But ... Busybox fails to install.
And if I remount /system RW, and mess in there a bit (like mkdir /system/tmp ), the mess is removed after reboot. Changes are not permanent.
Must I change my su app for superuser mentionned in the FAQ of the section (via recovery) ? Are there things to do before this migration ?
Other possible issues ?
I am used to fully unlocked HTC Sensation, where I changes to /system are easily permanent. But it was done using an exploit, few before HTC allowed rooting officially. Rooted M8 does not seem as much friendly ...
I *really* need busybox to work, and make permanent changes to /system. I am stuck.
The /system partition is write protected on stock, meaning you can't add, modify, or delete files there. To disable this, you need to flash a kernel or rom with this disabled. Pretty much all sense based roms/kernels will state this in the features. I believe S-Off also disables it if you want to go the extra mile.
PS: Write protection is disabled in recovery. That is why superuser/root could be installed there.
PPS: Here is the kernel I run (protection disabled): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2705613
