The Nougat Android 7.0 is about to change the phase of Android OS with enforced system integrity boot checks, which won’t allow Android to boot if the boot image or partitions are corrupt. Unlike the initials Android 4.4 kitkat OS that has supported verified boot.


Enforcing verified boot is definitely a step toward greater security for Android users, but it could also lead to more problems on devices suffering from software and/or hardware issues, where the possibility for disc corruptions to occur is greater.
You should also note that enforcing verified boot could potentially make it harder to root Android 7.0 Nougat and also difficult to install custom roms. Those with hard locked bootloaders will understand what I’m saying.
In other words, devices coming preloaded with Android 7.0 Nougat or upgraded to Android 7.0 might be root forbidden… You root it, you damage the software hence corrupting the boot image. You may not be able to tweak it the way you want.

Also i don't think that changing of imei would be perfectly possible anymore as it may cause crash to the boot image after rooting

I can’t imagine how life will be without being able to root a device, tweak the device the way I want. Life will be difficult without rooting an Android device.


As for Now i  as a software engineer advice you not to upgrade your phone to Android 7.0 Nougat yet. I will let you know after they fix all the bugs.
