I just started using Spegelius' Google edition rom for my S4A and I love it! But I have a question about when I boot my phone. It says "kernel is not seandroid enforcing" with a red font at the start but it boots just fine and everything works as far as I see. Should I worry about this or is it fine to leave it like this?

Boot sector is recognizing a rooted kernel. SElinux Enforcing is protection against malware and rootkits.
Not possible or need to change.

Current AOSP 4.4.4 (0.9.6 stable)

and CM11 (pretty stable 20140806)
has functional root credentials (su/superuser)

Both developed by a nice guy from the land of thousands of lakes @spegelius

CWM is running a rooted kernel and will trigger red message. You will find on his Gdrive

There are few kernel config options related to SELinux and enforcing it. I haven't studied the mechanism, or tried to to change those kernel options, but root is needed for too many users currently. If turning SELinux on affects root functionality, that would mean another build without root and SELinux enforcing... but that's not current, first we need to have a stable builds.

I got the red text after i flashed NE5 rom and bootloader was updated. I haven't seen any adverse effects related to it...

Thanks for the answers! Still using the rom and I am very satisfied. The battery life is so much better now. When I go to bed the phone is still at around 35-40% (up from <10%).
Thanks again!
