Default [Q] Phone rebooting upon /system modifications?

I am brand new to android and recently rooted my M8. I was trying to change the /system/customize/acc/default.xml to hide the NFC icon and when I attempted to save the file the phone rebooted and later asked if I wanted to send HTC an error report.

I have tried this with several file managers which all have root priveleges. It seems as though this happens when trying to modify anything in /system. Am I missing something obvious?

I did the mod that exists currently and while it makes the icon transparent it still takes up space on the status bar. I was trying to set the nfc_show_icon setting to zero. Nothing is screwed up I just can't change the file.

the m8 has system write protection, wait for an insecure kernel/module to be made or use custom recovery and adb to make changes within /system
