[Kernel] Stock Rootable Kernel Galaxy Note7 N930F/FD/S/L/K Without TWRP (08/20/2016)

TWRP 3.0.2-0 Galaxy Note 7 All Exynos Model Only: N930F/FD/S/L/K

Install TWRP
Consider before flash anything (Knox tripped), all you risk !!!
Stock firmware for full restore:
http://samfirm.net/forums/samsung-galaxy-note7.86/
WARNING #1: Flashing a custom recovery to your device will trip the Knox warranty bit on your phone. Check with your mobile provider to see if they will still cover warranty on Knox bit triggered devices. If you understand this risk, continue on.
You generally don't have to worry, as it's incredibly hard to brick a Samsung device, and physical damage warranties should be exempt from Knox triggering.

WARNING #2: The Galaxy Note7 stock boot image has dm-verity, which prevents you from booting if you swipe to enable system modifications!
SOLUTION: Follow the full rooting steps below, in order, to allow system modifications without the risk of a boot loop!

Beta: http://forum.xda-developers.com/note-7/development/recovery-official-twrp-galaxy-note-7-t3446047

- Download Odin 3.12.3 & Samsung Android USB Driver for Windows

  1. In your ROM, go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.
  2. Now go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device)
    You need to enable OEM unlock, otherwise you might end up with boot problems or be unable to flash later on.

  3. Extract Odin 3.12.3.zip to your computer.
  4. Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.
  5. Download a .tar image of TWRP for herolte.
  6. Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] buttons while your device reboots.
    Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.

  7. Open Odin and place that TWRP tar file in the [AP] slot without touching any other options, then press [Start].
  8. Hold [Volume Up] + [Home] buttons near the end of the flash, and keep holding them until you are in recovery.
  9. At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
    By swiping right, you will trigger dm-verity, and if you don't follow step 11 you will be unable to boot!
    If you are going to root your device and follow the rest of these steps, then it is safe to swipe right and enable modifications.
  10. Only if you want internal storage or data to work in TWRP:
    Go to [Wipe] -> [Format Data] (not advanced wipe) -> type "yes".
    WARNING: This will wipe your internal storage, disable encryption, and factory reset your phone!
    Go to [Reboot] -> [Recovery].
  11. If you want to be rooted with SuperSU:
    Download the latest SuperSU by Chainfire.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer the SuperSU zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
  12. If you only want a bootable system partition or writable data in TWRP:
    Download dm-verity and force encryption disabler.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
  13. Go to [Reboot] -> [System].

W8 is the Snapdragon variant. Do not flash this on that.

This TWRP could not have been built from OSRC as it hasn't been released yet, so is likely using a stock kernel leak and missing support for ADB, MTP, UMS, F2FS, NTFS etc. (unlike the post copypaste from my threads says :))

As is usual of Manh_IT and outside Vietnam forums, the sources are unavailable and you're pretty much on your own flashing this.

Once OSRC is out (August 19th for Snapdragon, anywhere between August 19th and September 2nd for Exynos), then official TWRP will be out soon after with all the other features supported.

PS. Would be nice to know if no-verity-opt-encrypt zip works on this device, it isn't working on the new 7870 devices due to forced encryption in vold (encrypts even when encryption disabled in boot image)

Look who's been lurking around the n7 thread.
Nice to see you here man!????
Hopefully later your team will release the official TWRP, for both model exynos and snapdragon.
And also your idleKernel. It's been an amazing kernel for my note3 up until now. Bravo. . .and bravo too OP.

I cannot go into recovery. Only download mode works. But when trying to flash something in odin, I get this error as mentioned.
Is there any way to get back on the device?

Worried to try as it's not working for many above - and still the Stock Firmware TAR is not available to re-flash if something goes wrong.
