Will edit thread thanks for info.

The third time I flashed to get the log, I attempted to mount /system as read only, since it didn't mount properly otherwise. The onscreen messages looked the same anyway...successful flash, but could not mount /system. And upon leaving TWRP, it warned that no OS was installed. Nothing different for all intents and purposes.

Thanks, I will try your TWRP and report back.

UPDATE:
Your TWRP made all the difference:

Code:
joel@cybaryme:~$ Build/android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/adb uninstall eu.chainfire.supersu
Success
joel@cybaryme:~$ Build/android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/adb shell
shell@dory:/ $ su
root@dory:/ #
Thank you!

No problem guess SuperSU those require system access to work it seems to be for SE Linux patching and also the build.prop

Since the new wear has a read only system, where do the supersu and busybox get installed?

SuperSU is now system less if you haven't been following it recently so system access is not required also bits of supersu are stored in the kernel disk and others just at /data. Busybox is stored with the SU mounted image to /su/xbin once installed via the app
