On stock kernel you are unable to make changes to /system partition even with root. This removes that.

Also so this question isn't asked a million times ,"How do I know if the kernel flashed properly?" . Look at your default.prop , it will say ro.secure=0 instead of 1 . Or your changes will stick on reboot. I figure I would just toss that out there before someone felt the need for clarification.
