Unhappy [Q] Can't uninstall system apps with Titanium Backup in CM11

Hello,

i finally got my Nexus 5 today and first thing I did was unlocking the bootloader, installed TWRP custom recovery, flashed CM11-nightly and Franco Kernel (r31).

Next thing I usually do is to uninstall some apps with Titanium Backup (Pro). But I can't uninstall any system apps (e. g. Browser.apk). Titanium says "successful" but after refreshing the application list, the app is still there.

Does anyone have an idea what is going wrong here? Is it a problem with CM11's superuser or with Titanium Backup?

Thanks.

What happens if you delete the file with a file manager and reboot?
 

Hammerhead Firmware: Google
USB Drivers: Google
ADB+ADB Drivers: 19.0.1 (API 19) + Koush's Universal ADB Drivers v6
Recovery: TWRP | Stock KOT49H zip
Superuser: Chainfire | Mirror

I used Solid Explorer as a file manager and tried to delete /system/app/Browser.apk. The root-confirmation (CM11 superuser) pops up, asks for superuser (i grant) and Solid Explorer deletes the file without error. But the file is still there (without reboot).

Issue with superuser?

Edit: Stop... I noticed /system is mounted as read-only.

I tried to analyze the problem... and the only conclusion is, that my superuser is not working. Also Super SU ist not working. I also flashed Omni ROM instead of CM11 with no success. I used an older version of TWRP without success. Does anybody has an idea?

Edit: Before with Stock ROM and Super SU it was working.

I don't know why I'm the only person with this issue... But I solved it with the following steps:

1. Flash CM11 (nightly)
2. Start the OS
3. Reboot to recovery and wipe cache/dalvik
4. Install "Super SU"
5. Start the OS

Titanium Backup is asking for root rights. Other apps also didn't get root in CM11. Whenever I install a new CM11 nightly root rights for TB are gone and I have to do the same steps again.

But why no one else has this problem? I googled like crazy. Is it CM11 or me?

Did you leave out Franco kernel this time?

Changing selinux to "permissive" did solve all my problems. I also had issues with other applications.

How can I change the selinux mode directly in the CM11-Zip? Under Redhat/CentOS is a configuration file unter /etc/selinux. In CM11 I can't find something similar.

And how it comes that this issue is not well-known? I think there are more 4.4 KK / CM11 users with problems.

No problem. I know that problem was starting to annoy me. Got the idea from playing with a new Note 3. The newer Samsung 4.3 roms are like that too. If you don't change to Permissive then Xposed and other mods won't work either.

I guess it's possible that it's just something strange with certain CM11 and Franco kernel combos?
