Root Absolute beginner rooting Sprint S7 G930P with Nougat 7.0

Build: NRD90M.G930PVPU4BQH1

KingRoot apk was unsuccessful as was Windows.

I have not activated yet, but I did update Android and installed another update as well. Is the bootloader locked on the G930P? Will I ever be able to root this phone?

Any help appreciated!

The bootloader is locked, Kingroot won't work you need a PC, the eng boot, and the bat file.

SUCCESS! Rooted using this guide:

Any ideas on how to get biometrics working again?

EDIT: Fixed fingerprint scanner following advice here:

EDIT: "IMS Service has stopped" repeatedly popping up making device unusable after this theunlockr, beware S7 users!
