    Is this an Exynos international S7, or some US Snapdragon variant S7? Because knowing the exact variant of your S7 is very important. Suggest you post the full model number and baseband. Exynos devices are easy, Snapdragon variants I don't know at all.

    With Samsung devices that the bootloader can be unlocked, you would then install TWRP for your model number using Odin. Then the root solution of your choice or a custom rom in TWRP.
    This does prevent several Samsung apps
    like Samsung Pay from ever working again because Knox will be tripped. Best to check XDA for complete run down of what's available for your model number.
