This will need USB Debugging enabled in the Android Settings.

Until the next reboot.
So far so good. With the (temporary) root prompt available, a generic Android 5.X rooting guide should apply now.
- Downloading the latest Koush OpenSource SU-package from F-Droid
sufrom the APK and
adb pushit to
adb pushthe APK to /sdcard/Download/
- Login as root with
chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
chown root:shell /system/bin/su
- Attempts to run
suresult in this:
error: only position independent executables (PIE) are supported.
- Installing the APK before, or after attempting to run
susucceeds, but complains about the
subinary being out of date.
So, where would I find a newer, clean, "PIE"
su binary? Or am I going about this the wrong way, and there is a newer 'Generic 5.X Temp-Root to Perm-Root' Procedure?
