Since having an xperia arc, I have used system tuner pro/es file explorer/titanium backup in order to remove system apps.

However in CM11, I have been having difficulty removing system apps, I get the messages "could not remove application" or "failed to remove application" etc etc depending what app I was trying to remove things with.

I've just discovered why this happens and how to solve it easily.

This may help others in same situation.

So... from googleing a bit I found this thread:

So from what I've read, Kitkat has introduced some security features... I'll cut and paste the rest.
Remember to go say thanks to the dev!

"There are lots of folks around who already has KitKat on their devices. But kitkat comes with new secutity enhancement, SELinux, put into "enforcing mode". Maybe This thing is good from the point of security, but it breaks some Root Apps, like my Ultimate Dynamic Navbar, so I created this app.

What does it do? This app can change modes of SELinux:
Run app, give root access, select the mode you want SELinux to be in(permissive or enforcing) and that's all. Every time you reboot your device app will execute the script to change SELinux to the mode you've selected. Simple and stupid."
