Rooting is one of the main advantages of Android smartphones, as it gives users access to system sectors on their device and allows them to customize it in many ways. However, some smartphones come with manufacturer restrictions, making them harder to root. Recently, AT&T Galaxy S7 has gotten rooted, and the method is available online.

Some manufacturers have imposed limitations on their handsets, which makes them quite difficult to root. The rooting process allows smartphone and tablet users to gain privileged control of their Android devices.

The purpose of this process is to overcome limitations imposed by carriers and hardware manufacturers on certain devices. Specialized apps can be run on rooted devices, and users can even replace system applications or settings.

Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 edge were released earlier this year, and they reached one of the biggest carriers in the US, AT&T, in March. The smartphones offer data-sensitive services like Samsung Pay and other Samsung-branded applications.

Samsung Pay on AT&T Galaxy S7 won’t work after rooting

In addition, they come with AT&T apps and limitations, making them quite difficult to root. However, it seems that hardcore users have managed to do just that, according to a post on XDA Developers.

A user has posted the guide to rooting AT&T Galaxy S7 devices, and the process requires interested Galaxy S7 owners to download boot images on their handsets, as well as a version of SuperSU and a patched version of Odin3.

In addition, it was said that the patch would work on the Galaxy S7 edge for AT&T as well, and some users said that it did on the Galaxy S7 edge for T-Mobile too.

It’s worth mentioning that users reported S Pay to stop working after the root was completed, but the process didn’t affect Samsung’s KNOX security software.
