looking for a kitkat kernel that is all stock but with selinux toggled to permissive. my only objective is to run linux on top of android. anyone who has a guide to getting this compiled would get his thank meter filled

edit: kind @xluco has built a kernel just for us:

edit: for p600. thanks!

I am looking for this too. You can download the kernel source from samsung. I wonder whether, if you build without reconfiguring, you end up with the stock kernel. I would try doing this and only changing selinux mode if I thought there was a reasonable chance it would work. Did you try this kernel ?

I have not yet. But I have zero interest in performance tweaks that might reduce stability.

i'm currently using it and helping the dev wherever i can. selinux is disabled on that kernel, so i'm running linux deploy just fine.

i'm not sure about compiling the kernel from source because i don't have a linux box and i'm scared of something going wrong if i flash or configure it wrongly BUT if even anyone can show me the guide to doing this i would be very grateful

I was trying to edit my last post because I saw that you have tried that kernel.

I have spent way more time compiling kernels over the past 20 years than I care to, which is one reason I haven't tried this task yet. I flashed the pre-kitkat selinux permissive kernel a while back and it simply wouldn't boot. I had saved the stock kernel with online nandroid backup. I reflashed stock kernel and there was no problem. I guess, the same would happen with an any unbootable kernel. I never have built an android kernel though.

Here you go guys, try this.. Stock KitKat kernel with SELinux in permissive mode and Knox removed: d-h.st/uCX

EDIT: slight update with NTFS support / HTCP and Multi-core scheduler support.. all completely stable as they're already in the kernel just not selected
EDIT 2: http://d-h.st/ziH - V3 [19/05/2014] (fixes a small derp in ramdisk)

Any chance of a p605 kernel with SElinux enabled?

samsungs opensource website is so slow, it would literally be about 5 hours of download time to get the source, I can do it but it'd be next week now

Thanks, that would be great, no rush at all, take as much time as needed. There are quite a few users who have asked for this for a long time, but a severe lack of p605 developers has meant it has not yet eventuated. Happy to shout you a beer or two for the option of linux on the p605.
