my android is a Marshmallow 6.0.1 (EDIT: It is Samsung!) I just unpacked the boot.img and edited the build.prop by setting:


repacket it, flashed it and everything is in it's place.

I no longer get the adbd cannot run as root in production builds error

BUT If I run adb root I get the restarting adb as root and nothing happens afterwards.

Can't adb remount because Not running as root. Try "adb root" first.

what else do I need to change?

EDIT: I just ran adb root again and this time the phone disconnected the USB:

error: protocol fault (couldn't read status): Connection reset by peer
error: write failure during connection: Connection reset by peer
