Root access is now possible on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Samsung’s latest masterpiece of engineering. It is a bigger variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7. It has the same camera sensor, a QHD Super AMOLED display, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 panel, IP68 certification, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow (expected to receive the 7.0 Nougat update soon), Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890, 3500 mAh battery and a new USB Type-C charging port.
A few days ago developers released TWRP, the popular custom recovery to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. TWRP is a custom recovery which lets you do things you normally can’t. And now that TWRP is available, you have the chance to install a custom recovery and also root the device using Chainfire’s SuperSU package.
Basically, Chainfire has been updating SuperSu to support newer devices for a long time, and it now supports the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 as well. If you know how to flash a custom ROM or a zip file in general, then you probably know to install SuperSu as well. The process is very simple. Below you can find a detailed tutorial on how to root the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 using TWRP with SuperSU.
