Oreo Root For The S7/S7E (Will work on V8 Bootloader) Is Finally Here!!


A big thanks goes out to @klabit87 he is 99 percent the reason we have root! Also @stang5litre and stang5litre test group and @gustco for eng boot.img



Downloads

S7_Oreo_Nougat_Adb_Advanced_Root_V12.zip Recommended Root Zip

This zip gives you the option to install some cpu tweaks and will also. Install the entropy tweak that the SEFix app does. The tweak sets entropy to high by default I also include the SEFix app if you want to change the settings. I also set the swappiness settings to very high. If you want to change these settings you can download the speedup swap app from playstore. The above zip also removes knox and changes the fstab.qcom file to disable dm-verity on system files and remove all file encryption which makes it seem to work better and make it compatible with my no root roms that has to have this done to allow safestrap to work. Installing the above zip requires a data wipe unless you have already installed it or you are coming from my non rooted roms



S7_Oreo_Su_Binary_Only_ADB_Root.zip Alternative Root Zip

This root zip is only for oreo an only installs the su binary to the system/xbin folder giving you root privelages it has no tweaks and does not change the fstab.qcomn file to remove dm-verity and system file encryption. There is no SuperSU app installed either but you will have root privelages.



SuperSU.apk

If you need to reinstall the SuperSu app only use this one







Directions:

This works for Oreo And Nougat Roms

As always there is a chance of bricking your phone

1. Download and extract S7_Oreo_Nougat_Adb_Advanced_Root.zip

2. Reboot your phone to download mode

3. Inside the S7_Oreo_Nougat_Adb_Advanced_Root folder you will find an Odin_Firmware folder. Use Odin and flash the Eng Boot Image for your

phone

4. Once phone is rebooted and connected to computer click on the cmd-here.exe and type root.bat in the command window and hit enter

5. Follow directions on the comand window

6. You can only use system root on Oreo

7. Once root is done and root bat closes leave your phone alone for a few minutes it may reboot a couple of times

8. Sprint Users This should work for you as well just let me know if your phone reboots with eng boot.img installed like it did on nougat while try too run the root.bat. I may need to change some things

9. With this system root do not update su binary if in anyway you get something asking you to update binaries ignore it. You can also disable notifications about updating binaries. This will not affect su app

10. Don't flash any superuser zips in recovery that are not made by me

Bugs

The usual root bugs that were present in nougat are still present in oreo

This has not been tested much so new bugs may arise

I've selected "1 - Yes SafeStrap is Install" in :MENU5 phone reboted to SafeStrap how to exit? It is always rebooting to safestrap back.

Note: After I selected that menu console fast closed and I noticed some error.

Wow sorry about that I had script wrong. You cant really enter safestrap can you?
Edit:
redownload zip from OP its fixed. As far as you not being able to boot flash the BL enter_safetrap file then enter safestrap then mount system use file manage and delete e2fsck from system/bin folder then rename e2fsck.bin to e2fsck then reboot to download and Flash BL file in BL slot And the Eng boot loader in the AP slot

On the contrary, I cannot exit from safestrap, it enters always after reboot. Sometimes screen contain small image of original loockscreen, it looks like split view.
