    My build number is A2017UV1.0.0B27. Does it mean I have built B27 or 27B and if so, do I need to downgrade to 20B first?

    The Android v7 nougat update will be available to axon 7 this month (hopefully). If I update the phone to nougat, will the rooting process be any different? Will I have to wait until someone provides a tutorial to root/unlock bootloader of the axon 7 with nougat before I can root the phone? I’d really like to have the latest version of Android.
