T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint and AT&T Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Nougat update rooted via engineering bootloader

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were the hottest selling flagships of 2016 and wherever a huge customer base exists, an interactive development community follows.

Thanks to the same development community for the S7 and S7 Edge, XDA user Araltd made a thread on the forum, announcing his success after rooting his Galaxy S7 Edge G935T running on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Araldt claims that the root method is working for all US Qualcomm variants (T-mobile, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint.) The steps for rooting the device seem simple enough and are mentioned on his XDA post.

The root for the devices is achieved by flashing an ENGINEER boot kernel boot.tar file which needs to be flashed via a modified Odin software from your PC. There are various files that are required for the process which are all linked in the thread itself.

If you have been loving the Nougat update but still miss various rooted features, go over to the XDA thread and get your S7 or S7 Edge rooted.

Note: The rooting method only works for Qualcomm variants, do not try it for S7 and S7 Edge variants running Exynos chipsets (international variant).
