How to solve “kernel is not Seandroid enforcing” error message?
You may want to root your Samsung Galaxy device, but it is not successful because there is an error message after you root it. The error message will be “kernel is not Seandroid Enforcing” that appears on the top of the screen. However, you are not the only person who gets this message. All of the Galaxy users who root the device with incompatible files will slightly get this error message. For example, if you want to root your device that already has the latest 5.11 Lollipop update with the CF Auto Root which is apparently only compatible with the 5.0 firmware, then this error message will appear. So, now you know the reasons it.
If you are not trying to fix the message error of “kernel is not seandroid enforcing”, then you will never be able to use your device again despite you restart the device so many times. Of course, you need an idea to solve this problem that may work on most of the Galaxy series such as Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S4, S5, S6, and much more. If you do not want to get stuck on Samsung Logo forever, then you need to follow these two solutions.
The first solution is to do data wiping. In this case, you have to reset your Smartphone to its factory reset but it must be deleting all of the files in the internal memory including app, images, videos as if you buy a new phone. The second solution is to flash the device with special software called Odin Software. This Odin Software is slightly built to solve the error message of “kernel is not Seandroid enforcing”.
