Adam Outler110,532Livestream here: Tearing down two Nexus 7's and transplanting a boardDuring filming of XDATV last week I broke my 16gig Nexus 7 and was immediately useless.   In order to fix it, the cheapest option was to purchase an old 8gig Nexus7 with an immaculate screen.   Today the donor device came in and I'm tearing them both down so as to replace the screen on my 16gig Nexus7.  This is an informal hangout and I'm just doing some work and talking through it.  If you'd like to join in, please do. This will be livestreamed to my YouTube channel at http://youtube.com/outleradam .    Feel free to ask questions and hang out.  If you just want to watch, the link will be here. If you'd like to be a part of the hangout, ping me with a " +Adam Outler add me to your hangout " and you will get in first.  I will blanket-invite my circles about 5 minutes after those who are interested are invited.  Update: pushed two hours. the new time is at the top. Tearing down two Nexus 7's and transplanting a board2013-03-09 04:00:0040

Fredrik Ax1,259The, according  to Google, 300, for me, most relevant persons in my circlesSome time ago +Erik Andersson shared his 492 most relevant people[1] which was an idea I found fun, so I'm doing the same with my 300 most relevant. But I had some trouble compiling this circle, it seems that I can only add or move 200 people around my circles per day. I wonder if Google changed that or if the number is dependent on how many you already have in your circles. Anyway, having 300 in this circle may be stupid then, because if the number is 200 some people who not already have a lot of the profiles in my this circle in theirs, will not be able to add it.Anyway, it's interesting to try to figure how Google comes up with this order of people. I agree that the top ones (when I'm viewing the circle) are absolutely relevant for me, but scrolling down I would peronally have a totally different order of people, and some that did not even make it among the top 300 I would place very high up.-- [1] https://plus.google.com/113538385219043438319/posts/WV3Uszpg9E92013-05-04 14:36:0130044035

Lisa Bimmerz7,038Per request, I am sharing my Galaxy Nexus circle again...It has grown some, since I shared this circle last week. If you ARE in this circle, please add this updated one to your existing Galaxy Nexus circle, and then please share it publicly. The more the merrier - right?! =o)If you have a Galaxy Nexus or are planning to get one, and would like to be included in this circle, simply add this circle name it Galaxy Nexus (or whatever you want), then add yourself to it, and then share it publicly.Please note; if you are not adding people back from this circle and you are in it, then it kind of defeats the point of having a Galaxy Nexus circle. Since Google has removed incoming streams, we will not see your postings shared with us, unless we have mutually added one another to circles.2012-02-04 02:34:323823206
Paul Bennett3,019Presenting my curated list of Android Developers!If you have a shared circle of android developers that you have vetted, please link to it in the comments.

Chris Porter1,212I thought I would go ahead and share my first circle. I wanted it to be my circle of TWiT fans, but apparently Google+ limits the number of people you can share in a circle to 250 (have more than twice that in my TWiT Fans circle). So since Monday nights are All About Android, here's everyone currently in my Android Community circle. Should your name be added too?Chris Porter shared a circle with you.2011-09-27 00:09:311381304

just to apple? nop..

On one hand, where Apple decided to enable hard drive encryption by default, despite the FBI requests not to do so. But on the other, the company is itself putting its users' privacy on risk. The same data Apple collects from the users' searched term on Spotlight will also be forwarded to Microsoft's Bing search engine as Apple freely admits in its terms of service.

Quick SuperSU fix for Nexus5/7 on LPX13D

Here are links to flashable boot.img's that fix SuperSU:

Nexus 7: http://download.chainfire.eu/579/SuperSU/nexus7-razor-lpx13d-kernel.zip

These do not switch your entire system to SELinux permissive mode like some other posted images do. Food for discussions, but I personally prefer it this way.

Of course, you still have to flash the SuperSU ZIP via TWRP, it is not included.

That's all I can do today. I will elaborate over the next few days.

tried to enable SELinux yesterday and it broke everything... here is why

On LPX13D, SELinux, and root

As promised, here are some more details about the current situation.

Why it breaks

Google has really put some effort into better securing Android, and we've seen a lot of SELinux related commits to the AOSP tree over the past months. There is some disconnect between the AOSP tree and actual L preview builds, some things from AOSP are not in the L preview build, and vice versa. Ultimately, it's a pretty good bet these things will mostly align, though.

On most devices and firmwares, SuperSU's daemon is started by the install-recovery.sh service script that runs at system boot time, as user root with the init context. This is what the daemon needs to function.

Recently, they've started requiring all started services to run in their own SELinux context, instead of init. Developers and security guys following AOSP have known this was coming; AOSP builds have been logging complaints about this specific service not having its own context for a while now.

Now this script runs as root, but as the install_recovery context, which breaks SuperSU's operation, as it is a very restrictive context.

In the last AOSP build I have tried (a few weeks old), there were a fair number of other holes that we could use to launch the daemon. At first glance(!), it seems those have all been closed. An impressive feat by the guys working on this, if it proves true.

How to fix it

To fix root, all that really had to be done was ensure the daemon's startup script is run at boot as the root user with the init context.

There are multiple ways to do this, but unfortunately for now it seems that it does require a modified kernel package (changing the ramdisk).

In the modified kernel packages I've posted for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7, the daemon's startup is fixed by commenting out the line in init.rc that forces the install-recovery.sh script to run as the install_recovery context, so now it runs as init again, and all is well.

Repercussions

As stated above, it seems for now that modifications to the kernel package are required to have root, we cannot attain it with only modifications to the system partition.

Combine that with a locked bootloader (and optionally dm-verity) and a device becomes nigh unrootable - exactly as intended by the security guys.

Exploit-based roots are already harder to do thanks to SELinux, and now because of the kernel requirements for persistent root, these exploits will need to be run at every boot. Exploits that make the system unstable (as many do) are thus out as well.

Of course, this is all dependent on OEMs implementing everything exactly right. If a certain OEM doesn't protect one of their services correctly, then we can leverage that to launch the daemon without kernel modifications. While I'm fairly certain this will be the case for a bunch of devices and firmwares, especially the earlier L firmwares, this is not something you should expect or base decisions on. It is now thus more important than ever to buy unlocked devices if you want root.

It might also mean that every firmware update will require re-rooting, and OTA survival mode will be broken. For many (but far from all) devices we can probably automate patching the kernel package right in the SuperSU installer ZIP. We can try to keep it relatively easy, but updating stock firmwares while maintaining root is probably not going to work as easy and fast as it did until now.

Apps need updates

Unsurprisingly, with a new major Android release, apps will need updates. None more so than apps that go beyond the Android API, as root apps do, but even some non-root apps will be affected by the security changes.

As one example, someone posted in the SuperSU thread of a kernel flashing app that didn't work. From the logcat you could see that it was looking for partitions in /dev/block from its normal non-root user and non-init context. That used to be possible, but now it is restricted: normal apps no longer have read access there. 

The solution for that app is actually quite simple: list the /dev/block contents using root instead. But simple solution or not, the app will still need to be updated.

By far most root apps should be updateable for L without too much issue. There are indeed exceptions that will need some special care, but those are rare.

Permissive vs enforcing

The kernel packages I posted for the Nexus 5 and 7 LPX13D  firmware keep SELinux mostly set to enforcing. I say mostly, because SuperSU actually switches a small part of the system to permissive, so apps calling su can do most things without much interference. The details on this are lengthy (yes, your apps will be able to modify policies as well if needed, which should be rare), and I will document these for other developers after L retail release, assuming it will all still work at that time.

Alternatively, you can set the whole system to permissive or otherwise disable SELinux. There are other kernel packages released that indeed do this. The advantage here is that it instantly fixes some apps' issues, as the SELinux based restrictions have all gone the way of the dodo. The disadvantage here is that you've just shut down a major part of the security system of the device.

Some would argue that a device with an unlocked bootloader, root, encrypted modem firmwares of which nobody really knows what they're doing, etc, is inherently insecure, and thus disabling SELinux doesn't make much difference.

I personally disagree with this. While I do agree that these things weaken security down from the ideal level, I would still not disable more security features than I absolutely need to. Just because you cannot eliminate all attack vectors, is no reason to just completely give up on defending against them.

It is of course your own choice if you want to run a permissive system or not. I will strive to keep everything working in enforcing mode though, and I hope other root app developers will do the same - as stated earlier in the post, I believe this is still possible.

You definitely know that something is wrong while you are removing packages with apt-get and suddenly the font in the terminal changes. (also the fact that i can't print screen it to show you :P)
