Yet again, all thanks go to @jrkruse for this one. I have modified his zip to work on the Verizon S7 flat. The ROM is silky smooth since it uses the factory kernel. The instructions have been tweaked to work for the Flat. I can confirm that SafetyNet passes using this method.

A MASSIVE thanks goes to @hunteditor for this. I haven't been around XDA much these past few weeks and haven't made a new thread for the U-ROM. It has been long overdue. He took on the annoyance of modifying the instructions and download links to work.

S7 Nougat root kernel


Install Instructions From Any Build:
Warning: This will wipe your device. Some of these instructions are redundant, but they will ensure that everything goes as planned. If you don’t follow them to the T, don’t complain.

1) Unzip G930UUEU4BQD2_G930UOYM4BQD2_VZW.zip. Boot the phone into download mode (volume down, home, and power) then flash all four files (BL, AP, CP, and HOME_CSC) with ODIN. The phone will reboot into recovery and throw an error. Reboot into download mode and reflash HOME_CSC again. – Thanks @thefirst__noel

2) Don’t bother logging into any accounts, as the phone will get wiped again. Copy the FlashFire.apk, AP_G930UUEU4BQD2_CL10860000_QB13198947_REV02_user_ low_ship_MULTI_CERT_meta.tar.md5, and UFirm_Multi_Carrier_Hybrid_NoNaMe_PlayStore_BS_Fre e_V14_VZWS7FLAT.zip to Internal Storage. – Thanks @appye

3) Make sure secure boot is turned off!!! Shut off the phone and boot into download mode (volume down, home, and power). Flash the S7 Nougat root kernel in the AP slot in Odin.

4) When the phone reboots, unlock developer options and enable USB debugging. Unzip the S7_SU_2_79_Root_Unroot_WO_Tweaks.zip and run root.bat from your PC. May need to right-click and run as administrator.

5) Now install FlashFire. In FlashFire, select add Flash Firmware Package and choose AP_G930UUEU4BQD2_CL10860000_QB13198947_REV02_user_ low_ship_MULTI_CERT_meta.tar.md5 and make sure all partitions are checked.

Then add Flash Zip or OTA and choose UFirm_Multi_Carrier_Hybrid_NoNaMe_PlayStore_BS_Fre e_V14_VZWS7FLAT.zip and tap mount system when FlashFire asks.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: MAKE SURE TO UNCHECK INJECT ROOT AFTER ADDING THE ZIP! – Thanks @dclutter1

Click Add Wipe and choose Wipe Dalvik Cache and Cache and choose Format Cache Also select wipe SuperSU image. Make sure wipe is at end of flash sequence. The sequence should be AP file first then Zip second and Wipe cache last.

6) The phone will restart and FlashFire will flash the firmware first, then the Aroma Installer will start.

7) In Aroma, select wipe ALL data (DO NOT KEEP SU) – See notes below.

8) The phone will say custom status on first boot, but it goes away after setup and reboot.
The phone may take up to 20 minutes to boot the first time, so be patient.
If you reflash the ROM, you must flash the AP file in FlashFire at the same time.

Notes:
* Do not use Package Disabler Pro if you choose NoNaMe mods in Aroma.

* If you are installing the S8 apps, you may run into force closes. Your best bet is to pull down on the notification panel, click the settings button, and go into applications and clear data for everything that is force closing. If you keep data, you may run into issues with Advanced Calling and other features. Keep data at your own risk. If you don’t wipe data, then please don’t post issues in the thread.

* I was able to keep my settings and data by choosing keep data in Aroma and still passed SafetyNet. I can’t guarantee that this will work for everyone, but you can try if you want. This probably will not work if you are coming from MM. If you decide to take this route and have issues, do a full wipe and reinstall before posting any problems.

* If you get constant application errors saying "IMS service has stopped" and "com.sec.epdg has stopped", boot into recovery using the Power+VolUp+Home combination. You will likely get a "No command" error screen. Let it on that screen (30-60 seconds) and it will eventually go into the recovery menu. Wipe data and cache in recovery. – thanks paul.miner

Does this ROM come with Google Pixel Dialer, Google Camera etc Google stuff in Aroma to choose from ?
29th June 2017, 04:55 PM |#4  
I didn't install those options, but I believe they are there, along with some S8 app options as well. I've been running this for a week. It's silky smooth with great battery life. Every time I pick up my phone now I can't help thinking this is how our phones should be. I'm loving this ROM.

Here's the boot recovery file I created that should be added to the first post:

AP_G930UUEU4BQD2_Boot_Recovery_Image.tar.md5

Those that want to remove or update ad blocking host file will need to follow jrkruse post, with one modification:

I also modified the updater_script so that the BS Free section of the script will remove more of Google Apps, such as Photos, Hangout, but I kept the Camera plugins and the Gallery's photo editor and video playback, etc. I also sorted that section of the script by alphabetical, it was a pain to see what the script removes and keep when everything is out of order when going through the list. If anyone's interested of that updater_script, let me know.

I added this to the second post. Thanks!

As for the updater_script, I planned to redo it to fix the gallery and video issues on the next version. I didn't want to upload an update with these fixes, then release one right after when the latest ROM is available with the new firmware, because that usually ends up being the case lol. I'd definitely be interested in looking at your script.

I feel like I'm going crazy here, any help would be appreciated. I downloaded everything and flashed all four files (BL, AP, CP, and HOME_CSC) with ODIN. The phone reboots into recovery and throws an error. I reboot into download mode and reflash HOME_CSC again. Then, it just gets stuck on the SAMSUNG screen. I've tried reflashing multiple times, and even let the phone sit for over an hour in case it was just taking a long time to boot. But I can't ever get it past the SAMSUNG screen. Any ideas?

@CVertigo1
I was able to install this ROM.
I noticed a very weird thing. In the attached screenshot, there is a small white tab at top of the screen in scroll area.
Why does it exist ? Can we hide it ?

Reboot into recovery and wipe data.

It's called the battery bar. Disable it in the ROM control app.

Thanks a lot. I was able to hide it.
Another weird thing is, in the ROM control app, the button size is enlarged. Not sure why (attached).
I was using other ROM of yours earlier and in it the size was correct. Any thoughts?

Also, a word of caution during installation-
When I flashed everything from ODIN first and booted, the phone downloaded an update(OTA)
I accidentally said Update. It went ahead and installed it.
Booted back fine, was able to root, flashfire, aroma. After aroma however, it got stuck in boot animation. Rebooted it, got stuck and would not go ahead.
Needed to factory reset from recovery and start over.

Some of the cursors are a little awkward with the modded systemUI. You'll notice it everywhere, especially Google.
