Afternoon i am having issues getting permissions to stick after reboot for the build.prop file in /system.

I am running chmod 644 /system/build.prop from adb shell on a ARHD 52 s-off latest 401 firmware.

This is to fix an issue with mx player when trying to use hw+.

If i chmod the file and hot reboot the permissions stay the same,
However when i full reboot they do not and the revert to just root.

Hope this is clear

thanks John

You need a custom kernel with /system writable if you want the changes to stay after reboot.

edit: oh wait arhd should already have this feature.... nvm
