    OK, so I am considering rooting my Verizon Galaxy S7. Before I do it though, I hav a few questions. I know when the process is done, my warranty will be gone, but if I uninstall my root, will I get my warranty back? Also, I have a yearly upgrade for free plan, and when next march comes around and I can upgrade to the s8 or whatever samsungs next phone is, will I still be able to upgrade if I remove my root?
    And, lastly, what should I use to root? There are soo many different guides, and I was wondering which one was the easiest and most recent. Thanks

    No. The security software Knox will be tripped if you root and you can't reset the counter because Knox will activate an e-fuse.
    Don't know. But I think you won't have any complications.

    I don't know if this works with a newer security patch by Samsung. Just test it or use Google.
