My Desire Z seems to have suddenly gone into READ ONLY mode, It starts up fine with no problem ,but I'm unable to install anything new, and anything that seems to be deleted magically re-appears at the next boot.

I also am unable to Go to Recovery, and resetting the phone to factory default does absolutely nothing.

Any help will be apreciated!.

Did you tried to mount it on a computer?
Reboot without the SD card inside?

As you're not rooted, a fix permission can't be done...

It's not the SD card that is readonly - it's the device itself, any Text message that is deleted reappears at the next boot, it is not possible to install anything new and a factory reset does absolutely nothing - the device just boots up the same as it was before the factory reset!.
