Galaxy S7 Edge + Clean Base Android

Anyone know of a reliable site where one can get a copy of Android installed for an S7 Edg?  Had this phone from Roger's and it still has its bloatware on it. Would love a clean Android only copy of the OS if it's possible   

 

Thx 

Tim

As mentionned above XDA is your place.

But basically you really need Root, then you can use simple apps as Titanium Backup to uninstall what ever you need.

If you need stripped out android then I suppose you are going to go to Lineage OS. (which you will find in XDA)

READ AND BACKUP BEFORE YOU MESS WITH ANYTHING. 🙂

@timmmmeh You will find many more options at the XDA forums. https://forum.xda-developers.com/s7-edge

Oh. This looks like the right path .Just a few minor bugs with the S7 edge but no bloat .Thanks!!!

Re: Galaxy S7 Edge + Clean Base Android

Note that installing any such custom ROM, rooting, or bootloader unlocking might void any manufactuer warranty if you have any remaining time left on that.

 

Some manufactuers are more picky about this than other.  Even after reinstalling the factory rom, there can still sometimes be evidence left behind that you had previously modified the phone's software.

You can do a csc swap by dialing *#272*imei number# and select either telus or koodo this will remove your Rogers preinstalled apps to telus or koodo one. But backup everything cuz csc will remove everything and reset.

Lineage O/S (7.1.2) installed this morning, and so far - it's working like a dream. Quick, clean, beautiful! Thanks for the suggestion!
