.

i't not correct, please change in:
3) Boot your device into Recovery mode (TWRP) by pressing"Home Button + Power"buttons same time until Boot Menu Selection.

I have root, but not yet installed xposed + modules. I'm using it only with supersu, dolby atmos and adaway.
Only disappointed by touch not so accurate and sensible and general smoothness not so good if compared to some other devices with lower specs

Yes, sure!
Can it be used with a 3gb version?

Sent from my Redmi Note 2 using Tapatalk
I'm not sure, Master jemmini created it on the latest kernel for 4Gb version, so i don't know if kernel are different between 4Gb and 3Gb. It's a risk to try on a different model of S7

Hi everyone !
I did flash it on my 3G/16G model and it works fine ! Thanks a lot !!

Best regards,
Philippe

EDIT: Just i didn't used the scatter file given, because it might not suit my model. I used the one given with the S7_3g_20161219205038_v1.3 firmware. I can download it somewhere if someone needs it.

    Can I use twrp to flash the latest firmware update?

    And I guess flash SuperSU again after?

    Sent from my S7 using Tapatalk

    No, firmware package is only for flashtool.
    if you want to update it, you need to do via OTA (so automatic update from old rom of january to this new rom of february), but after removing root and flashing again stock recovery on your S7.
