how to add a user to boundary built android lollipop5.0.0

Hi

Anyone knows how to

1) create/add more users to the boundary built android lollipop 5.0.0 image?

   I know the answer for this is with the pm and am commands.

  • Create new user: pm create-user User_Name.
  • To switch between users: am switch-user User_ID.
  • To get the list of all the users: pm list users.
  • To delete a user: pm remove-user User_ID.

   but, I was expecting the root user command prompt will be changed from # to $, when I switch from root to a newly

   created user, say 'newuser', however, this was not happened, it was still with # prompt. Am I really switched?

 

2) there is a service called 'su_daemon' running on that image, what is this 'su_daemon' do?

 

3) since the 'su' and the 'busybox' command were both existed in the image, how can I assign some apks with superuser right while others are still with normal user right - Just the same as a rooted tablet.

 

 

thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Damien
