     1= psneuter (by scotty2) =
     2
     3Description from the code:
     4{{{
     5// psneuter.c, written by scotty2.
     6
     7// neuter the android property service.
     8
     9// ashmem allows us to restrict permissions for a page further, but not relax them.
     10// adb relies on the ability to read ro.secure to know whether to drop its privileges or not;
     11// if it can't read the ro.secure property (because perhaps it couldn't map the ashmem page... :)
     12// then it will come up as root under the assumption that ro.secure is off.
     13// this will have the unfortunate side effect of rendering any of the bionic userspace that relies on the property
     14// service and things like dns broken.
     15// thus, we will want to use this, see if we can fix the misc partition, and downgrade the firmware as a whole to something more root friendly.
