Both. I don't know how much SafeRoot has changed since I used it, so I don't know if it still installs Busybox. If it does, it should show the custom screen upon a full reboot.

Also, just because Root Checker says you have root access, doesn't mean you actually do.. I've had that issue myself. The easiest way to know is to actually try adding or removing something to or from system/app. If it doesn't work, you don't really have root.

what apps, most notably VZW Bloat, on S3, Stock, are safe to freeze? Would like to at least freeze cloud stuff i don't use and don't want to keep turning off to save battery.

any help would be appreciated

FYI: easiest root method ever!

Hopefully this gives you theinfo you want. Read this: http://www.note2forum.com/forum/gala...bloatware.html

The custom status is set by an application that runs after boot that scans your phone for non standard files. What indication you get of the status does depend on the carrier.
You can always look at the status in settings/about to see if it is normal or custom.

Folks,
I'm starting to see a trend toward off-topic questions here. Please remember that this is a Development thread.

This thread should not be used for questions not related to rooting your phone, for example what to do next, what bloat to remove, etc.

Saferoot works on a lot of different devices and we can't answer every post-root question related to all of those devices.

If it feels like a device specific Q&A, then it probably belongs in a Q&A thread.

I'm not calling anyone out here, but I do want to focus back on topic before the mods have to step in.

SELinux Permissive vs Enforcing
I have rooted my phone using Saferoot, the process was easy and well documented. BIG THANKS FOR THAT .

After root I found some apps that require root are not working due to the SELinux Enforcing mode. After searching through this forum, I could not find if the root script should have updated the SELinux mode to Permissive.

In my case, It did not and I would like to know if I can change the state to Permissive and if it would help or not.

I tried some apps, but they were not able to change the state to Permissive.

please advise.

When I used saferoot it was also still enforcing. You could try an xposed module like Wanam to set it to permissive

Not working on S4 ENA4
I tried this method but got the error: device not listed or supported

Im on i9505XXUENA4.

Just had device for ONE day and already freaking out because of Samsung's apps.
It's like half the battery is being used for apps I don't even want on MY(not samsung's!!) phone.

Got it with a contract for 2 years, so I don't want to trip the KNOX warranty void.


So if anyone has other ideas for the i9505XXUENA4, you're my savior.
Thanks!

Works on ATT Galaxy Note 8.0 SGH-I467
Ran this routine on my S3 running 4.3 and worked perfectly and easily, so I grabbed my galaxy note 8.0 running 4.1.2 to see if that would work because I did not see it listed anywhere and sure enough, ROOT! Thanks!

Try it. If it doesn't work nothing will happen. It is tottaly harmless. Knox won't be triggered. But it won't work if you are on kitkat.
