Question Write Access to system/apps

Hi!

Sorry for the noob question but how do I gain full access (specifically write access) to system/app? I am rooted with NUTs .681 and every time I try to copy/paste a file into system/app I get permission denied. I am using ES file explorer with root explorer set to "ON".

I have tried a few apps from the playstore but none of them work!

An easy way would be appreciated!

Regards,

Alan

Try this test to check if root working properly

Install Android Terminal Emulator from Play Store

From terminal emulator type "su" without quotes

Check if any superuser app prompt your answer to grant it using root privileges

If you're asked, then your root working properly.

Now type "mount -o remount,rw /system". Is it still permission denied? If so, so your problem is Sony RIC. If it's success, then your /system can be wrote now. Try to copy something to /system now. Check if the permission still denied or granted.
