LinearCSVMC(C=1) (I guess you used that one),

I want to bring to your attention though a recent nice exploration of
validity of t-tests (or bootstrap/permutation) on accuracy (or any other
information metric) for stating typicality of the discovered effect at
population level:
here is my quick replication of the initial simulation
So if in your design you could use cross-subject cross-validation you
might be much better ;)
