How to change SELinux Mode from Enforcing to Permissive

Alternative title: How to get FlashFire working on CyanogenMod 13


The best app for this is SELinuxModeChanger (SELMC). You can sideload it, but it’s best to get it via the F-Droid marketplace app.

SELMC enables use of apps such as FlashFire – which needs either permissive SELinux or SuperSU – on CyanogenMod (which is incompatible with SuperSU).

Don’t forget to set SELinux back to Enforcing after you’re done using Permissive, as it’s a really important part of Android security.

The above worked on a Samsung SM-G900V running the kltevzw build of CyanogenMod 13.
