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

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.

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!

    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
