    Renowned developer, chainfire, has come up with a kernel auto root for the Galaxy S7, Global, Duos and Canadian octa core models, G930F, G930FD and G930W8. See...

    [SM-G930/Exynos] CF-Auto-Root

    This is for competent and experienced users. Please read all installation instructions, carefully and thoroughly, before proceeding.

    This will trip the Knox Security flag and prevent the use of Samsung Pay. Rooting your phone will disable OTA updates and also via Kies/Smart Switch. If you are rooted, you will need to download and flash future updates via Odin.

    Here is a short video that shows the rooting process...




    WARNING: DO NOT attempt to use this on any of the U.S. carrier minority models on the quad core Qualcomm Snapragon 820 as they have locked bootloaders and are unrootable. See, U.S. carrier models have locked bootloaders and no rooting
