So, I know just enough about rooting, flashing, TWRPing, etc, to be dangerous.
I got one of the refurbished phones with /e/ pre-installed — a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
I want to root it, and ideally, also add in TWRP for system back-up and recovery. Is this feasible w/o killing the existing OS and personal data?
Historically, I always rooted the device first, then flashed my new OS, so I didn’t care what happened to the old OS/data. Never occurred to me that I might want to root a phone after it already has the OS I want.
At the moment, I’m looking at this walkthrough. Does that look like reasonable directions? Do y’all have a better guide (I couldn’t find anything in the GitLab)?
Bonus question: Any chance I can encrypt the phone while I’m at it? Again, ideally w/o having to reflash /e/ and reload all my personal data/settings?
Danke, y gracias
