    S7 edge here with Verizon.. Aka slowest carrier to push out updates ever. I was wondering if anyone has successfully sidloaded Nougat on their s7 edge. I'd like to try it. (no root)

    I have sideloaded it but I'm on ATT. It's smooth and works fine.

    You don't want to side load, front load, or any load an AT&T firmware on your Verizon phone.
    I know it sucks, I have Verizon too, and waiting can be a pain.
    People are having enough random issues after the N upgrade, you don't want compound those problems by loading another carriers firmware on your carrier locked (I'm just assuming on that one) Verizon phone.

    If you can find the beta for Verizon, you should be able to install that using Odin, but remember, it's called a beta for a reason.
    Betas are buggy, they are for real world testing and identifying bugs and issues.

    But, if you want to load the beta, go for it. It's your phone. But, don't load AT&T's firmware.

    There appears to only be one SKU for the GS7 Edge in the US, despite carrier branding. Also, all Verizon-branded devices are unlocked.

    That said, it's probably not a good idea to load an AT&T Nougat build on a Verizon-branded device.

    Press and hold the Home button. It should come up.
    I didn't have Assistant before the upgrade, so I know it wasn't carried over.
