    Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Root
    WARNING #1: Flashing a custom recovery to your device will trip the Knox warranty bit on your phone. Check with your mobile provider to see if they will still cover warranty on Knox bit triggered devices. If you understand this risk, continue on.
    You generally don't have to worry, as it's incredibly hard to brick a Samsung device, and physical damage warranties should be exempt from Knox triggering.

    WARNING #2: The Galaxy Note7 stock boot image has dm-verity, which prevents you from booting if you swipe to enable system modifications!
    SOLUTION: Follow the full rooting steps below, in order, to allow system modifications without the risk of a boot loop!

    DOWNLOAD
    Official: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (Exynos)
    Beta: http://forum.xda-developers.com/note...ote-7-t3446047

    - Download Odin 3.12.3 & Samsung Android USB Driver for Windows
    In your ROM, go to Settings -> About device. Tap 7 times on Build number to enable Developer options.
    Now go to Settings -> Developer options. (above About device)
    You need to enable OEM unlock, otherwise you might end up with boot problems or be unable to flash later on.
    OEM unlock
    Extract Odin 3.12.3.zip to your computer.
    Install Samsung Mobile Phone Drivers for Odin to find your device.
    Download a .tar image of TWRP for herolte.
    Reboot your device into Download mode. To do this, select reboot from the power menu and hold the [Volume Down] + [Home] buttons while your device reboots.
    Once you reach the Download mode warning screen, press [Volume Up] to continue.
    fap lock
    Open Odin and place that TWRP tar file in the [AP] slot without touching any other options, then press [Start].
    Hold [Volume Up] + [Home] buttons near the end of the flash, and keep holding them until you are in recovery.
    At this point, you will reach the screen asking you if you want to allow system modifications.
    By swiping right, you will trigger dm-verity, and if you don't follow step 11 you will be unable to boot!
    If you are going to root your device and follow the rest of these steps, then it is safe to swipe right and enable modifications.
    Only if you want internal storage or data to work in TWRP:
    Go to [Wipe] -> [Format Data] (not advanced wipe) -> type "yes".
    WARNING: This will wipe your internal storage, disable encryption, and factory reset your phone!
    Go to [Reboot] -> [Recovery].
    If you want to be rooted with SuperSU:
    Download the latest SuperSU by Chainfire.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer the SuperSU zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    If you only want a bootable system partition or writable data in TWRP:
    Download dm-verity and force encryption disabler.
    Without exiting TWRP, transfer no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip to your device over MTP* and flash it using [Install] in TWRP.
    Go to [Reboot] -> [System].

    I have pretty good experience with rooting but I can understand your apprehension, the last phone I rooted was the Note 5 and every android phone before it but I quit after that one because I managed to delete my EFS folder (it's the folder that holds your IMEI #) and basically ruined my phone because I didn't have a backup of that folder. I finally managed to get it fixed after a year, so now it's a backup phone. Needless to say that was kind of a worse case scenario, I did that by trying to do things I shouldn't have been doing in the first place. I will tell you one thing it is getting a lot harder to root than it used to be. A good place to look for someone to help you would be XDA Developers check out their forum, good luck 😊

    There is a group on Facebook that is having great success in explaining in detail how to root the phone and its latest update. The group is called Note 7 Rebels.

    I'd recommend turning in your Note 7's, they're scheduled to be bricked in the coming days.
