Steps to root Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) running on Android Nougat 7.0 firmware using the CF-Auto-Root method
1. First please download the correct root file corresponding to your device from the below links;
The files will be zip archived with two main files in it, the Odin and the root file. So after download please extract it so that you will get files like the one given in the screenshot below.
2. In the next step, you need to enable the following from the settings menu;
- Developer options (if not enabled already please tap on the "build number" 7 times under "About device" from settings menu)
- USB debugging mode (from developer options)
- OEM unlock (also from developer options)
Click on "OEM unlocking" and you will get a popup warning as shown below, tap enable now.
The detailed steps to enable USB debugging and OEM unlocking on Galaxy Smartphones are given below, methods are almost same on Nougat firmware.
3. After "OEM Unlock" is enabled, please switch off your Galaxy A7 and enter it into the "Download mode". To enter into "Download Mode" please press and hold the "Power"+"Vol Down"+"Home" buttons until you get a warning screen. Once you get the warning screen please release all the buttons and press "Vol Up" button to enter into the "Download mode".
Kindly check the below "Download mode" tutorial for Marshmallow firmware whch is similar to Nougat.
4. Now you need to run the "Odin.exe" (from the extracted files) file as administrator and have to connect your Galaxy A7 using the USB data cable to your PC. The connection can be confirmed by an "Added" message in the "Odin" application. If you didn't get an "Added" message please reinstall the Samsung USB drivers for your device and try again.
5. This is the final stage were you need to click the "AP" button in the Odin app, then you need to select the "tar.md5" root file which you have already downloaded and extracted to your computer.
Once done click"Start" button in the Odin app to start the rooting. Your device may reboot during the course. And once booted up you are good to go, a confirmation from the "Odin" app will give you a "Pass" message.
