    How to Root Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

    Earlier we saw Rooting Steps for Samsung Galaxy S7, and now here is the easiest way of Rooting your Galaxy S7 Edge. Rooting enables hidden capabilities of your phone's operating system using which we can make the most out of it by tweaking, customizing or personalizing the system to suite us. There are so many benefits of rooting but the same time, it also has some disadvantages such as avoiding the warranty or creating security breach.

    If you are well aware of the benefits and disadvantages and still want to Root, then let's just start the process. First of all take a look at these important requirements.


    • Backup the complete phone before we start anything. Although Rooting doesn't delete anything from your device, but it is always good to be on safer side.

    • Charge up the phone's battery up to 50%, making sure it wont get drained out during process.

    • Go to Settings > Developer Options and Enable USB Debugging as well as OEM Unlock

    • Download latest Samsung USB Driver, Odin and CF-Auto-Root for your Galaxy S7 Edge Model. (Download Files)Save all these files safe on your PC desktop.

    Rooting Process:

    • Start by installing the USB Drivers on your PC.
    • Extract Odin and CF-Auto-Root in a folder on your Desktop. Make sure it is easily accessible.
    • Now Turn off your Galaxy S7 Edge and boot it into Download Mode. Press and Hold Volume Down + Home + Power simultaneously until you see the green robot on the phone screen. Now leave all keys and press Power key to enter Download Mode.
    • Once there, launch Odin on your computer by double clicking the setup file and connect the phone using USB Cable. You must see 'Added' message in Odin which confirms the phone is detected.
    • Now click AP / PDA in Odin, browse and select the .tar.md5 file from extracted Root package.
    • Make sure Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time are selected (check marked) in Odin.
    • Click Start button.
    • Now leave the mouse and phone. Odin will complete the process on its and will let you know once done by a big Green Pass Button.
