My init is making the eris persistent, I don't know if the /system/bin/eris is important to keep android's good functionality but at this moment this "service" (the quotation marks are because i stopped the service from the terminal but the process of the path /system/bin/eris is persistent I just can't kill it) I wanna know if is possible to kill it once for all or at least cat the init binary or eris bin.

By the way i want to kill it because eris is listening to a port before even the initial page of the phone shows up, so likely it is receiving and sending info to an unkown machine

  • eris isn't an Android's service but muse be added by OEM. Which phone is it and what Android version it has? You can delete service's *.rc file or add disabled keyword to stop from auto starting. Adding oneshot will stop it from restarting once killed. – Irfan Latif Mar 17 '19 at 5:04
  • it is an Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime with the default android (I don't know the version) how do I edit the init tho? Where do I write oneshot/disabled ? – mranon Mar 17 '19 at 5:12
  • You need to find out the .rc file in which this service is stated. Common locations are /, /system/etc/init and /vendor/etc/init. You need root privileges to edit init's .rc files. – Irfan Latif Mar 17 '19 at 6:06
  • First I wanna thank you for all the support you're giving me, second I actually did find and cat the iti.rc and to my surprise eris has both: disabled and oneshot attached to it. Still the process keeps coming back, I'll check more info in the etc. One thing I noticed is that the /etc/eris.confg is missing the "wlan0" line – mranon Mar 17 '19 at 6:26
  • I'm going to try to kill one the processes being called by the init and put an strace to the init process, this may point me to the root of the problem, since eris is a oneshot service some other process must be calling for the init – mranon Mar 17 '19 at 6:40
