Default Read only init.d script

Anyone know how to save settings through Voltage control to the init.d script? I have an error message coming when I choose save to boot settings and check on init.d script. It says that it cannot write to mkdir said it's read only.

Yeah you have to mount system as rewritable. Then when you are done mount it as read only.

This is a VERY BASIC thing to know when working custom roms on Android. I suggest google as a good starting point. Not sure if you know, but you can use google to only search this website if you prefer that interface over XDA's built in search (I know I do).

Here is a link to get you started.

I have better terminal emulator running as root, do you have an address or link to find the right command lines, or do you know them by any chance?

To me it seems that an Android development site should have more direct answers. Knowledge should not be a consequence.
