I am trying to use Linux Deploy on my rooted Galaxy S4 with stock Android 4.4 rom. But when I press install:

Updating configuration file ... done
>>> begin install
Checking mount points ... done
Checking installation path ... done
Making new disk image (1023 MB) ... fail
<<< end: install

I have already checked root permissions, tried to install in internal with /storage/emulated/0 and /storage/emulated/legacy, I have also tried to modify the image size but same results, how can I solve that?

  • try installing in /storage/sdcard1/kali – user73501 Sep 18 '14 at 6:03
  • In my device I don't have /storage/sdcard1, I tried /storage/sdcard0/linux but it doesn't work – Fabiusp98 Sep 18 '14 at 12:17
  • It seems a problem related to Samsung's Touchwiz roms, on Cyanogenmod 11 the software works. Maybe it's related to Knox oe selinux? – Fabiusp98 Sep 20 '14 at 4:39

It's related with the touchwiz kernel, beacuse when I flashed adam kernel it started working. I think it has to do with selinux set on enforcing
