Google Pretty cool: an alpha image of Android 4.2 from the leaked LG Nexus device includes SELinux. "According to the layout xml, SELinux will have a status readout tacked-on to the current About Phone screen. It will now list 'SELinux Status' at the very bottom, right under 'Kernel version' and 'Build Number'. If you're wondering why there are 3 options and not just 'on' and 'off', 'Permissive' is a logging mode, which will tell you when it would have blocked something, but won't actually block things. The other key piece of information to get from the string file is that this is an optional mode, don't go around saying that Google is shutting down root functionality or anything. This is for security conscious enterprise and government-types and probably won't be enabled on consumer phones."

I also don't like how I can't upvote stuff in a thread I decided to comment in. Just because I decided to make my own comment doesn't mean other people don't also have valid points worth an upvote.


It's to stop people voting up or down things that agree or disagree with them. We all like to think everyone is even handed, but it's not true.
