# Remount system as Read/Write

(Credits go to Knoxville and others from Telegram for this method)

For remounting, we need to use the alt-f1 console or built in terminal.

For Bliss 15.x: Boot with DEBUG=1, and mount remount the install partition:

mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/sd(x)
cd /src
mount system.sfs /tmp
cp /tmp/system.img system.img
umount /tmp
rm -f system.sfs 

or if you want to backup original system image

mv system.sfs system.bak 

Now we sync the filesystem and reboot:

reboot -f

Upon reboot, you will have R/W on system

Once we have a system.img and no system.sfs, we need to use the built in terminal app (with su permissions granted), and type:

cat /proc/mounts

Then look for the /dev/loop# where we see mounted at "/", likely followed by "ext4 ro....". Note that as we will need to use that for the next command. Now type:

mount -o remount,rw -t ext4 /dev/loop# /

Or for older Bliss versions (14.x, 11.x) use:

mount -o remount,rw -t ext4 /dev/loop# /system

Then you can edit the system files you need. When you are done, you can remount as RO:

mount -o remount,ro -t ext4 /dev/loop# /

Then test to verify changes stick
