Samsung is now like apple? Blocking everything deals with modding? First BPH6 bootloader on S7 Edge, and now Note 7 unrootable...
Yeah I might be selling this thing in a couple of weeks and getting the new nexus at this rate.

I see why they do it though - no root is a lot better for security. The enterprise market is pretty sweet and you can't blame Samsung for wanting it's fair share.

    [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:

    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!

    Official: http://teamw.in/devices/samsunggalaxynote7exynos.html
    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)
    I have already N7 N930F
    With tripped Knox. (Two times soft bricked)
    Only secure folder not working and probably won't
    Iris scanner and shealth working fine.
    OK, so if i want to fix my Samsung note 7 recovery, SM-N930FD, I should flash only the AP... correct? :confused:


    Moved to a New Thread...
    Fix your Samsung Note 7 - Snapdragon - Exynos - SM-N930__ - All regions and types...
    So you think this be best route to take for unlocked bootloader the FD variant? Will all bands work here in Canada?

    FD or F is fine, I choose FD for option of dual sim they should support same bands. (20 GB for $95 then $0.01/MB tablet plan SIM + basic voice plan for calling SIM if I ever go for it, otherwise I'd probably be shoving my 256 GB microSD in that 2nd SIM slot)
    They use the exact same hardware and kernel configuration/dtb, with the addition of extra sim slot connector, so custom ROMs if they exist will work on both.

    According to https://www.frequencycheck.com/models/A34rB/samsung-sm-n930fd-galaxy-note-7-duos-td-lte the N930F/FD support my Tbaytel/Rogers and Bell bands at least, which are 1, 2, 4, 5, 7. (most of my area is B4 AWS city and B5 rural)
    I think 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 should cover all of Canada, and it has all of ATT & T-Mobile's bands covered as well in case we travel to the US.

    You can use *#0011# in dialer on Samsung phones to check what band you're on currently. First line, ex. RPC:IDLE, Band:5
