Since the Exynos 8890-powered Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are not officially available in the US, those adventurous enough to get these handsets via eBay or other similar channels will not get local warranty, either. Fortunately, if they also want to mess with the firmware, it is good to know that both handsets just received official support from the Team Win Recovery Project.

For those new to it, we should add that TWRP is an open source software developed by only a few people, but also the leading custom recovery solution for devices running Google's Android mobile operating system. With the help of TWRP, those interested can easily create Nandroid backups of their handsets, remove bloatware, flash custom kernels and ROMs for various purposes and, if something goes wrong, they can just restore the backup firmware.

According to Team Win, the models supported are these: SM-G930F, SM-G930FD, SM-G930X, SM-G930W8 (Galaxy S7) and SM-G935F, SM-G935FD, SM-G935X, SM-G935W8 (Galaxy S7 Edge). For more information on installing and using TWRP, please check the links below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
