I have the same issue with my Vodafone Smart Ultra 6. I have root and system has read write access according to ES File Explorer. But any app that has root privileges, writes just fine without errors. However, if I close the app and load it again, or reboot, any changes are lost. So if I remove a system app using a root uninstaller it will say the app has been uninstalled. But it's still there. Drives me insane.

Exactly the same on the Smart Ultra 6.

Was hard enough to get it rooted but seems any changes to the system partition/file system just don't stick. Short of putting a custom rom on it I'm stuck for ideas.

I'd love to know what causes this behaviour.

Any updates here? I just started running into this after updating to the 7.1.1 January factory image on my 5x. The weird thing is when i reboot in TWRP it all looks fine but when I look at my system directory from Android the boot-from-recovery.p is still there and my build.prop changes aren't...push TWRP again, boot to recovery read build.prop and it's my edited version. wtf?

I have found a solution which works in my case.

Edit build prop using any root explorer and save it.
Now once again edit the file with different root explorer app like amaze or es explorer with some comment line like
#comment
and save it.
Now it should prevent the build prop from resetting after a reboot.

Is it normal that my build.prop has the permissions -rw------ ?
This could be the problem.

Did you ever find the solution to this? I'm having the same problem..all changes reset with every reboot and the file's permission is like -rw-----

I found out that the build.prop is reset at shutdown on my device. So i am changing it when its off, with twrp flashable zip. An other way is to make it via adb on the pc, but its with twrp too.
You can search for tutorials in interent like
- flashable build.prop
- change build.prop via adb in twrp mode
For me the flashable zip work fine.
