I am aware of a permissive kernel for P600, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2590311
but assume this will not function for the P605.
If not can the same steps used to make the P600 kernel permissive be applied to a P605 kernel?
I've been thinking of modifying and building the kernel myself. The problem is that there are several kernel source codes on Samsung's website for SM-P605. (I can't post the link here) My device model is SM-P605 without any suffixes so I think it's the first kernel that I should choose.
I think modifying the kernel into SELinux permissive should be as easy as changing a default value in one of the source files and then I can build the kernel using the instructions that come with it. Fingures crossed!
One more thing: in the source code that Samsung provides there are two directories, one kernel and the other platform do I need to build the platform too?
Just dropping back in the thread, still hoping this will happen, as linux on this tab would be really useful imo.
Someone with some dev experience might be able to use the methods used on the note3, which has the same snapdragon 800 soc to achieve this. The basic steps needed to modify the kernel are described in this thread
if nobody with experience can do this, I might give it a try, but that might be a recipe for disaster....
