This is for AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon and Sprint running V4 bootloaders only!


This tool will allow you too easily root any stock rom allowing you to make any modifications you might want then easily unroot for better performance
This will Also give you a fully functional TWRP recovery that can be accessed via adb. TWRP is fully functional on OREO Roms but is limited on Nougat roms

Beware If you update V9 or higher bootloader then rooting and everything will not work. You will be stuck on stock possibly for good

Brother, you might want to check your zips. Your sm_g930_oreo root/unroot zip is missing the BL_ENTER_ENG_RECOVERY_G93*.tar and instead has BL_ENG_BOOTLOADERS_G930?? Also, your S7_G930V Flat Odin Firmware links to the G935V firmware and will not flash obviously to the S7 flat. Kinda important files if you want to use this. I was going to try to unroot and update to the Oct security patch and thank God I checked the required files before starting.

Yeah I know and saw that the 5th character had the 8 so it is a secure bootloader. Trust me, I went back and forth about root and no root. I decided that what little bit I was rooting for wasnt worth the hit I took as far as speed, heat, and battery. So far I am enjoying stock with the Oct security patch. If I get root in the future I may try it but for now I can run my themes and life is good, thanks brother.
