Exclamation Read only File System Problem

Hi everyone,

First of all, I would like to wish Merry Christmas to the Community Members...

Secondly, I am stuck on a very irritating problem: Read Only File System

I Rooted my phone, Flashed CWM 6.0.3.1 a month ago. Since then, I tried various ROMs here and I found this problem in all ROMs I've tried. Basically, I am not able to Change my System Files.
  • I tried ES File Explorer to overwrite but it says: Permission Denied!
  • I tried all File manager, but failed!
  • I tried mount -o remount,rw /system but neither it changed the permissions, nor it gave any error in Terminal.
  • I used Terminal and tried the chmod command, but it says Read Only file system
  • I tried to make a Flashable ZIP using this method, but even this doesn't change the files.(No, it does not show any error while flashing the zip through CWM)

Actually, I was trying to overwrite the boot animation, but the thing is that my whole system seems to be Read Only.

So, I would like to ask for help regarding this.

Thank You

Best Regards,
THAKUR

DONATE TO ME
flashed roms. ..? ehh is your bootloader unlocked...?
second it looks like a root problem . try this method to gain root again (if you're already rooted ,then go to supersu and in settings do permanent unroot) ,it roots your phone in 28~35 seconds ,

Ok. So the problem was solved on the same time as I posted this thread.

What worked for me:

When I tried mount -o remount,rw /system, I was still not able to Fix permissions through ES File Explorer. Then, When I tried mount -o remount,rw /system 2 times, and then I used the Default File manager(Cyanogen File Manager) to change permissions, it was working.

Ok. So the problem is solved now.

Thread can be marked as SOLVED

Anuj, Thanks though
