Now opensourced under gplv3! GITHUB
Get it in f-droid F-DROID page (v10 probably won't be there until release of stable gradle 4.0 and buildtools 26)

Now available on the XDA Labs! XDA Labs page (UPD: somebody released a fork without changing packagename so you can't get it there yet -_-)
Apk from github app-release-v10.apk - (as that's the only way to distribute it until I get control of my packagename on xda labs)


There are lots of folks around who already has KitKat on their devices. But kitkat comes with new secutity enhancement, SELinux, put into "enforcing mode". Maybe This thing is good from the point of security, but it breaks some Root Apps, like my Ultimate Dynamic Navbar, so I created this app.

What does it do? This app can change modes of SELinux:
Run app, give root access, select the mode you want SELinux to be in(permissive or enforcing) and that's all. Every time you reboot your device app will execute the script to change SELinux to the mode you've selected. Simple and stupid.


know issues:
- [THEORETICALLY] doesn't work with Samsung KNOX.

Post your results once you've tested. Cuz I'm on custom kernel now that has SELinux completely disabled and didn't really tested this app

I don't sure the string there will actually change. Better test by executing this in some terminal emulator:

Code:
su
/system/bin/getenforce

Just flashed stock kernel. Indeed. Works only untill reboot. After that - no Will work on a fix now!


UPD: Switched few times into different states - it works. Works when device is booted, works after reboot(wait till notification appear - go to "about phone".). Rebooted ~10 times to check it out - everything works fine for me(galaxy nexus, android 4.4)!

Dunno, guys. Maybe that's root denial in your case or something like this?
Waiting for more replies.

Ok, guys. Checked on few different devices. Can finally say that this thin works for every 4.3++ device, except Samsung KNOX-enabled ones.
Looking for knox fix now
