    Doesn't appear to be full root: OP on June 10th, appears to be real, but level of root as well as method of root wasn't disclosed. Bootloader is still locked. OP ends post with “No ETA yet..“ And then 17 pages of congrats, suspicions, a little bickering, and some wariness of a Samsung patch.

    Source: World First Galaxy S7 Qualcomm Root (XDA)

    Screenshot from OP:

    I almost missed this post from the OP:

    "1.)You will not get root with SRS root.
    2.) You will not get root but running kingo or kingroot. PERIOD.

    I have those apps installed because I needed a way to manage SU permissions. I'm able to make changes to system and they persist on boot....However this will never be 100% functional and stable enough without a custom kernel."

    Old news I am afraid. The actual model that has the partial root is the Sprint, G935P.

    See the video in... http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...comm-root.html

    Personally, I wouldn't hold my breath on this.

    Because every reply to the thread is targeted at the OP. This is why we use quotes, to target replies to people and posts other than the OP.

    Quoting is to ensure everybody is aware who you're responding to. Granted in this case the first reply may be somewhat obvious, but his reply has no guarantee that somebody else may have replied seconds before he did before he clicked submit. So a quote is reasonable. There's never an assumption that replies without a quote is always directed toward the OP.

    In the future, if you feel somebody is breaching etiquette, or abusing features, please feel free to use the report button.

    The locked bootloader that Verizon often has is usually the toughest nut to crack. I'm pulling for the dev, but my hopes aren't too high.

    Looks like the Verizon variant (as well as all US carrier S7 and S7 Edge phones are now rootable (permanent) and it does NOT affect warranty or trip Knox!
