Default Enabling the read/write on fonts folder

Hi everyone,

I have been trying to enable the read and write on fonts folder by chmod

Unfortunately, nothing worked for me

everytime I write chmod 777 system/fonts/ on CMD it gives me an error message saying read only.


My device is rooted.


would appreciate any help


Thanks & Regards

Try adding su before chmod

For example

su chmod 777 directory

Exactly!

What you need to do is go to the terminal and type in the following commands:

Code:
su # gain root shell
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system  #remount the /system partition read/writte
