Remove battery charging limitation on Samsung Galaxy Note 7

0

Samsung has released the update for Galaxy Note 7 devices that limits battery charging to 60 and later to 30% also bringing recall message on the screen. This basically makes Galaxy Note 7 unusable and force users to return their phones so they can get money back. Please read this article for more.
This is the main reason why we decided to make tutorial which removes battery charging limitation and unlinks smartphone from Samsung’s future updates, so users can enjoy having Note 7 devices independent and without any restrictions.
We’ll use one of the best custom ROM made for Note 7 called HydraRom. It’s very stable and comes with all Galaxy Note 7 features. Check official xda-developers thread for more.

Warning: This tutorial is only for Galaxy Note 7 N930F model.
Update process will void warranty and will erase device internal storage, so it’s strongly recommended to backup your data to device microSD card or PC before starting this tutorial.

Prerequisites:

• The device should have at least 60% charge left on the battery.
• If you have Samsung Kies program in PC, Kies should be completely turned off to not disturb all the process.
