It took some time but there’s now a way to root your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge running Samsung’s version of the Android 7.0 Nougat update.
Many power users have already made the decision to root their device. If you know what you’re doing, and are aware of the benefits and risks, you’re probably good to go.
If you’re new to Android and/or rooting, there are some things you should know before you root your Galaxy S7 with Nougat on board.
