I'll probably end up flashing 2.79 when I need root and removing it afterwards, to avoid automatic update from Google Play. As long as I don't update the su binary it works, it's just that the notification about the update keeps popping up.
I was having trouble installing SuperSU on this device.
With adb over ethernet I was able to use su, but installing using the embedding method https://su.chainfire.eu/#embed-exploit failed.
unzip was where the script did not expect it (/system/xbin/unzip) and boot partition wasn't in any by-name subfolder (only in /dev/block/boot)
Here is what I needed to do (in adb shell):
mount -o remount,rw /system
mount -o remount,rw /
ln -s /dev/block/boot /dev/block/by-name/boot
ln -s /system/xbin/unzip /sbin/unzip
unzip /path/to/supersu.zip META-INF/com/google/android/* -d /tmp
sh /tmp/META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary dummy 1 /path/to/supersu.zip
then it was successful.
It would be nice if the update_binary script was ready for these different locations
