Rooting the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone with the SM-G930FD model number is done by installing a custom recovery and then using the version of SuperSU that we have in this guide. The SuperSU app is going to grant root permissions to the root apps you want to be installed on your device while also denying root access to the internal system to any apps that request root access that you do not know about. You will always be prompted on the display when an app wants to be granted the root access on your device, and it is up to you to say no to anything that you cannot identify or do not want to have root access. You do not want a hacker or any apps you do not trust to have the ability to jump between apps on your device. Those situations can become dangerous if you have banking applications or your privacy can be in jeopardy should they gain access to something like your messaging app.
Here is everything you need to root the Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930FD smartphone running on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update by using the SuperSU application by Chainfire and the custom recovery.
