I was able to mount NTFS drives for both read and write in OS X 10.12.3. But in 10.12.4, it failed

In this example, I used the OS X native NTFS driver. (I used NTFS-3G on Mac before but it was too slow )

sudo mount -t ntfs -o rw,auto,nobrowse /dev/disk2s1 /Users/somebody/Desktop/tmp

Here's the error:

mount_ntfs: /dev/disk2s1 on /Users/somebody/Desktop/tmp: Read-only file system

But actually there is nothing in folder tmp

I don't know whether it's only me who has this error or everyone has the same issue after upgrading OS X to 10.12.4

Do you know how to enable it?

I have tried this on 10.12.5 beta 5 and works OK. Beta 4 did not for me
