The Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone is a pretty smartphone right out of the box, but it does come with the same old boot animation screen you have likely seen several times over at the very least. Anyone wanting to customize the boot animation of the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone doesn’t have to go to as much effort as one might think. Once you root the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone you are then able to install an app called “Boot Animations” which is free to install for everyone. The Boot Animations application will expose you to up to 300 new boot animations to choose to run on your smartphone. It’s the perfect way to make your flashy new flagship Samsung smartphone look unique from any of your friends, and it can be done right after you follow the guide after the break.
These are the instructions to root Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930 smartphones so you can go on to run root apps like the Boot Animation application and many more:
- You must have a custom recovery installed on the Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930X smartphone before you can root the device.
