well here's some proof of concept of my successfully rooted Galaxy S7 Edge. There's still lots of bugs but most root apps work.

Suck it Samsung







No ETA yet..

Hasn't root been out for Exynos versions for a while now? If this is a SD820 version then awesome.

I think you should probably inform people of whether or not this method your working on requires no OTA to have been taken. I know a lot of people have been holding off, and other have been upgrading ASAP

This is true. I literally gave up on hope for root two days ago and took the plunge. Fingers crossed! It's great to know that there are devs that go above and beyond to bring us root!

Is this just root or did you actually get the bootloader unlocked? Don't get me wrong, root by itself would be amazing, but I dream of being able to slap an AOSP ROM on this device.

I've been looking to replace my 3 year old, battered, yet trusty and still excellent S4, and the S7 has been the only worthy phone which checks enough boxes in terms of features and physical size, but without root I won't do it. Perhaps Samsung will be getting some business from me after all. Ideally, unlocked bootloader would be the preference, but rooted stock will give me enough of what I need. Any idea if this would work on the standard, non-Edge S7?
