Default [Q] adb - OUYA stuck as read-only, why?

Hello beautiful people.

Keep in mind that I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 to do this. I'm trying to transfer my own bootanimation.zip to the OUYA but I can't because the system is set as read-only. adb recognizes my OUYA, if I use "adb devices" it shows the device, but I can't do anything else with it besides that. I read online that if I use "adb remount", it would mount as read/write. I tried that and I got "remount failed: Operation not permitted". I also read something about "adb root", I can't remember what exactly I had to do with that, but I got this "adbd cannot run as root in production builds".

If any more information is needed, please do ask for it. Help is appreciated. Thanks.

After I used that, I tried to push the bootanimation.zip to the OUYA with:

Code:
Select Code
adb push bootanimation.zip system/media/
And I got this:

Code:
Select Code
shell@android:/ # adb push bootanimation.zip system/media/
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5038 *
* daemon started successfully *
error: device not found
1|shell@android:/ #
It doesn't recognize it...

I couldn't see my bootanimation though, the screen was pitch-black until the "OUYA" voice and logo popped out. I suppose it was an error on my end, I'll have to try with another bootanimation and see. Thanks.

Edit: I tried to push another bootanimation but now it won't recognize it again...

Edit 2: It worked again but without adb shell... I downloaded another bootanimation, and got the same results. Odd...

I'm having the same problem. The above commands presumably changed the filesystem to RW, but now when I try to push my file it says:
cannot stat 'OuyaCWMrecovery6.0.3.2flashable.zip': No such file or directory

I've tried everything I can think of. Restarting everything. Using the entire system path. Trying to leave shell and then run the command (which seems to send it back to r-o filesystem)
trying to rename the zip to make sure I'm typing the full thing correctly.

Any help?

Try doing adb shell as as super user and doing chmod 777 to any relevant directories on your Ouya (like /sdcard/ etc).
