    i already and successfully install the TWRP and install SuperSu via flash recovery but supersu is not working as expected because of Selinux is in enforcing mode. i also apply zipinit to have support for init.d and create a script to disable Selinux boot… but this also is n ot working…

    After dumping the boot partition and open it with a Hex Editor i found that in the boot image we this line:


    And this line is forcing selinux in enforcing mode during boot.

    Am wondering if you had the same issue or is it someting that has been added in my version of phone as it is a custom version for my ISP.

    Am looking for a boot image without the selinux enforcing
