I've been trying for like hours to unpack and repack a boot.img.
I never made this before, I was reading much (actually too much) on the internet on how getting this done.
So... I downloaded some tools for unpacking and repacking the boot.img and followed this tutorial:
and I suceeded. But when I repack it (WITHOUT modifying ANYTHING), and try to flash the "new" boot.img to the phone, the phone turns on and then shows up on the upper left corner of the screen "KERNEL IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING" and stays there. It goes no further. I simply unpacked it and then repacked it (to see if I made the whole process right, before screwing anything up).
I saw something curious: The original boot.img is 14.3MB and the new boot.img only 14.0MB. Is there anything that got lost in the process? Remember that I set all the "adresses" to the files right.
I also tried without those adresses. Without luck.
The phone is a (Samsung J1) "J120H" with Android 5.1.1.
And the boot image I obtained by downloading the stock rom and unpacking ONLY the "boot.img". Remember: When I flash this file alone, IT WORKS. When I unpack and repack it, it stops working.
Here are the tools which came and my boot.img (unmodified from stock rom):
If anyone can direct me in the right way, I would be very happy.
Or maybe even modify the boot.img for me, set "secure=0" and repack it. Because my main goal is to root the device.
