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.

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.

Android-Nougat-update-for-Galaxy.jpg

2min10

Lately Samsung got plenty of trouble on its way with the Galaxy Note 7 exploding battery and recall, a mistake that cost the firm $1.5 billion and that is a lot.
Now, talking about the Android N update, expect that to be delayed due to Galaxy Note 7 blunder. But in addition Samsung is expecting at least an extra two or three months development time on top of its usual Android N update release for the Galaxy Note 7, knowing how complicated it will be tying together new Android 7 features with the Galaxy Note 7’s new functionality and S-Pen features.

However, Galaxy S7 and Note 7 flagship series is in a mass testing phase, preparing for the software update. That means there’s a good few months left of development process though, remembering how long it took to roll out Android M update for the Galaxy S6. It was 5 about months, so we’re looking forward for the update to show up in Q1 2017. Both 7-th series Samsung devices should get the update at the same time.

According to the company’s latest news, Samsung will introduce the Galaxy Note 7’s new “Grace UX” to the Galaxy S7 series when the Android 7.0 update lands. According to the details, the new update will include Google’s Android N changes as well as new features added by the brand new “Grace” user experience. On top of this, some features from the Galaxy Note 7 will also be moved across, including new Always On function for the display. Furthermore, Android 7.0 build has been much improved, delivering smoother performance on the Galaxy S7 series compared to the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow version currently available on all regions.

No indication yet if Android N will be landing on older Samsung flagship phones like the Galaxy S6 generation, but if history repeats itself, then older models may possibly get the update.

Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge is the latest and most powerful Samsung’s flagship devices. Shortly after they were released, a root method became available. Thanks to legendary root developer Chainfire, both phones are about to get even more powerful.

Warning: This rooting method works by unlocking device’s bootloader, which will void a warranty. If your bootloader is not already unlocked, during the unlock process phone’s internal storage will be erased. So it’s strongly recommended to backup data to sd card or PC.
Beside, this process will trip KNOX. This means that Samsung Pay will no longer work.
All U.S. carrier variants of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have bootloaders that cannot be unlocked. Which means that this rooting method will not work. It will also not work on any Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge model having a Snapdragon 820 processor.
Please consider all the warnings before proceeding.

If your device is one that can be rooted, then it’s time to get started.

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.
• USB drivers must be installed on PC (if Kies are in PC then drivers are already installed).
