    While the US variants of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are totally locked down it seems that Exynos versions are not locked down at all. In fact TWRP is already available for the G935F, FD, X, and X8 variants! This means that you will be able to root the devices pretty easily by flashing SuperSU in TWRP. You will need to flash a particular file in Odin first, but otherwise the process is pretty straight forward. Head to the link below for the download.

    Carriers want it that way so they can add their bloat. Here in Asia phones are not carrier specific and no bloat..
