Can I change category permissions in MySQL/phpadmin without corrupting assets table in Joomla 2.5?

We are using Joomla 2.5 for a unique application where we had to create thousands of categories. The only issue is that we cannot change the permissions of a particular category using the Admin Console because it times out. We just want to change the permission of Edit from "Inherited" to "Allowed".

Question is, if we worked around the Admin Console, and changed the permissions directly in the DB, would that corrupt the Asset Table?

The category we are changing the permissions on is not a parent of any other category.

This is not a common task.
