How to root Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930S on Android 6.0 [Guide]

Samsung Galaxy S7 [1]The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge takes a large leap forward in design elements over the older Edge model. Though the design changes may seem subtle on the surface, the flagship devices we are seeing from Samsung today and miles ahead of what we were seeing a couple of years ago with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5. Of course, that’s with regards to what we see on the outside and not relevant to what’s on the display at all.

We are still seeing much of the same from Samsung when it comes to TouchWize and the Android operating system they like to cover with their own variety of system applications. Those same system apps from Sammy have developed a love or hate relationship with fans. Many people cannot wait until they run some root apps or a custom ROM to remove what they consider to be bloatware effective immediately.

There are a few solutions Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge owners can come up with when wanting to remove the system apps from Samsung. One of the apps that works just as well as any other, but it talked about a good deal less is the System App Remover application. The System App Remover app is also available to download and install for free. All you have to do is follow the guide after the break.
