mount -o remount,rw /system

However this only works if you have a custom "insecure" kernel that allows adb to do root things.

Thanks for the reply!

So, I will write my story here, hopefully to help some other guy in the future!

Basically I was on debug build from AOSP for the N5! And I installed all proprietary files from Google, LG, Qualcomm etc! But camera was faulty! So I decided to flash the stock images from Google! Then I 've lost
adb root
So I flashed the boot image from the debug build I had previously!
adb root works like charm!

to flash it, I used: fastboot flash boot boot.img
