Well, root has been achieved on all of the variants. All the information is spread, therefore I will compile it.
It is confirmed working for the G935T/A/ (All firmwares so far) can anyone verify it works for Verizon?

MAKE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR PHONE, YOU MAY NEED TO FACTORY RESET AFTER FLASHING THE ENGBOOT FILE. ( MAY BE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DISABLED SYSTEM APPS)

1- Put your device in to download mode ( Power off— Hold Down arrow + Home + Power button)
2-Open the provided ODIN and where it says “AP” select and open the file “Samsung_G935x_QC_Rooted_BOOT.TAR” — FLASH it–
3- The phone should now reboot

Installing SuperSU

easiest way to put it for flashing su.

1- make sure you have the adb toolkit installed( place it in the root of the “C:/” drive. Mine is “C:/adb”

2- place the superuser folder you downloaded in to c:/adb and rename it “super” to make things easier

3- open the command prompt. Either search for it or press windows key + r and type in “cmd”

4- once cmd is open, navigate to the “super” folder. To do so type cd c:/ , then type cd adb and finally type cd super

5- type in root.bat

You should now be rooted.

To remove the security warning, use a package disabler like titanium backup and disable SecurityLogAgent

    Phone is super lagged now. WiFi connections won’t save at all (S7 Edge AT&T).. Not worth it. Yet.

  • Ricardo Ferreira

    Is there an stock boot to reinstall?? The phone is unusable now.. And Smart Switch won’t fix it..

    Just got Odin to work. Did the download. Got a boot loop. Did a factory reset. Phone boots but can’t get passed first time setup. When it finally does, It says phone is activated the reboots and goes through first time setup again. Any help out there?

    Don’t use for Sprint SM-935P phones yet. Does not install Sprint network, instead installs Samsung Network to the SIM and phone will not hold activation yet…

    I followed the instructions and confirmed that the device is rooted, now how do I BOOT into a different mode? I need to install Xposed now. I’m used to rooting and using Odin with TWRP, but this is different… Thanks

    what are those two new notification symbols in the notification bar?

    • RetroRob

      Nvm they are the VoLTE symbols can be disabled by going to phone/ more/ settings and then turning VoLTE off
