Here we are presenting How to Enable Root on CM13/CyaongenMod 13 Marshmallow ROM on an android devices. CyanogenMod has in-built root since CyanogenMod 12 (The Lollipop Vesrion) but that is disabled by default. The user need to enable root access on their phones manually as per their need.
The CyanogenMod ROM comes has an inbuilt Super User manager since CyanogenMod 12 (The Lollipop Vesrion) which lets you enable or disable root access as per your need or selectively allow root access for either Apps only or ADB only or Apps/ADB both. You cannot see these settings unless you enable the Developer Options on your CyanogenMod ROM. You need not to worry because this process is really very simple and it will be like cake walk for you.
Why do I need to Enable ROOT settings on CM13/CyanogenMod 13 Marshmallow ROM:
I don’t know if you really know or not, CyanogenMod is the first most popular custom ROM for android devices which comes with no bloatware (un-necessary applications). Also the CyanogenMod ROM has many in-built added features unlike stock Android ROMs (AOSP ROMs). With the ROOT access on your Android phone you can further change some more settings on your phone, for example: You can tweak build.prop settings, you can customize your boot animation, you can manually change CPU frequency settings, you can add your own init.d boot scripts etc. There are many more to add on to this list.
Simplifying the above statement, if you are a developer or an advanced user or very keen to learn all these things then yes you should enable the ROOT access. With the ROOT access a user can modify the system settings and this is the potential reason that the ROOT access is disabled by default.
Here comes how to Enable ROOT on a CM13/CyanogenMod 13 Marshmallow ROM:
The ROOT access settings are actually provided under Developer options in CyanogenMod ROMs. Developer options are the same as comes in stock Android Devices. So, you need to Enable the developer option on your android device first.
Enabe Developer Options on Android and then enable ROOT settings:
