If I systemless root (no modification done to
/system partition) a nexus device, would I be able to able to set capabilites on executables without changing the original kernel binary ?
I often want to manage files without restrictions from my terminal (require
CAP_DAC_READ_SEARCH). however, I also want to not use the superuser.
The required things are tools for setting caps along kernel support for using them (it doesn’t relies on other user space things).
The problem is, I don’t own such device. So I can’t tell if it would work on any of
Nexus 5X Nexus 6P Nexus 9 Pixel C.
