Root has finally been achieved over at the ATT S7 section! From what I understand, it should work on all Qualcomm S7 variants but I haven't been home to test it out or else I would have already. If anyone wants to try it and report back here I will update this thread accordingly. Test at your OWN risk.

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.

Bounty info (if any) will be posted also by @br3w3r



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.

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!

Just got home to test this out. Currently on PC5 since I've been waiting for this day to come. Will post back once I have results.

Just flashed the engineering boot.img. Make sure you boot into BOOTLOADER mode when using odin to flash this because the instructions don't show this. Also, make sure to back up all your stuff because most likely this will involve a factory reset.

Update #3: So, seems like our variant seems to have issues with the activation process. Here's what I did to fix it. It's a temporary fix until it gets figured out completed but it's a fix none the less.
1. Flash engineer boot.img through odin.
2. Factory reset/wipe
3. Go through the setup process without actually activating.
4. I signed into my google account through wifi and I downloaded Package Disable Pro+ Samsung (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ospolice.packagedisablerpremium).
5. I went into settings>Acitvate this device.
Don't click "done" after it gets activated.
6. Press the home button to get to the main screen and open up Package Disabler Pro+ Samsung
7. After Package Disabler Pro is set up... I searched for Samsung DM Service and I disabled it.

Voila! No more rebooting. Like I said, this is hopefully temporary until it gets figured out.

Now on to installing SU. I will post back with pictures of Root Checker.
