Have to mount the system with this command in adb shell:
mount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock6 /system
What exactly are you trying to do? Seems like it might be easier with a file explorer that has root access. With that you can mount the system, copy stuff in, change the permissions and reboot. Works for a lot of things on most devices, but depends on the ultimate goal.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s
