  1. Most likely since the S7 variants had locked bootloaders. Seems to be Sammy's new thing. It took a leaked boot image for root to be achieved on those. Someone, somehow will figure it out...hopefully. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  2. That's why I'm ordering a pixel and just getting away from USCC altogether. Fi, here I come! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks man! They looked good and even when they looked bad in game 4, they still put up 4. Next round will be the real test; Caps or Leafs, either will be tough. BTW: Canucks, coolest team name left in hockey, unless the Nordiques return. [emoji106]🏒 Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  4. I was chatting with a rep online yesterday and they said they are not able to activate Pixels. However, telling them it's a 5X will still work and some folks have had the stores do it as well. I ended my chat by telling them to get with the g** d*** program like everyone else! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  5. There are methods, just not stable ones. Personally, I'm staying on MM until there's something more reliable. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  6. That is correct dBuster. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  7. Yeah you can. The neat thing is that since they have the altered bootloader used for rooting on MM, you can even roll back from Nougat; once we get it of course. A lot of folks over on XDA on other carriers are rolling back to MM since the root for nougat isn't quite stable yet. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  8. Yes, that's what I'm on and it worked fine for me. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  9. The AT&T unlimited ads says right at the bottom they throttle at 22GB. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  10. It's not the connection fee, it's the monthly fee for the line. They'll burn ya, believe me. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  11. You'll be charged $20/month more for a phone purchased straight out at Wal-Mart. USC charges $40/M for those lines, but gives you a $20/M discount when you finance a phone through them. In the end, it's the same amount to finance through USC. Plus, you can pay the phone off with USC whenever you want and your contract ends and then goes month to month.

  12. They are rooting nougat over on XDA, but the system becomes unstable. Things are looking up though! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  13. Wouldn't it depend on the purchase date? Most warranties don't begin until the device is first activated and registered. The same as it would be for a major appliance or a new car. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  14. I found that number to be a bit inflated myself, but that's what the article stated. It was on the internet so it has to be true! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  15. According to Android Central, with 7.1 installed you will be left with 23 GB of usable storage. They report that Google Assistant alone takes up 5.9 GB. It's actually almost 1 GB less than the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge has remaining with just the stock ROM and TouchWiz installed.
  16. I think it was mentioned earlier that they will throttle any line once it reaches 22 GB. I'm too lazy to go back and look though. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  17. I haven't noticed any difference on mine. I have the Edge; same hardware. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  18. Yeah, they really take the fun out of the whole "open source" idea. I realize somethings need to be proprietary in order to keep the features that make each manufacturer's devices special, but when they lock down the device they lose the freelance input and expertise.

  19. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! I ran the SU root.bat through adb again and I'm rooted! Xposed is installed and everything is up and running beautifully! For anyone else who may have issues while doing this: - OEM unlock doesn't matter - If root doesn't stick after the first try, run the root.bat file through adb again and it should stick. A third, or even more attempts may even be required, it's finicky. - If BusyBox won't install in the default location, install it in /system/bin/ - Having fingerprint or other secure locks on during this process has caused some issues for others. Not your usual Sammy rooting, that's for sure. Thank you to those who replied to my request for assistance. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  20. I've tried everything short of restoring the stock image and nothing works. I did get some help over at XDA, but I'm no better off. I'm going to restore to the stock tomorrow and try again. Also, I've attached this screenshot that shows what FlashFire says when opened. Yeah, I need to charge my battery now. G'night all! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  21. This is the weirdest thing I've encountered when rooting a device. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  22. Sorry, I did not mean to post this in multiple threads.
  23. I just finished this process from XDA, but when I open FlashFire it says I do not have root. I did not update the SU binary after opening the SuperSU app per the OP's instructions, but the version is 2.79 instead of the required 2.76. Anyone else run into this issue when rooting?

  24. I just went through the process on XDA and FlashFire says I did not have root. When I looked at the SuperSU settings it showed version 2.79, not 2.76 as stated in the thread and the downloaded file. I did as instructed and ignored the "supersu binary needs updated" when opening the app. Anyone else run into this? Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  25. Also, the version of TW on the S7 Edge is the best yet and it will only get better when nougat comes along. People can knock Sammy all they want, but there are those of us who simply love what they offer. Now if they'd only lighten up on the whole bootloader thing. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
