The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a powerful smartphone. It features a quad-core processor, an S-Pen stylus, a big display, and a fingerprint sensor. Samsung has also added a few extra features to the device, like Secure Box for file storage and Game Launcher to disable the capacitive keys during games. The phone can be rooted to enable many of these features.

Luckily, TWRP, a popular custom recovery, made its way to the Galaxy Note 7 just a day or two after it started shipping. This means that rooting the device will be fairly simple.

First, you will need to ensure that your device is compatible with the CF-Root tool. To do so, head to Settings>About Phone and tap on the Build Number several times. This will allow you to gain access to Developer Options, where you can enable USB debugging and OEM unlocking. Now you can connect your device to your computer via a USB data cable and run the Odin program on your PC.

While the program is running, turn OFF your device and reboot it into Download mode. Hold the Home + Power + Volume down buttons simultaneously. Once you see the warning screen, press Volume Up to continue.

Now, while in TWRP, transfer the Samsung Anti-Root Protection Removal zip to your device via MTP without leaving TWRP. Next, flash the SuperSu zip from above to complete the process. Once done, your device should have root access upon reboot.
