    Hello,
    I have rooted my s7 few months ago .
    After about 1 week of the root has not grasped .
    Now I have it with the CF - Auto - Root ( which I have also previously used ) again rooted.
    This was to no avail . Odin does not report success root checker .
    Where could potential problems lie ?

    Samsung Galaxy S7s run Android Marshmallow, right? It's more complicated to root as opposed to with just one click.

    You may have to look to systemless root.

    The only thing, thats confusiung me, is, that i already rooted it 3 times with success.
    It always disappeared and now, i cannot root it anymore.

    Depending on the exact model (number) of your device & perhaps which update it is on will determine which best,if any,root method will work for your device.
    Not all Galaxy S7's are created equal in this regard,a bit of Googling & a look-see @ XDA-DEVELOPERS is your best bet for properly rooting your device.
    I advise against most one-click methods,but,if that's your only option,avoid jumping on any system updates until you can determine if such will break root & prevent future rooting.................

    Since the root progress, no automatic update from Android are possible anymore, because i customized my system by rooting the device.

    I agree with the others. There is a lot of relevant information either in the S7 forums here or at XDA. I would start with finding out the status of your Bootloader

    The only other possibility I can think of is if you happened to restore a system backup that was not rooted.
    I did this myself just yesterday,flashing an updated firmware on my HTC 10,had to wait until I got home to re-install TWRP & restore a rooted ROM backup.

    TBH,your posts are void of any details that could enable others to help figure out why you lost root.
    Phones don't just magically unroot themselves,either something you installed/downloaded,or,a site you visited,caused this.
    The more details on what led up to the unrooting,the better.............
