Hi,

No matter what I do, I can't remount "/system" and "/" to RW.

Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

I am running on KK 4.4.2 version 14.3.A.0.757.

My Current File System Status

You obviously do not have the permission to do that, so the question is, are you rooted, and if so root again and be sure to have the latest SuperSU installed with updated binaries.

What kernel are you on?

How did you get root?

Bootloader unlocked?

My kernel version is 3.40-perf jackie099@ubuntu #1 and bootloader is unlocked.

I gained root by downgrading my firmware to .532 version and install rooting using a program called Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v33. After rooting is successful, install dualrecovery and upgrade my firmware to .757 version by flashing a specific zip file via recovery followed by flash FTF with Flashtool.

Am I doing it correctly? Is there a better way to do it?

I would try to reflash supersu and see if that fixes it

I'm not sure. I'm having the same issue, sort of. I can mount /system to read write easily but can't mount back to read only. Getting "resource busy" message. Running a 4.4.2 LG G2 ROM. Could it have anything to do with how /system is formatted within TWRP recovery? Idk.. Luckily not being able to mount as read only isn't exactly an issue but more of a nuisance.

Edit:: Found a solution minutes after posting.

Code:
su
mount -o remount,rw /system # works fine
mount -o remount,ro /system # resource busy error
mount -o remount ro /system # works fine without comma
With this knowledge I can go through and fix a few scripts that have the comma between remount and ro. Not sure why this is as it's always worked fine ever since my OG DROID.
