Hi friends;

I have HTC M8 Marshmallow with Sense 7.
I rooted my device with SuperSU 2.65.

But;
I can't edit build.prob file in system folder.
I can't put apk and lib files to system->priv-app folder.

In fact ;
I edited build.prob file in system folder. (I used Root Explorer)
I put apk and lib files to system->priv-app folder.

But, after I rebooted device edited build.prob file returned original and
deleted apk and lib file that I put to system->priv-app folder.:(

Before these applications I mounted system folder R/W

Why did this happen?
How can i solve this?:(

    Because super su is system less root, you won't be able to edit the system files. I don't even know how that mod worked
    You can't edit system files while your device s-on,you need wp module or custom kernel with wp module to edit system

    Some m8 roms have this module implemented ( if not all roms )

    You can use this tool to remove system files
    Reboot to twrp and mount system then connect the device with pc ( usb ) and start the tool from your pc
    Give it a try

    You've got it wrong. Systemless root isn't the reason system is not writable. The same will occur with traditional root.

    The system is write protected on this device (regardless of root method). You need the kernel mode to disable the write protection.

    well thats what happened to me. I rooted with super su, it won't let me edit any build.prop or system files. But after i rooted with system root, it worked

    No, it won't work. Kernels (and therefore kernel mods) are device specific. It won't work, and may harm your phone.

    If the phone is rooted, you can try to mount system in a file explorer app, and apply the desired changes, to see if they stick (survive a reboot). Some folks have had success with that approach.

    Be careful, and backup files accordingly. Or otherwise know how to return to stock, if anything goes wrong. Changes to system under root can result in unpredicted problems.

    Further than that, I probably can't help; as I have no specific knowledge of your device.
