Hi all,

Just want to help a bit with the CM12S. Flash the attached zip if you want root in apps and ADB.

I grabbed a debuggable boot.img from the official CM servers here:
Code:
http://builds.cyngn.com/cyanogen-os/bacon/12.0-YNG1TAS0YL-bacon/2263178b74/cm-12.0-YNG1TAS0YL-bacon-boot-debuggable.img
EDIT: New OTA [YNG1TAS17L]:
Code:
http://builds.cyngn.com/cyanogen-os/bacon/12.0-YNG1TAS17L-bacon/e816218e8a/cm-12.0-YNG1TAS17L-bacon-boot-debuggable.img
Then, I simply put them in a flashable zip format together with su binary from the latest CM12 nightly. I have tested it on my own phone and so far, there is no issue.

I have only tested it using TWRP, flash on your own risk.

Credits to @julian_klode:

Note: I initially wasn't aware about the source of the base zip file that I used to pack the necessary files until julian_klode mentioned it in the Q&A thread.
There is no difference between this one and his, just the fact that I update mine manually. So, I think you should follow his thread instead.

Or just flash the SuperSu zip via recovery.

Thank you so much. Puzzle and Dragons doesn't like Supersu, but works perfect with CM's superuser.

Some people, like me, prefer CM's own root. Integration with Privacy Guard is pretty nifty, you know?

I have never tried SuperSU in my OPO Lollipop since I found out about the built-in root support, so I can't say what's wrong with it. Bootloops may be caused by stuck up boot process, which may be caused by kernel.

If I'm not wrong, I remember last time when Lollipop launched that SuperSU need to patch the kernel in a certain way for it to run properly. My solution also works with a different kernel, albeit it is provided officially by Cyanogen.

If you really want SuperSU for some reason, you can try flashing SuperSU and then flash the boot.img from the link above (or extract it from my zip). Latest TWRP will do it just fine.
