How can I root PA 6.0.1 in system mode? I am suning a custom kernel. When I flash latest supersu, it always install in systemless mode.
I know that for obtaining system mode, you have to make sure that /data/.supersu doesnot exist. I cannot find that file in PA. However there is a supersu folder´╗┐

Search for compatibility mode on this thread or the beta thread it must been answered many times by now.

This may be the problem:

Code:

-rw------- root     root     33554432 2016-07-17 01:52 su.img
[email protected]:/data # resize2fs su.img 96M                                    
resize2fs 1.42.9 (28-Dec-2013)
The filesystem is not need to resize.It is very close to size to resize
Then again, maybe that's because the image is in use on the phone. If I 'adb pull' it to my laptop, I can resize it there without issue.

I'm a bit out of touch with the SuperSU news (only been installing via Play Store) and the search function didn't give me much info on my question.

I'm currently running a stock 5.1.1 rom, so now the 2.76 stable flashable zip here is auto-systemless right, and to edit the settings I'll need the Play Store manager, because the zip did not install the app itself. Am I right?

On a live system with USB debugging enabled you do from A shell on your computer with your phone connected through USB

Code:
adb reboot-bootloader
Code:
fastboot boot path-to-recovery-image
Now it will boot your TWRP recovery without it being installed on your phone

I thought that this didn't work on (some) Samsung devices. Am I wrong? It's an S7 Edge in this case.

2.76 when flashed through recovery goes through a series of checks to decide if it should/could be installed systemless. Else it installs as a system app. The apk through the play store updates an existing root install. They both have the settings available after install. The play store apk is included in the flashable zip.

I see two TWRP images for Samsung galaxy S7 on the selection page.
The normal S7 and the edge both with exynos based processor so if you don't have the Qualcomm version it should work don't know the procedure for Qualcomm based processor devices

But there is a thread with descriptions on it.

Ha, sorry, no that's not what I meant. I meant that I don't believe that fastboot works on Samsung devices. At least, that's what I've read, so I've never actually tried it.

No I am not aware of that I guess you should try to find out.

@grep_i is correct, my command was incorrect.

That's what I thought too but I tried it last week and couldn't get it working with that command with adb version 1.0.32
It only worked with

Code:
fastboot boot recovery.img
So maybe try both, one of them will work for a version
