Want to be careful here - until this one we've all been running kernels that mask superuser-mode busybox mount etc with kernel version.

If you get issues from that, it's because busybox in the ROM is at fault, you've just never been able to use it before. But now, binary upgrades will actually stick.

If love to hear from an Android kernel guru if the path is the optimal way of avoiding binary masking.

Umm after flashing sirkay kernel, still got the busybox from busybox installer though (still names 1.19.4-STericsson and no duplicates. the problematic one is superuser. First when i ran TB, it gives me a warning about permission issue. I don't know how Samba works, but it seems like Samba server (or Wifi driver) is not working correctly (wakelocking) with flawed superuser. Don't know why but now wakelock problem seems more problematic than before after flashing this kernel, so my suspicion is based on superuser issue.

That's DooMLoRD's autoroot.sh script, which intrusively messes with superuser binary.

I don't like the script myself, but you should ask DooMLoRD why its doing what its doing.

Its also setting permissions wrong:
Code:
26	/sbin/busybox chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
As you know from TB, should be 6755.

Perhaps we need updated script.

Personally I'd prefer for kernel not to mess about with my superuser, but that's just me, its sirkay's kernel. But IMO the script is for using kernel on unrooted SEMC ROMs, not our custom ones.

Yes, but after flashing the ROM, I updated busybox to 1.19.4 and booted into

adreno drivers from arcatarc. Not sure if you need the busybox or the adreno
drivers, there is a busybox in KA08 and I didn't see the adreno drivers in the
changelog.

BUT....you really will want the SU update....especially if you are going to run the
V6supercharger script....or even TB for that matter.

busybox script can be found on this thread of zeppelinrox:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=991276

SU v3.1 can be found on this thread of zeppelinroxwraithdu:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=8328


Adreno drivers from this thread of arcatarc:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1556048


EDIT: Adreno drivers are preloaded into KA08 ROM......

Yes. that's why i prefer kernel with recovery as such, and keep superuser package as additional download.

Agreed.

Well, the kernel only kind of doesn't come with superuser.

It doesn't have su in /sbin, which is good, but it does have that unnecessary script, since we're using it on custom roms. Again, I can see why DooMLoRD would package it on kernels for stock ROMs, but that's just not our usage case here.

*cough* should really pull it from /sbin, remove it from init.rc, and clean out its files while we're at it. *cough*
