Hello,

I would like to install Ubuntu on my Samsung SM-P905 LTE. Therefore I need to enable loop device, because the stock rom doesn't support it. So my questions are: Does the "insmod ext2.ko" work on my device? Or is loop device on "STOCK RELOADED ROM" activated?
Thanks in advance.

Maybe this will help? I am going to try this in hopes of running Ubuntu on my new SM-900. BUT I think the linked approach is NOT what you are asking. It is running Ubuntu through https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nandroid&hl=en which runs Ubuntu while on Android.

Yes, this is exactly the app that I'm using. But it requires loop device enabled. When I try to install ubuntu it says:
Code:
Checking loop device... MISSING
Creating loop device... /data/data/com.zpwebsites.linuxonandroid/files/bootscript.sh[129]: /data/data/com.zpwebsites.linuxonandroid/files/busybox: can't execute: Permission denied
FAILED
Error: Unable to create loop device!
Any ideas how to edit the kernel and enable loop device?

EDIT: I tried "STOCK RELOADED ROM KERNEL", but I got the same error.
I also tried in the terminal: , but it said:
Code:
insmod: can't open '/sdcard/kit/ext2.ko'

I now understand. I tried and got the loop error.

I tried the kernel with loop mod but mobile Odin doesn't work for me and I failed when using vbox xp64.

I remember seeing a kernel for the 10.1 tab pro and will check that out. Another twrp backup then I try. I will report back later...

I installed the kernel modded, then the apk that changes seandroid kernel permission then kubuntu via vnc. Seems cool. Wish I could boot into ubuntu.

This is the kernel. The apk to change the enforcement to permissive is on Google play.search for SELinuxModeChanger

I have honor 4c Marshmallow. Loop devices support is not available. I need to install kali linux. Is there any way to do it? Either by creating loop support by any method or by changing kernel, or if any kali linux system that can run on non loop devices.
