T-Mobile Galaxy S7 Edge gets latest Nougat beta with ZPLH build as a custom ROM

Samsung recently release the 4th Nougat beta update (or 5th, depending on whether you count the first Nougat bug release update that fixed Facebook issues as a separate beta or not) for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, international variant.

However, the carrier variant were left out of this, but thanks to good folks over at XDA, the latest Nougat beta with build ending with ZPLH has now been ported to T-Mobile Galaxy S7 Edge.

The update is available as a custom ROM, already rooted, and unfriendly stuff like KNOX and FOTA client removed. It even packs in ZPLH’s bootloader and modem, so its stability should be pretty good.

Now, some things you must know.

First up, if your T-Mobile S7 Edge is currently running on Marshmallow, you will need to install the Bootloader and modem using Odin PC software, and use TWRP recovery to do a full wipe first, and then flash the ROM.

However, if you are already on Nougat, then be sure to do a full wipe, and then flash the ROM.

Be sure wait patiently for about 10 minutes when the device is booting, because it can more than usual time this time around.

We are expecting Samsung to release the stable Nougat update for international Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in December (anytime now). While the carrier locked variants of S7 in US at T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and AT&T are scheduled for Nougat in January, when it would also hit Vodafone in Australia. Oh, even the Galaxy A5 looks destined to taste Nougat as early as January 2017.
