Sprint Samsung S7 PJ2 update
« on: November 02, 2016, 09:28:19 PM »
Is any one else having issues rolling their firmware back from PJ2 to PC5 to unlock. I've tried 2 Galaxy s7 and 1 S7 Edge and all fail during Odin flash.. any ideas?

I noticed that PJ* roms implement efuse check, so you won't be able to downgrade anymore.
See you ;-)

Thanks. I was able to root and unlock the 3 phones with the engineering boot.tar, is there a way to unroot now? I just want back to stock because how unstable to root is. Thanks.

As soon the PJ* stock roms will be released on samfirmware we will mirror them here:

I checked but those are only available for OTA updates right now.
See you ;-)

The problem exists only on S7 and S7 Edge because those 2 models requires a Engineering bootloader for the root to work, for those 2 models you should just wait, someone will probably release a new root method soon, while for the other models root works fine on PJ* roms too.
See you ;-)

I found this XDA post:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/sprint-galaxy-s7/how-to/sm-g930p-root-t3410604/page74

So I created the boot PJ2 tar as suggested there:

Boot (flash after root) S7 SM-G930P:
https://mega.nz/#!Pp0RgaLZ!3RsJTlyIA6VFmWzC15gwMe8vsJ_c4bfR_cEo0MxlCnw

Boot (flash after root) S7 Edge SM-G935P:
https://mega.nz/#!K4VSDSTB!uviAiBXxLm6uv_IHwUqmqsWFk9griNjF2kvODRfP4Vo

If your phone is on PJ2 you should follow the S7 / S7 Edge root instructions:
https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=301.0

The root will work but the phone will reboot constantly, but you will be able to unlock the phone anyway, after that you will be able to unroot it by flashing the above file I upped above in Odin's AP slot, that should do the job.
