How to Root Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge on Android 7.0 Nougat w/ Magisk! - Page 2

Step 12. Choose “AP” then choose the TWRP file you downloaded earlier.

Step 13. Hit “Start” and as soon as you see “RESET!”, hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 6 seconds and you will enter TWRP recovery.  If you miss this step, simply repeat until you get it.

Step 14. Swipe right.

Step 15. Choose “Install”.

Step 16. Choose the Magisk ZIP file.

Step 17. Choose “Add more Zips”.

Step 18. Choose the Samsung AntiRoot Removal Kit file.

Step 19. Swipe right to flash.

Step 20. Reboot system!

Step 21. Update Magisk Manager on Play Store after rebooting.

UPDATE: Google has removed Magisk Manager app from the Play Store, which you will need, just grab the Magisk Manager APK here and install it manually.

You can verify you have full root by running any rooted app such as Titanium Backup app.

Step 22. If you want to hide root from apps like Snapchat, Pokemon Go, and Android Pay, simply enable “Magisk Hide” in the Settings of Magisk Manager.  Also enable busybox as this is required for many rooted apps.

Step 23. Run SafetyNet check and you should now pass!  Congratulations, you can now run rooted apps and also apps that check for root!

    Hi,
    I am having a problem with this root method and I hope you can help. I followed all the instructions and when installing the zip file with TWRP I see a message in red about could not mount /data partition. trying to reboot by clicking on “Reboot System” the phone remains in a loop showing “SANSUNG ” message which fades and return.

    Technical details: I have S7 Edge and installed the proper TWRP image for it. Otherwise I followed the instructions to the letter.

    Can you help in resolving this or pointing me to a method to recover my phone from its brick state?

    Thankd in advance – Avi

    This method doesn’t work . Like everyone here, when I flash recovery, I can’t mount partitions, it’s like the sd card folder is empty.

  9. Kvan says:

      Go to hell, corporate goon! Either you’re a troll, or a hopelessly incorrigible idiot who can’t work out technical challenges on his own. But misery (stupidity?) loves company, I suppose, since you’re so quick to encourage others to throw in the towel as well.

    June 2, 2011 at 7:38 ameta>H<a/her,I think we share almost the same sentiments. It was definitely a different vibe and it didn’t quite have the same energy, but it also had less attendees so that’s to be expected. But in some ways having less attendees actually made it easier to talk to people. In vegas I got pulled into so many side conversations that I didn’t get to spend as much time with people as I would have like to. In NYC, I got to spend plenty of time with people, so I loved that.

    Great – it works ;-))
    It was a bit tricky but finally all the obove mentioned problems can be solved.
    Bootloop => go into download mode (hold down Volume Down, Center Home and Power buttons ), then Vol.Up and imediately hold down Volume Up, Center Home and Power buttons together for about 6 seconds and you will enter TWRP recovery.
    SD Card => Files should be copied to sd Card. If SD Card is not recognized, wipe data with TWRP and reboot to Recovey with appropriate function in TWRP.
    /data => if not mounted, go to WIPE within TWRP, then to ADVANCED WIPE, click on REPAIR FILE SYSTEM, select “data”, Change file System to ext2, repeat it with ext4 (to switch back to original file system).
    Copy files from SD Card to local file System with TWRP File Manager.
    Then go on with STEP 15 of the Manual above.

    • Oli says:

      SD Card => maybe a reboot into recovery in TWRP is sufficient that SD Card will be recognized.
      ATTENTION – be aware that you will delete/loose all your data when changing file System to ext2 and back to ext4.

      • Snylee says:

        This method worked for me but only because i had the ZIPS stored on an external SD Card. So once I followed your process of changing the file system, i copied the ZIPS from my external SD to the S7’s SD and everything worked after that. Thanks for the assistance 🙂

      • John Smith says:

        Yes. But you should perhaps stress INTERNAL SD card, so beginners won’t get confused and wipe their external sd card.

  18. Fred says:

    Hi guys – followed the instructions to a tee and ended up with a samsung screen on loop – installed magisk and antiroot on the external sd as I could not see those files in SD card even though they were copied and now unable to get out of the loop. Any help would be appreciated. How can I restore and go back to normal? What needs to be done without having to wipe the phone?

    • Jenn says:

      Same problem here… I copied both ZIP files to my phone (in no particular folder, just in “Phone”) but when I’m at the TWRP recovery stage and trying to “install,” both files are not there… and now my phone won’t restart/I only keep getting the Samsung restart screen… HELP!

    • Jenn says:

      Smh…me, too! I placed the ZIP files in my phone for sure (in the general “Phone” folder, if I must say) but I see no files at the “install” step…and now my phone won’t restart/I only keep getting the Samsung restart screen… HELP!

  25. Mike says:

    Grmpf I wish I had read the comments before following the steps blindly….

    The files were not visible, phone went into bootloop and had to reset/wipe phone to get it to start again… now I also dont get past the SafetyNet check….sigh…

  26. Retired says:

    Like every other “Grand Plan” for TWRP Root, there is apparently no solution for the SM-G935V. I’ve tried several methods some with piss poor instructions (to more detailed like Mike’s which by the way I’ve relied on since my Samsung 10.1 days) which worked well but they all failed resulting in a return to base firmware and painfully rebuilding phone from scratch.

  27. Michael Chatfield says:

    Hi. Plead my ignorance:

    two questions:
    1) Will this trip Knox? (I Don’t see it mentioned)
    2) Has anyone tried this with a 930U (unlocked international Snapdragon)? I’m just wondering if there are any methods that will work with this device. Or if trying this will trip Knox (or just not work?

    I’ve rooted my old Note 3 with no issues, so using Odin isn’t an issue. I just don’t want to brick my phone or trip Knox.
