  1. i have a samsung galaxy s7 edge SM-G935PVPU4APL6 Sprint. Android version 6.0.1
    i’ve been having lots of trouble trying to root this phone i have rooted other phones before and no trouble.

    am using windows 10.
    i tried this method and used the firmware downloaded and the latest version of Odin. i downloaded the drivers and updated to the latest/
    other firmware would pass without any problems in odin but it stays bootloop and i have to restore to stock.

    i also used package disabler pro and disabled samsung dm phone interface, samsung dm services, securitylogagent. i found that in another forum supposedly helped but nothing.

    this method keep failing so does others.
