If you do, let me know and with the steps
Hmm wasn't aware of the lack of support for system mode in nougat, any plans to implement?
It seems system mode root renders the device unbootable according to reports from my tester.
Question, if I modify the supersu script to mount su.img from /system am I likely to hit issues?
Seems a strange query I know.
Reason is we have a Samsung device that for some reason will not boot from a source built custom Nougat kernel. Not sure if this is related to AVB yet or something else.
However we can get a half assed TWRP to boot with the stock kernel.
Only problem is, no matter what, only /system can be mounted and accessed with write permission due to permission denied issues with the rest of partitions. Pretty sure this is an SELinux issue.
Meaning systemless root cannot be installed as normal. No access to /data or /cache.
I can patch the boot.img ramdisk manually for systemless, but for root to work I would need to push su.img to system and mount it from there.
Is it possible to still mount su.img from system if I modify the ramdisk init as required?
The other avenue is to flash su.img to /data or /cache via ODIN.
If it was flashed to /cache would supersu automatically pick up its location and copy it to /data or would a flag need to be set?
Just trying to keep my options open here.
