    I know the Snapdragon 820 equipt S7's have given people fits... I was wondering if there have been any leaks as to how chained up the Note 7 (either version) will be?

    Root has gone the way of the removable battery, the IR blaster and the dinosaur... at least on AT&T. I have given up on that even being a factor in the ownership of the device. Those days are gone, and I seriously doubt they will ever come back.

    With Package Disabler Pro that will allow you to disable anything, I haven't had a need for rooting a Samsung.

    I tried rooting my S7 Edge so I could use Adaway but gave that up and restored to stock after two weeks. Even after adjusting the CPU cores and making other adjustments, the battery life and lag was far worse then my non rooted S7 Edge. Plus with a locked boot loader, you can't use any custom ROMs.

    I think it's very likely that the Note 7 will be locked as well. It's just the way Samsung is going in the US. T-Mobile blamed Samsung for this.

    I understand the reviews on Google Play can be subjective and sometimes bogus. Since you have this app, does it perform as advertised? Do you get killed with ads? Battery sucker? I'd like a real world user review. Thanks!

    There are no ads, it is a paid app. It wasn't that much, a couple of bucks.

    You can disable everything, even some
    system files, so you have to be careful with it. It doesn't run in the background. You just choose what to disable and then close it down.

    Here is a screenshot of a few that usually require root to disable

    This is good to know. Seriously considering the Note, after all these years of iPhoning.

    Please forgive if this is a bit of a noob response. ( this is my first post on android central!), but isn't it possible to disable any app note from within Android app management?

    I really hope root will be possible as I really like using Titanium backup.

    There's other need besides disable bloat for root. Wifi tether router for one (free hotspot) amongst other things.

    I haven' t rooted a Samsung phone since the Note 4. I really haven't had a need anymore. You can disable almost all of the Samsung apps (although I use most of them), and Tmobile gives me 7GB of tethering a month ( hardly use it anymore).

    It's partially the concept for me, if I buy a device then I want root command privileges. Even if I never use them...

    It us possible to disable SOME apps thru Android management but with this app you can disable more plus the process is much simpler and less tedious as disabling apps thru Android require 2 to 3 clicks per app.

    I agree, there is also complete backups for all apps with data, all apps in multiview, and my personal favorite, a terminal emulator with BusyBox for access to the command line.

    That's the Exynos model. I haven't seen anything posted yet on XDA about the model sold in the US. The boot loader is locked for the US version just like the S7/Edge.

    I am using it on my S7 Edge. Sometimes though, having the constant Adguard notification on the dropdown gets annoying. This is why I have my Note 5, Note 4 and Note Edge all rooted so I can use Adaway.

    I don't have a Note 7 at this time. Not sure if I will skip this year or not.

    Times have changed haven't they....I remember when a phone came out the forums were flooded day one with everyone looking for root...I've been around since the hot thing was getting free tethering through root.....Now I have no need to even want root....

    Only reason why I want root is for free hotspot

    Just discovered I csn do all my complete backups with Helium without root. It's not Titanium Backup that's good sure, but I have less urgency to root now.

    i haven't had an android phone in a while since i've basically switch to all apple products but i do browse around here still from time to time, and i see root like jailbreak there's not a lot of use for it any more and than the fact of "because i can" but that's just my opinion on it
