My phone is S-Off
I replaced the default animation file with mine and when rebooted non of them showd (default - mine) instead of that a black image with big android word animation

You replaced thee hTC_bootup.zip in /system/customize/resource, right?
Maybe the boot animation you made is not as the same format as the stock one in MM, or maybe more permission has to be given ( eg rwxrwxrwx ) to make the boot animation come alive?

Thats may be true
I will try my best to see if i can make the same format
I searched google but could't find anyone that changed boot animation on Marshmallow even on other devices

Have you tried giving it the most permission, does it work?

editing build.prop in /system

another /system related issue: i edited build.prop in /system using MiXplorer File Manager. i changed the line ro.sf.lcd_density=320 to ro.sf.lcd_density=260. i granted root access and the file got saved. i cross-checked this before rebooting. upon rebooting, i was surprised to see the resolution had not changed. on checking build.prop the line was found to be remaining as ro.sf.lcd_density=320 itself. so, how can i effect this dpi change without installing an app?

I also encounter this problem, looks like my theory satisfied.

if anyone really wants to change dpi, use the two files attached here. put them in the same location and flash 'tweakprop-0.5.2.zip' from recovery; you'll get 260 dpi. edit the line ro.sf.lcd_density=260 in the file tweak.prop if you want a different value.

p.s.: .txt has been added to the file tweak.prop to enable uploading here. rename the file to just tweak.prop before use.

edit: credits go to the person who did this. can't recall where i found this tweak; i'm just glad it works for me. enjoy!

Can you also help make a flashable zip for changing ro.build.type from "user" to "userdebug"? I want the hidden split-screen function so much…

i'm not knowledgeable enough; just thinking out loud. maybe experts can help. this is the tweak.prop file:
Code:
# 	 ======================================
# 	| Dynamic automated build.prop editing |
# 	|              --by kl3--              |
# 	 ======================================
#
# Personal file located at /sdcard/0/tweak.prop
#
# For help, please create an issue on https://notabug.org/kl3/tweakprop
# or visit the official XDA-Thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=2664332
#
# If you want to backup your build.prop before editing, uncomment the following line
# or specify a custom path. Already existing backup files will be overridden.
#

BACKUP=y|Y|yes|Yes|YES		# creates /sdcard/build.prop.backup since tweak.prop resides there
#BACKUP=n|N|no|No|NO		# same as commented out, just there for completeness
#BACKUP=/foo/bar/foo.bar	# chose your own path

#
# simply add your entries below
#

# set exactly this entry even if it overrides the already existing value
ro.sf.lcd_density=260
why don't you replace the last line with ro.build.type=userdebug and save it and then flash the tweakprop-0.5.2.zip file?
of course, you should first make a backup before treading uncharted territory. restore the backup if things go wrong.

btw, what is "the hidden split-screen function"? any pics anywhere?
