Here lately Google has made it a bit more tricky to root AOSP. Instead of just simply being able to flash to newer versions of Android we have to wait for the inner workings to be fixed. We have only had the Developer Preview of Android M for a few days, but Chainfire has already almost rooted it. He stated on twitter that root (with SELinux enforcing) is not ready, but there are some modified kernels that exist that will work. It was a few days wait for the Lollipop root, and I imagine it will be the same here. Keep it posted for updates on this!
