S7 Edge Verizon

I have followed just about everything here to a T and my phone is stuck at the Verizon Logo startup screen. It will sit there until the battery runs down. I have tried everything I can think of. When I try to reflash it back to OEM, I get an almost instant Fail. I have tried rooting again and again and it passes but when the phone reboots, it is stuck at the verizon screen again. I have even tried factory reset and it fails. Please help.

Latest software

Hi, I recently updated my S7 (Australian Telstra model) and can't find any rooting available for it. Has anyone got a root out for Build Number: MMB29K.G930FXXU1BPIT yet? Baseband version is G930FXXU1BPIQ and when I click 'Software Update' it checks for a latest software and tells me it's the latest already with the current version: G930FXXU1BPIT/G930FTEL1BPIT/G930FXXU1BPIQ.

Are you using the modified Odin used for rooting, or the official Odin? When going back to stock it needs to be the official one.

I have tried both but using the original for the steps you said to take. Now I get a software update failed blue screen. It says to use the Verizon software repair assistant.

I have no experience with that program. So you used the official and got the repair screen? Did Odin finish when you used the official?

Ok. My last suggestion would be to try a different firmware file. If it doesn't work someone with more knowledge than me needs to weigh in. If you flash a newer firmware than what you currently have, you will need to flash the BL.

The one I have tried is AP_G935VVRU2APE1_CL7722939_QB9709803_REV02_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar Could you direct me where to get a newer or older one to try?

Ok just making sure you know to flash all 4 files. Look at my previous post asking about the 4 files. I included a new link.

Well that definitely fixed it. Unfortunately I lost everything but still better than a really expensive paperweight. Thank you again for all your help.

Glad you got it. For future reference, if a process fails when everyone else claims success, try to re-download firmwares. That's what I've been doing for about 7 years now.
