Agreed with custom development, now, average users do not even know the implications of Linux FSs as read only. This is directly aimed against power users: Having to reboot to recovery each time you need to touch anything is ridiculous. Instead, they could make life easier using an additional control(s), root like warning.
Crippling existing functionality is like trying security through obscurity, just wrong... Users should be able to choose if they want RO system and (old discussion) root.

yeah, I agree there should be an option, but it is kernel level so it is tough

Can I use viper4android on this? If yes, how? I tried to install the sel changer thing but it told me it will harm my phone if I install it. So I cancel. Lol.

if you need to change build.prop for dpi here's what i do...

In TWRP...
1. mount system
2. adb shell
3. cd system
4. paste/type this - sed -i '/ro.sf.lcd_density=480/c ro.sf.lcd_density=420' /system/build.prop <--- 420 will give you access to +/- 20 increments in display settings and it's what the 5X uses
5. reboot


I was going to give M a shot but not being able to make modifications to /system would drive me nuts.

Try aicp, i can edit build.prop to reduce dpi. Rom very stable too. Seach g+ for dwl link.

5. reboot

Or just install a terminal app like Material Terminal, run it and then type the following line and press enter:
wm density 360
(or whatever dpi you want).
You don't even need root to do it that way. It worked for me, and I don't even remember needing to reboot. You only need to do it once too.
