Default [Q] Unable to write to "/system" on rooted LC4

I am unable to write to my system partition on LC4. I flashed the superuser zip. Am I missing something?

Are you trying to push with adb?

What are you using to write to /system ? Root explorer ? Make sure you mount partition as R/W.

Mount as read/write doesn't work.

Was unable to get it to work no matter what I did until I flashed the Alien Base and am going from there. Decided to stop wasting time and just use that as a starting block.

Here try this.. It has worked for me many times. Now i dont have any problems with losing root. It seems that when you wipe data/cache/dalvik and install a custom rom, or if you try to flash a custom rom without doing any wipe and get FC or any issues and you boot into CWM and do a wipe of any kind, this inculdes using any type of wiping program.

I know many people will say that this is not the problem, but i have tried numerous things to keep root with no luck until i did this and it works. This problem keeps popping it ugly head up every now and then (when i try to install a custom rom and have to do a wipe of anykind, but i just do what is in the above post and problem gone. What developers should do is when posting a custom rom, tell the people what version/type of root they used, and what version of busybox they are using, so that everyone can be on the same page and setting as the developers. Just my 2 cents. ( Flame On - if you want to build your post count or have nothing better to do.)
