XDA user ashyx originally built the TWRP recovery for Galaxy On7, which user amtra shared on XDA forums. The recovery build has been tested on Galaxy On7 G600FY variant of the device but should for all variants.

With TWRP recovery now available, you can also root Galaxy On7 easily via either flashing SuperSU zip or Magisk zip from the TWRP recovery. Both rooting methods has their own merits, but the Magisk root has been gaining popularity recently, thanks to its capabilities of disabling root on-the-fly without requiring a reboot.
