If you’ve already installed the new Android update and looking for a working rooting guide. I have prepared a simple step-by-step guide to root T-Mobile Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935T running on Android 7.0.

Before I move to rooting the phone, let me tell you this guide is strictly for T-mobile versions of Samsung S7 and S7 edge. Do not try it on other models of GS7. Also, the method is safe as I am sharing my experience with you, but root at your risk, anyhow.

Requirements

  • Make sure the battery is fully or enough charged so that you don’t have to leave the installation in the middle.
  • Backup your device just as a safe side. I am pretty sure you won’t lose data by rooting, but prevention is better than cure. So, don’t take a risk!
  • A Windows PC will be needed.
  • Download and install USB drivers.
  • Odin v3.10 is needed. Click here to download.
  • Download Rooting Files for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
  • Finally, also Download S7Root_Unroot_SU_2_79.zip

How to Root T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S7/ S7 Edge

Here are the step-by-step rooting instructions for the T-Mobile variant of the Samsung Galax S7 and S7 Edge.

1. Unzip the Odin and ENG-Root-USA.zip files

First, you need to unzip these files anywhere on your computer. As soon as you unzip, you will find the following two files inside the unzipped ENG-Root file.

  • S7_Qualcomm.tar
  • S7edge_Qualcomm.tar

Select the one that suits your phone’s model.

3. Reboot your Phone

Once you have chosen a file, you have to restart the phone through the steps below

  • Switch off your phone first.
  • Press the Home+Power+VolumeDown buttons together. Hold them for a few minutes until a warning message emerges on the screen.
  • Once you see the warning message, leave the three buttons on hold and press the volume up button.

By following these three steps, your phone will be rebooted into the downloading mode.

4. Make a Connection with PC

Now, take out the USB cable and connect your phone to the PC for further steps.

5. Run Odin

Once a connection has been made, run Odin on your PC. Make sure you run as an Administrator and then leave the default settings.

6. Press AP/PDA Button

After running Odin, follow the steps below

  • Press the AP/PDA button.
  • Browse the files for S7 or S7 edge rooted kernel.
  • Select the most suitable file for your phone.
  • Finally, press “Start” to flash the kernel.

7. Wait for Pass Message by Odin

When you follow the steps mentioned above, you will receive a “PASS” message by Odin. As soon as you receive this message, your phone will be automatically rebooted. It may seem like you are done here, but wait! There’s more. Let the phone reboot naturally and follow the next instructions.

8. Go to “Settings.”

Now, you have to amend settings a little bit. Go to Settings>Developer Options. Once reached, change the settings to “USB debugging” and “OEM unlock.”

9. Install SuperSU

Lastly, open the folder “S7Root_Unroot_SU_2_79” and run the “root.bat” file. That’s it. It will install SuperSU itself.

That will do. However, I advise you to check if the SuperSU is installed on your phone. You should also verify root access by installing “Root Checker” from the Google Play Store. Verify root access on your phone using Root Checker app from Play Store.

Your T-mobile Galaxy S7 Edge should have been successfully rooted with Android 7.0. Enjoy the latest Android experience and don’t forget to share your excitement in the comment section.
