Default Mounting System Read/Write

With s-off you can write to /system should you wish.

Code:
adb shell
su
mount -o rw,remount -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p45 /system
will do the business and give you full read/write access to allow you to delete those pesky apps HTC want you to have at all costs. Facebook and Twitter system apps? No thanks!

Yes. Just miss out the adb bit, obviously.

I use FX File Explorer with the Root add-on.
You can then simply choose to open the system folder as root and then there's an option to remount R/W.
