    I am trying to edit my build.prop to change the av to false but I keep getting "this operation requires elevated permissions. try changing to root access mode." I went into developers settings turn root access on, checked supersu. Use search button (this search button sucks compare to other forums btw). It is the annoying spotify buzzing sound that is pissing me off. How do I get this to work?

    no one? Let me note that I google'd as well and there is no settings in the current ES file explorer to allow root access. At least I clicked every single option to expand and see nothing. I also tried another file explorer. Not working as well.

    Did you try TOOLS / ROOT EXPLORER ?

    After update via Cyndelta, SuperSu want to update also some files ( there is the choise Normal/TWRP). Open SuperSu, if available and update if required; check the permission in SU for the spec.App. ; check in Dev-Settings, if root is allowed for Aps; last but not least -> you can reflash via TWRP the SuperSU.zip ( at min. Version 2.40 )

    For my person, I use the "Root Explorer" - it's more my favorite.

    Well I fixed the problem. Nothing I did and all file managers didn't work. I reflashed my whole phone and rerooted. Then it worked. I did reinstall supersu in the beginning, it didn't work as well. I checked if it was latest update, it was. I don't know what caused it but lets just say it was all for a waste because, I still have the buzzing sound after ripping my hairs out just to do this only to find out it still buzzes.
