Looking for testers with the T817 model (no ATT or Verizon models) to test a new hack to get root on Samsung stock SElinux Enforcing kernels running Android 5.11 or Android 6.0.
This means the kernel will be stock, so LTE will be unaffected.
Basically what this is about:
Chainfire has released new beta's of Supersu, the latest is 2.52. This new release can root Samsung 5.1.1 roms and Android 6.0 Marshmallow roms.
However to accomplish this a patch needs to be applied to the kernel Ramdisk to allow root with stock kernels.
What does this mean? This means if you have a T817 running Lollipop 5.1.1 then you can gain root and retain LTE connectivity as it uses the stock kernel instead of having to flash a permissive T810 wifi only kernel.
I need someone willing to test the patched Ramdisk and kernel on their device which has 5.1.1 installed.
The procedure is fairly simple all that is required is to flash the new boot.img, then root with Supersu v2.52.
