In short, yes.

Currently on stack (unrooted) Lollipop on a Nexus 7 (2013), and while the ssh server works it can not allocate a pty, resulting in the shell not being all that usable.

While I expect that rooting will be a requirement to adjust things, I would rather avoid the option of completely disabiling selinux enforcement.
(Yes, it's a quick and easy way to solve the problem. But the selinux enforcement buys quite a lot in the way of security, so I'd rather limit things to say, a tweaked selinux policy.)

I've been running your app for a few days with good results, thank you for that!

Would it be possible to implement a wifi lock only when there is a client connected? Wifi lock all the time is killing my battery and my standby wifi seems to be responsive enough to receive incoming connections (often after 2 or 3 attempts, but it still eventually works)

First of all let me clarify that I am not the developer and maintainer of this App. It is Paul Lutus, and you can message him on his website. I only started this thread to help him out and to help myself of having a place to post problems. I really like his app, but THESE are really annoying issues, and has proably nothing to do with his app but with the screwed up way that Google is changing device permissions.

The only solution I know about for problem devices is something like I re-posted in edited post #8:

Good Luck.
