I am wanting to flash nouget onto my device, and at the time this has no documentation about doing so. What should I do to make sure I don't screw my phone and root status up? (I am not near an expert, obviously, but I like learning :P)

  • Nougat is not available on the S7 yet AFAIK. – Dan Brown Aug 30 '16 at 11:13
  • By available you mean it will break it or officially available? As I mean download a rom and flash it. – UbuntuCake Aug 30 '16 at 11:23

ROMs are not universal - you can't just flash one from another device and call it a day.

No one has ported N for S7 yet, and due to the locked-down bootloader on the Snapdragon version / development difficulty for the Exynos version, there likely won't be any until the official one drops.

  • Nvm. Where is the fun in life without bleeding edge stuff. Sad news :( – UbuntuCake Aug 30 '16 at 15:26
  • @UbuntuCake The fun is in Nexus. Join the bright side! – Andy Yan Aug 30 '16 at 23:31
  • If it makes you happy, ill aim for my next phone to be a nexus. But that is a while away – UbuntuCake Aug 31 '16 at 15:48
