I have installed Ubuntu touch on my flo via multirom. Everything is running great except, I cannot figure out how to access root (directory). When I try to remount root it spits out that it is write protected as read only. Does anyone know how to make root writeable? I would really like to be able to use apt-get.

I am also interested in wether or not ADB is supposed to work with Ubuntu Touch, so if either of these questions could be answered I would be gratefull. Google has been no help to me.

I have found my answer. First off, in the updated version of TWRP for multirom, in the multirom subsettings there is a tick box for ADB access. Doing this will let you connect to your Ubuntu rom through ADB.

Once I figured that out everything was rather easy.

adb shell
cd /
cd userdata
touch .writable-image
After that I reboot my device and I was able to use apt-get again. Hope this helps someone else.
