Can anyone tell me a solution how to mount /system rw successfully over shell?
For posterity, I'm adding what worked for me on LolliKat (which is cm11) for doing this from the phone's console/shell: I had to use the command `/system/bin/mount` rather than just `mount`. Once that had been done once, the other methods would work fine until reboot. (I was doing this because somehow link2sd had lost its ability to "update mount scripts" and "integrate system app updates".
These all worked for me:
/system/bin/mount -o remount,rw /system
/system/bin/mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /system
/system/bin/mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /system /system
/system/bin/mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock8 /system
More info (in my own context) here and here:
