Just so I understand, is it selinux that prevents you from running mount?

I assume so because root gives you access to everything on the system outside of some selinux stuff (which is set by linux bootloader iirc).

Am I correct?

What is the purpose of "Device Administrators" & can it be leveraged in our quest for root?

No, entirely different concept.

We've successfully got /system mounted as read/write. Please give us some time to figure out ways to package things up. Thanks.

Awesome, hopefully this could lead to more greatness like TWRP and whatever else we could desire down the road. Hopefully you guys are planning some relaxation time after the headache Samsung provided lol

Correct me if I'm wrong, but once we have read write it's just a few edits to get the own unlock button and then unlock the bootloader. Correct?
