So I'm rooted but all the usual apps that I use to edit system files say the system is read only. What gives?

I'm rooted with Busybox installed

I thought only htc had this kind of security

Prompt reg. root no-go
hi,
maybe using aromafm in recovery mode
could help you get around it and fix things,
also sometime a dalvik/cache wipe will trigger cwm
to notify you that you've lost root and ask you if you
wish to fix it.
twrp does it to but, aromafm doesn't work in twrp.
lastlynsearch supersu update .zip and follow

bye

no root
I think that you're not root. Use root check o titanium to verify.

root checker said I'm root and I've been using other forms of root required apps... I just can't write to system... cwm "fixed" root but even after that I couldn't write to system. I even tried re-flashing the universal root but still nothing

so I figured out that it's not letting any app remount system as rw. even in terminal emulator I would telling system as rw and "mount" shows it as rw but if I exit out of terminal and go back in its still ro even though I never reverted

okay one more time
go online search aromafm, get, boot to cwm then flash aromafm, give it a second to get going
now, the is a terminal emulator built in logged in as root.
now cd directory and chmod file wherever and whatever those may be.
su bin attr is 6754
start there

okay you have custom recovery ?
if not goto tab 3 7.0 area of the forum find and follow rooting and recovery
if you do search online right now for supersu update zip, download the latest version [chainfire's website]
get it on your tab reboot into recovery, install then wipe cache goto advanced then wipe dalvik cache and reboot
i' online right now best time to wrk on this
